New distributor for Philips monitors in the UK: Exertis
Amsterdam, 31 July 2015 — MMD, leading technology company and brand licence partner for Philips monitors, further enhances its commitment in the retail and B2B sectors by assigning Exertis as new distributor in the UK. Exertis is the leading technology distributor of IT, communications and home entertainment products in the UK. The cooperation is set to begin 1 August 2015.
A strong team
Representing over 200 manufacturers in the UK alone, Exertis distributes more than 25,000 products ranging across a great variety of IT related goods. This makes Exertis one of Europe’s largest and fastest growing technology distribution and specialist service providers. A great opportunity for MMD: Benefitting from Exertis’ retail expertise will assist in further growing market shares for Philips monitors in the B2B sector.
“We are extremely excited to have MMD on board. The imminent launch of Philips monitors within Exertis is a well-conceived step: Both companies have spent a great deal of time looking at joint incremental business opportunities across Philips’ diverse product mix to ensure mutual market share growth.” says Ian Aitken, General Manager Visual Business Unit, Exertis. “We are convinced that this partnership will be beneficial to us, Philips and the wider TFT market”.
Tried and tested

Both brands share the same parent company: TPV – the world’s largest monitor manufacturer and leading display solutions provider,” explains Paul Butler, Regional Sales Director UK and Ireland for MMD Monitors and Displays as well as AOC International. “Next to having the ease-of-mind of working with a trusted and competent partner, we are now able to round off the product portfolio with unique Philips innovations such as PowerSensor, ErgoSensor and SoftBlue.”
