Target Components has been appointed UK distributor by motherboard and hardware manufacturer, ECS EliteGroup.
The appointment means Target now stocks ECS’s range of motherboards, barebones and small form factor PCs.
ECS (EliteGroup Computer Systems) was established in Taiwan in 1987 as a manufacturer of motherboards and, after merging with PCChips, extended its range to become one of the largest manufacturers in the World. The company has won several accolades including first manufacturer to produce a 64-bit motherboard, first to introduce dual-chip motherboards, and first motherboard manufacturer to be listed publicly in Taiwan, resulting in its first year of 1.5m unit sales in 2001.
This heritage and commitment to producing low-cost, high-quality motherboards has resulted in ECS being chosen as OEM manufacturer for several high-profile brands over the past 20 years.
Distributor Target now stocks ECS EliteGroup’s motherboard and mini-PC range, including the smallest 4K PC in the World, the Liva Q2.
Martyn Kirby, Target’s Head of Purchasing, explained: “We’re delighted to have ECS on board, they’re well-known throughout the industry for quality products. What’s less well-known is that they manufacture on behalf of several other well-known brands - many of our customers will have used ECS in the past, although they may not realise it. We’ll be showing the range at our free event, NewTech, on 25th January, including a demonstration of the formidable Liva Q2, the World’s smallest 4K PC which is ideal for a range of uses, including digital signage or as a powerful but discreet family PC.”
ECS EliteGroup’s European Sales Manager, Aurora Hung, said; “We are delighted ECS EliteGroup is being distributed by Target. Many of their customers will be very aware of ECS already but this is a great opportunity to get in front of lots of different types of resellers, from independent retailers to systems builders, repair specialists, value-added resellers and service providers. And we’re really looking forward to the response to our newest mini-PCs.”
