Hi-Grade goes to Oz

UK computer company tries its luck down under

PC maker Hi-Grade is seeking a sunnier market for its goods, and will be selling to Aussie punters following a distribution agreement with QDI Interactive Computers.

Hi-Grade, a regular on the pages of PC Advisor, started life as a small reseller-cum-assembler, but has grown to become one of Europe's largest PC suppliers to government and corporate markets, as well as consumers.

In Australia it will be selling both through the retail channel and direct to end users, and QDI believes its line of rugged notebooks could prove popular among its new customers.

The company's Australian operations will officially be launched in September, but several trial customers have come on board in the meantime. When testing the market before the initial launch, QDI said the demand for the notebooks was been overwhelming. QDI has already signed up 30 percent more resellers since it began looking at distributing the Hi-Grade products.
