Bell Microproducts has been named U.S. distributor authorized by Apple to carry their complete product line including storage and server solutions, PowerBooks, PowerMacs, iMacs, and iPods. Bell Microproducts will distribute Apple’s product offerings to value-added resellers (VARs), integrators and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) through its channel-focused U.S. sales operations. These distribution and market development activities will be augmented with pre- and post-sale technical and value-added support from the Bell Microproducts solutions centers across the U.S.
In addition, Bell Microproducts will leverage the depth of its line card with Apple’s complete product line to offer our customers a single source for complete server and storage solutions. Bell Microproducts will be able to integrate Apple’s line with other products to deliver complete turnkey solutions to our customers. This will allow Bell Microproducts to work at a higher level of complexity to offer our channel a wider range of high performance, cost-efficient, cross-platform solutions.
Bell Microproducts offers their customers the opportunity to become Apple Authorized. From Bell’s robust line card to Apple’s complete product line, Bell offers a single source for complete server and storage solutions.

“The deal makes Bell the third distributor of Apple products in the United States. Clearwater, Fla.-based Tech Data has been carrying Apple’s entire line since the companies signed a distribution deal in early 2000. And Ingram Micro, which signed with Apple in 1992, is currently the Cupertino, Calif., computer maker’s largest distributor, accounting for about 70 percent of Apple’s products sold through distribution, said a spokesperson for the Santa Ana, Calif.-based distributor,” Joseph F. Kovar reports for CRN.
