Fujitsu has signed its first assembly deal with a reseller,following the example of IBM and Hewlett-Packard.
Giant US dealer Microage will begin assembling Fujitsu notebooks when the terms can be agreed. Fujitsu PC president George Everhardt said custom configuration is important to US corporate customers. Fujitsu is the first major to offer significant build to order facilities for notebooks.
"Moving final assembly closer to the customer will minimise obsolescence and costs," he said. Microage president Bob O?Malley said the agreement fits the dealer?s strategy to offer customers more options when they buy kit from the company.
Microage already has a similar deal with IBM and has recently agreed to become the first reseller to assemble IBM servers.
