Archion Technologies Partners with EMEA Gateway for Expansion into Europe
Designed with the needs of the post-production and graphic design communities in mind, Archion Technologies is leading the way in storage intelligence and solutions for cross-platform, shared media workflows. So triumphant in this arena, Archion’s high-performance, robust storage technology has been critical to the success of hundreds of TV and feature film projects.
“Our expansion strategy has always included a route to market in the EMEA region but we recognised we needed to find the right business partner, with the appropriate skills, to lead our charge into this geography — and EMEA Gateway, with its depth of experience and established links, is the perfect choice for Archion,” said Mark Bianchi, Chief Executive Officer at Archion Technologies. “EMEA Gateway not only understands the workflow challenges inherent in today’s broadcast business and the needs of the ever-changing media landscape, but their ability to cost-effectively enable us to access new markets and revenue streams by utilizing their extensive network — with a limited outlay — is a very attractive value proposition.”
“Archion Technologies is a well-respected and successful brand in North America and we are very excited about supporting the company’s expansion into the EMEA market and driving sales revenue for their robust storage solutions,” said Guy Elliott, Managing Director of EMEA Gateway. “Archion’s products are tried and test in some of the most rigorous and demanding post production environments. These competitively-priced, reliable, state-of-the-art solutions are ideal to meet the growing demands for storage from the broadcast and post-production communities in this region.”
Archion will showcase its storage solutions for the first time in this region on EMEA Gateway’s inaugural stand at IBC 2010 — stand no. 7.G12 (RAI Exhibition Centre, Amsterdam, 10-14th September 2010).
