Argosy, a leading international supplier of broadcast cables and infrastructure products, has relocated its Dubai office to the city’s Oud Maitha area in order to hold more stock and deliver faster and more efficient services to its Middle East customers.
The larger facility enables Argosy to locally stock higher volumes of its expanding product portfolio, such as racking and mains distribution units, video, audio and data cabling, connectors and patching, SMPTE and fiber assembly equipment, along with KVM and network switches.
Argosy is "very positive" about the growth potential of the Middle East market. Countries like Oman, Bahrain and Lebanon have seen a recent growth in the sports sector meaning more stadiums and arenas have been built for boxing, football and tennis tournaments. This in turn has increased the need to produce local content.
The UK-based firm's new Dubai office brings relevant and critical stock back into the region, offering Argosy clients reduced lead times and a facility to supply to ongoing projects where specific products may be urgently required.
This enables regional clients to begin projects earlier, with the readily-available products stocked in Dubai.
As the Middle East moves towards 4K, Argosy’s new partnerships with Mellanox Technologies, Canare, Allied Telesis, BarnFind, kvm-tec and other suppliers will support the region’s content producers and broadcasters as they implement their 4K technology upgrades.
On top of its cable and infrastructure lines, Argosy also offers a range of active hardware, from intelligent power supplies to managed switches for high-capacity IP or 12G SDI.
