“At Lenovo, we understand the fundamental role that our partners play in our business operations, specifically when it comes to connecting us to our valued customers. To us, our partners are an extension of our very own teams, and for this reason, I am delighted to add Drive Control Corporation as a distributor in South Africa.

“I have no doubt that DCC will drive continued success for Lenovo across the SADC region. The insights and tools that we provide all of our partners will ensure that DCC are equipped to provide our customers with an unrivaled service timeously, effectively and with greater value,” says Thibault Dousson, country general manager at Lenovo.
