D-Link Moves Into New Facility to Consolidate Resources, Ease Distribution to Canadian Customers

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwire - August 31, 2009) - D-Link, the end-to-end computer networking solutions provider for consumers and business, today began operations from new facilities designed to make the company's Canadian operations even more responsive to the needs of end-users, solution providers and distributors across all provinces.

By consolidating three buildings into one efficiently designed 64,000 square-foot facility in one convenient location, D-Link is creating a more centralized distribution center while expanding its training and product demonstration areas to better meet the ever-changing needs of its customers both now and in the coming years.

"As we move forward out of a recessionary economy, D-Link is positioned to be an attractive alternative for brand agnostic, value-conscious organizations seeking to build and scale their computer networking capabilities," according to Nick Tidd, vice president of sales for D-Link Pan America and vice president of marketing for D-Link North America. "We are taking every step to fortify that position through operational efficiencies, increased productivity and other economies of scale, while passing the resulting cost-savings on to our customers."

Tidd added that D-Link's optimistic outlook for the second half of 2009 and beyond can be attributed to the following:

1.  D-Link managed to preserve or gain significant market share in both the
    consumer and business networking sectors.
2.  Increased demand for D-Link® switches to bolster commercial
    networking infrastructure, along with the expected 802.11n ratification
    later this year that will increase demand of wireless solutions.
3.  D-Link's ability to adjust resources and products for customer needs.
4.  A solid network of loyal value-added resellers, solution providers,
    distributors and other channel partners.

Tidd said visitors are welcome at the new facility, located about two kilometers from Highway 401 at the Mississauga Road or Winston Churchill Boulevard exits.
