Western Digital has awarded their existing SanDisk distributor C.R.Kennedy & Company exclusive distribution in Australia of the G-Technology external storage range.

Western Digital’s G-Technology external storage products are ideal for professionals who demand the highest standards in build quality and reliability.

“The success we’ve had representing SanDisk in the Australian market has given Western Digital the confidence to appoint us as the exclusive G-Technology distributor,” said Clement Kennedy, director at C.R.Kennedy & Company.

The exclusivity agreement is recognition of C.R.Kennedy’s large presence in audio visual and industrial channels. Whilst demand for data storage amongst cinema, photo and audio professionals continues to grow, G-Technology offers large capacities, high read-write speeds, and RAID solutions.
