Razer has partnered with Corex in a new distribution deal to bring top-tier gaming goodies to South Africa.
Corex will be the official distributor of Razer products throughout the country – Razer’s products include gaming mice, keyboards, headsets, mouse surfaces and accessories.
“Razer entered the South African market in 2007, supporting gamers from the onset and helping grow the gaming industry generally. We are working exclusively with Corex to service the distribution of our products to our retailers and customers to ensure seamless supply to the SA market,” said Thomas Buck, Razer Regional Sales Manager for Europe.
Despite global economic challenges in other markets, the gaming industry in South Africa continues to expand, with year-on-year growth over the past several years. South Africa’s video gaming market is currently worth R1.72 billion, according to local market research company, the GFK Group.
“Gaming is becoming more and more popular in South Africa and we are committed to assuring that gamers will have access to the phenomenal high-performance gaming products of Razer,” said Buck.
Razer also recently entered into an exclusive retail partnership with Musica, with the above mentioned products (except the Orochi) are exclusively available at Musica.
