Seagate Technology Opens Collection Point in Ukraine

Seagate Technology (NYSE: STX), the world’s leading supplier of hard disc drives, has opened a collection point in Ukraine to enable its authorised distributors to better serve their customers. The collection point, in Kiev, is now fully operational.

The collection point processes return disc drives locally, speeding up and simplifying the return procedures for Seagate® drives. The collection points are operated on Seagate’s behalf by UPS.

“The opening of this collection point is further evidence of Seagate’s commitment to the Ukrainian market,” said Nina Trane, Seagate channel sales representative in Russia. “It strengthens our relationship with our direct customers enabling them to better service their own customers. Combined with the quality and breadth of our product offering, our dedicated marketing programmes and our industry leading five year warranty, we believe that this move will further strengthen the Seagate brand in the fast-growing Ukrainian market.”
