Seagate Technology (NYSE:STX), the world's leading hard disc drive supplier with German headquarters located in Munich today announced that Devil Computer GmbH has been named a Seagate Premier Partner for the marketing of the Company's complete line of data storage products. The Seagate Premier Partner program enables the Company to be more responsive and proactive to customers' need for information on its products and ultimately to assist resellers in selling those products and potentially boosting their bottom line.

"We are pleased with this distinction and the benefits it provides to us and to our customers, including increased product availability and support," said Devil Computer managing director Karsten Hartmann.

"The high levels of service, logistics capabilities and market share that Devil Computer provides in the German market make them an excellent partner for Seagate," said Seagate Channel Sales Representative Nigel Bissette.

Currently, there are only ten Seagate Premier Partners in Germany. They obtain Seagate goods directly from five authorized distributors, receive marketing support, technical help, sales training and are invited to unique partner events.
