We are authorized distributors for leading global IT hardware & software brands. Our growing brand portfolio includes HP, Dell, Acer, Toshiba, Lenovo, Samsung, Tripplite, BenQ and Microsoft.

As one of the Africa’s largest IT distributors, MITSUMI is the conduit through which the power of technology flows to 12 Countries in Africa. In fiscal year 2011, we sold IT products to more than 6,000 technology resellers in over 12 Countries. Every day these resellers depend on us to help them cost-effectively support the technology needs of end users of all sizes, including small- and medium-sized businesses, large enterprises, educational institutions, government agencies, and consumers.

MITSUMI is a leading technology distributor with a wide network of resellers acting as a one stop shop of IT for dealers and resellers in Africa. MITSUMI distributes a wide range of products covering Computers, Data Centre, Storage, Security, Networking, Software and Hardware. 

The company has operations in 19 countries in Africa. The market covered by MITSUMI includes East, West, North and Southern Africa. We have Sales and Stock points in Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Uganda, Rwanda, DRC, South Sudan, Nigeria, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Benin, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Mozambique, Zambia, Namibia, Mauritius and Madagascar including strategic mother hub in Jebel Ali (U.A.E). More than 150 employees and subsidiaries and 12 locations ensure speedy, effective and professional service to resellers throughout Africa. MITSUMI plays a vital role in the value chain, linking manufacturers of technology to thousands of resellers covering wide geographical territories. In-country facilities and regional stocking points across the African markets catalyzed the growth of MITSUMI. 

We have 15 warehouses and 8 service centers in Africa and a strategic motherhub warehouse located in Jebel Ali, Dubai. These capabilities help us reduce turnaround time in distributing products to the African markets. MITSUMI’s credit facilities to partners also consolidated its leadership advantage in Africa. MITSUMI has a first-mover advantage in Africa since the company was the first to establish a chain of in-country presence in Africa ranging from facilities like warehousing, stocking points and support service centers in 1996. 

MITSUMI’s regional geographical coverage and extensive customer base has made the group the largest and fastest growing distributor in Africa. We will remain invested and create new business avenues to enhance life styles in Africa. We have established a reputation as one of the most dependable and customer centric distributor in Africa. We have a Pan Africa distribution strategy/vision, strong in-country presence and targeted marketing campaigns which will take IT distribution to the next level.
