Tech Zone, Colombo’s most popular high-end computer store and a premier partner of Sri Lanka’s leading technology distributor eSys Technologies (a subsidiary of EZY Holdings), recently opened its showroom in Kandy as its first out of Colombo branch.

“The surge in demand for high end computer related products in Sri Lanka, together with the increasing use of computers resulted in Tech Information Solutions (Pvt) Ltd., the holding company of Tech Zone, taking the decision to seize this opportunity and expand its network. The Tech Zone Kandy branch fulfils the long felt need for a high end IT products store in the hill country by bringing the latest in computers and other related products at a very affordable price to the people of the hill capital,” said founder and Chairman of Tech Information Solution Mohamed Naushad.

The opening ceremony was attended by Defence Secretary Gotabaya Rajapaksa as well as Asoka De Silva, former CEO of People’s Bank and current Vice Chairman of Union Bank.

The new showroom is conveniently located at the Kandy City Centre, which is the largest shopping mall in the country, and attracts a large number of visitors daily. Commenting on Tech Zone’s expansion, Group Chief Executive Officer of EZY Holdings Shafraz Hamzadeen said that Tech Zone had grown tremendously in business scope during the past few years and had transformed from it being a mere computer vendor to a solutions provider.

“Its ability to continuously provide high-end technology solutions for computer geeks has undoubtedly been the key to its success. Its expansion to the hill capital displays its commitment to enhance IT literacy as well as increase the penetration of computers islandwide,” he added.

The new store in Kandy displays the most powerful desktop and laptop computers available in Sri Lanka with other accessories and peripherals. All world leading brands are sold at the store with comprehensive warranty at a competitive price.

The same support and after sales service offered by Tech Zone in Colombo through its operations at Unity Plaza is duplicated in Kandy too, with a well-equipped Service Centre manned by trained personnel.

“We have been operating for 12 years in Colombo successfully and have gained the trust of our customers with our diverse product offerings. The prospects for the IT industry look positive with the cessation of hostilities and the ensuing improvement in the economy,” said Naushad.

“As per our market studies, there is a vacuum in the availability of quality and reliable IT products in the Central Region and we look forward to fulfilling that need with our quality, branded products at the most affordable prices.”

He added that today’s customers were more sophisticated and demanding, with a greater knowledge and awareness of the latest products and technologies. “As a leading IT solutions provider, we are committed to bringing them to our customers ahead of the competition,” he asserted.

Tech Zone was recently recognised by Intel – the largest computer processor manufacturer in the world – as its Channel Partner Premier, which is another feather in its cap. The Intel Channel partner premier status is awarded to partners who have expertise with product knowledge and are top-performing resellers, with a wide distribution network in their territories.

This enables Tech Zone to access the highest levels of benefits from Intel and pass those benefits on to their customers.

In addition to being a leading distributor for Intel, Tech Zone also brings high-end computer components and accessories for gaming as well as high graphics.

The range includes Gskill, which is the world’s fastest memory module, EVGA branded VGA cards and mother boards, Inwin PC casing which is especially made for Gaming PCs to facilitate extreme performance and Razer keyboards, mouse and audio accessories for gaming use.
