ALTOS TAKES UNIX INTO HONG KONG, CHINA

By CBR Staff Writer

Altos Computer Systems, which already has an installed base of 400 Unix supermicros in Hong Kong and China, has bought up its former distributor in the colony to market the machines directly. The new venture, renamed Altos Computer Systems (Far East), was the marketing arm of its sales representative, Hi-Rel Computer Systems. According to Ken Boyce, Altos regional sales manager for Asia and Africa, the new venture will initially concentrate on Hong Kong and China, but will eventually expand its marketing and technical support throughout South-East Asia. Altos already has a major installation in the Agricultural Bank of China and plans to increase penetration of the market. It also has an unannounced deal for marketing of its machines in Japan under the name of a local manufacturer.
