A local office is a big plus for the customers

The need for spare parts for IT equipment is generally increasing, and according to IDC, which follows the technology markets closely, it is expected that just PC sales worldwide in 2021 will grow by as much as 18.2 percent, and this means a greater need for spare parts in addition, Convena Distribution aims to gain market share in Finland as well, for this type of product.
