Steve Walsh Meroncourt’s Sales Director commented, "RAPTOR-GAMING has a great range of products from entry level through to high end for the PC Gaming Market. After some absence in the UK scene we are very pleased to bring them on board to compliment our other Gaming Ranges. We have had the hardware thoroughly tested and reviewed over the past few months by UK Gamers and specialist press with excellent results so we are confident we will make some good progress with RAPTOR-GAMING in this continually growing market"

Dirk Schunk, CEO of German based Raptor Gaming Technology GmbH said: "For some time we have been looking for the right strategic partner in the UK to represent and expand our RAPTOR-GAMING brand. Therefore we are very happy and proud to

announce our partnership with Meroncourt Europe for one of the key markets for Gaming in Europe, the UK and Ireland.”

About Meroncourt

Meroncourt Europe was established in 1997 and since then has expanded and grown extensively in both the product range available and the client base covered. The number of staff has continually increased to meet the demands and expectations of our customers. We are well known and respected in the industry as a trade supplier of Quality Computer Hardware, Networking and Accessories. We were the first distributor in the UK to really focus on the needs of the Independent Retailer and also the first to specialise on high end PC Gaming products for the UK. We continue to look at how we can help the market and our customers. What you see new at Meroncourt today you will see copied in the future - but probably not done so well.
