Data Select enhances rugged credentials through AGM partnership

New durable smartphone brand adds to Data Select's current rugged line-up and provides even greater choice for the channel

Data Select Limited (“Data Select”), a leading UK mobile and tech distributor, has been appointed as the UK distribution partner by AGM Mobile Devices Europe, (“AGM”), a pioneer of durable mobile devices.

Established in 2008 by a passionate team of innovators, AGM’s vision has always been to create handsets that would not just be communication devices, but also practical assistants coupled with great design. AGM phones are built to withstand the everyday hazards users face.

AGM develops and produces mobile phones based on the IP68 and MIL-STD-810G outdoor standards and has also created its own standard called OEPT (Outdoor Environments Performance Test).

Kelly Cowan-Johnson, Head of Vendor Relations and Companion Products at Data Select stated “By partnering with AGM, we add another dimension to our rugged smartphone line-up. Coupled with our pedigree in rugged smartphones, we will work closely with our customers to drive this category and provide the necessary marketing support to succeed.”

Robert Pryke, CEO and Co-founder at AGM Mobile Devices Europe added, “Data Select were an obvious distribution partner for AGM due to their expert rugged knowledge and broad B2B and retail installed base. We look forward to taking the AGM brand out to the UK channel throughout 2019 and beyond.”

Initially, Data Select will be ranging AGM’s award-winning X3 and the A9 JBL rugged smartphones alongside the Floating Module.
