Having made a mark in the Japanese and European markets, NEC hopes to tap the small and medium Business (SMB) clients besides also the small office home office (SOHO) clients to grab a market share dominated by players like Lenovo, Hewlett Packard, Dell, IBM, Fujitsu, Acer and Hitachi.

The Japanese major made an entry in the UAE market about five years ago and sold a number of enterprise computers to the government departments and also to oil companies. Talking to the Khaleej Times, Vakis Chimonides, Sales Director of NEC computers of Middle East said, "We are already the leaders in the personal computers (PC) and server market in Japan and also have a sizeable share in the European markets and now plan to tap this market as well. We will focus on servers and solutions to be among the top five companies in the region." Mohammed Saleh Katout, Chairman of PCI said,"We are very pleased to add NEC computers to our product portfolio. NEC will help us to provide a wider range of solutions to our customers along with the ability to deliver first class services."
