Magma Partners with Tools 4 Media Based in Colombia to Reach New International Markets

Today Magma announced that Tools 4 Media, an Apple Authorized Service Center based in Bogota, Colombia, has become an authorized distributor of Magma products.

As Apple introduces the new Mac Mini and Mac Pro to Latin American markets, the need for expansion systems that enable high performance applications using traditional PCIe cards ­ such as professional audio and video ­ becomes immediate. To respond to such need, Magma is approaching Latin American resellers that cater to the performance-intensive market segment in their respective countries.

Tools 4 Media is the first Latin American distributor to stock Magma's Thunderbolt expansion systems available for immediate delivery. This maximizes customer satisfaction, since it can take 5-30 days for the product to be shipped from the United States, clear customs, and finally arrive at the customer's location.

”Magma's Thunderbolt expansion systems enable us to provide immediate expandability to Colombian customers purchasing Mac Mini and Mac Pro,” says Hernan Pinzon, CEO, Tools 4 Media. “Our clients' investment in costly editing and live audio and video equipment as well as applications is protected, as those systems can easily be migrated to the new Thunderbolt-based Mac's.”

“Tools 4 Media's commitment to provide complete solutions to professional audio and video users exemplifies the type of distributor we seek for all major Latin American countries,” says Tim Miller, CEO, Magma. “They have over 16 years of experience in the Latin American market, specializing in the import, marketing and distribution solutions for audio, video, cinema and design, making them a great partner for Magma. ”

With the addition of Tools 4 Media, Magma now deals with distributors and resellers in Colombia, Brazil and Mexico, and is actively recruiting resellers in other regions of Latin America.
