Scaling Snowdon A group of eleven people (pictured) from Zyxel Networks and distributor Intec Microsystems recently took part in a testing six-hour hike up Yr Wyddfa (Mount Snowden) in Wales to raise funds for Birmingham Children's Hospital. Standing at over 3,000 feet, the iconic Yr Wyddfa is the highest mountain in the Eryri (Snowdonia) National Park – and the highest point in the British Isles outside the Scottish Highlands. Intec Microsystems Sales Director John Lester said: “This charity climb carries a message of unity and hope. The joint efforts of Intec Micros and Zyxel Networks remind us that even in the midst of our busy lives and demanding professions, we can make a positive impact. We hope this sends a powerful message about unity, empathy, and the capacity for change that resides within each and every one of us.” • Exclusive stockist partner Drytac, the international manufacturer of selfadhesive materials for the large-format print and signage markets, has appointed Premier Paper Group as its exclusive stockist partner in the UK and Ireland. Premier will now distribute a wide range of Drytac products and solutions to customers in the UK and Ireland. Drytac’s extensive collection of materials covers all manner of applications and markets and will appeal to new and existing Premier customers active within a host of industries. The decision to designate Premier as an exclusive stockist comes after Drytac began working with the supplier in July. CEO Hayden Kelley said: “We have very much enjoyed working with Premier over the past couple of months and have already felt the benefits of this partnership. “In order to streamline our distribution across the UK & Ireland, we have decided to make the stockist arrangement exclusive – making it even easier and quicker for our customers to purchase Drytac products.” • Best Workplaces in Tech The 2023 UK’s Best Workplaces in Tech list, launched by Great Place To Work UK, recognises TD SYNNEX UK among the list of organisations in the super large category.
