Ingram Micro is extending what has been its Canadian-only outlet program—selling refurbished and discontinued products—to solution providers and other channels in the United States.

The company announced the program June 12, saying it meets a significant demand in the marketplace for end-of-life technology.
"Technology is moving so fast today that yesterdays hot technology is quickly replaced by new products," said Tim Billing, vice president, North America retail and Internet sales, and the executive sponsor for Ingram Micro Outlet Canada and United States. "A good example is notebooks. Discontinued notebooks still have a very strong demand in the marketplace."
Ingram Micro began offering these products as an option for VARs and other channels in 2004. The success of that program has driven its extension in the U.S. market.
