Dealers across the United States Canada and Latin America were caught off guard by Toshibas plans to shut down its business phone division.
In a letter this week Brian Metherell vice president and general manager of Toshiba America Information Systems (TAIS) Telecommunication Systems Division (TSD) notified dealers of the pending closure.
"Toshiba has deemed it necessary to wind down our Telecommunication Systems Division (TSD) business starting immediately" he said. Toshiba Canada also will be announcing the wind-down of its telecommunications business and TSD will no longer be selling in Mexico.
TSD is a manufacturer of IP business telephone systems designed for small-to medium-size businesses and larger enterprises with multiple locations.
