Christie has appointed Stampede Europe as a distribution partner handling Business Products, LED and videowall products and systems.

Stampede has partnered with Christie for a number of years in North America and the move follows Stampede’s entrance to the European market with the opening of its UK office.

Mark Wilkins Stampede CEOMark Wilkins, CEO of Stampede and Dale Miller, executive vice president for global sales at Christie, confirmed that the newly-signed agreement currently includes the UK with plans to continue to expand the Stampede-Christie network globally.

“For years, Stampede has served as Christie’s largest value-added distributor in the United States, Canadian, and Latin American markets, helping to establish the company as a pioneer in the display and projector industry,” said Wilkins. “Christie offers an unprecedented combination of consistent product and high-quality service, allowing us to offer our resellers the right product targeted to the right application, and be completely confident of support. And now, with the opening of Stampede Europe and the acquisition of UK-based Just Lamps, we have the sales and marketing infrastructure in place to extend a very successful distribution partnership to the UK and beyond.”

Miller added: “Christie has a long and successful relationship with Stampede in North America so it was natural to continue that with their expansion into the UK market.”

Simon Smith vice president Christie EMEASimon Smith, vice president of Christie EMEA, said: “When you consider the range and level of performance we can offer tailored to specific applications, this is a great time for Stampede to extend the consistent growth we have enjoyed with our existing distributors.”
