Distribution shake-ups mark new financial year

With the onset of a new financial year in many parts of the region it seems that plenty of vendors are engaged in a shake up of their distribution channels.

Several changes and replacements have made it into the InAVate news folder in the last week or two, so here’s a summary:

As of April 1st the ProSound division of Bosch Security Systems UK is distributing both Dynacord and Electro-Voice in the United Kingdom. Dynacord was previously carried by Polar Audio, and Electro-Voice by Shuttlesound, which was subsequently bought by Bosch UK.

At ISE 2012 APart Audio agreed a distribution contract for the United Arab Emirates. Dutco Tennant is now the new distributor for APart products in the UAE.

Mitsubishi Electric Visual Information Systems division has announced Impact as a dedicated reseller of their complete range of AV solutions. Under the new partnership Impact will sell Mitsubishi’s range of projectors, public LCD monitors and display wall cubes within the UK.

Finally, AV designer and manufacturer Smart-e has announced a new distribution agreement with the Steljes Group, which has become its UK and Ireland distributor to the AV and IT reseller channel. The agreement came into effect on April 1st.
