AUTHOR: Inavate

Connectivity solutions provider Gefen has announced it has expanded its presence in Europe to better serve the region.

Gefen Distribution GmbH, based in Munich, Germany, offers a full-service distribution and storage facility for 20 countries throughout Europe, with possible expansion as necessitated by the industry.

With direct shipping and local customs control, Gefen Distribution GmbH will enable the timely delivery of audio/video enhancement equipment made by Gefen. Led by Florian Goebel, general manager, the 12-member team will service the European region with shipping, warehouse facilities, technical support, sales and marketing services.

“This was a natural transition for us,” said Goebel, founder of Gefen Distribution GmbH & Co. “We distributed Gefen solutions for many years as SDI GmbH to the German market, and believed it was time for a larger presence in an area where digital TV is rapidly developing.”

The German offices supply the full line of Gefen’s professional quality extenders, switchers, scalers, splitters and cables, as well as the new GefenTV line for prosumers and home theater enthusiasts.

“We’re thrilled to have a more robust presence in the European market,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen Inc. “We’re dedicated to improving our local availability and delivering solutions to these key European countries in a timely manner with support readily available during local business hours.”

Gefen Distribution GmbH handles sales and distribution for: Austria; Belarus; Bosnia; Bulgaria; Croatia; Czech Republic; Cyprus; Denmark; Estonia; Finland; Germany; Greece; Latvia; Lithuania; Poland; Romania; Serbia; Slovakia; Slovenia and Sweden.
