Just Lamps invests in Sanyo lamp stock
Just Lamps has bought all remaining stocks of Sanyo lamps in both the UK and US, in a move it says will ensure continuity of supply for its trade customers.
"With the Sanyo brand about to disappear, there is massive uncertainty in the market place as to what will happen to lamps for legacy products" says Simon Kitson, Just Lamps’ European Sales and Marketing Manager.
"Resellers could be committed to servicing Sanyo models for several years to come, and we wanted to ensure that we could support them in meeting their obligations to their customers."
The move represents a significant financial investment by the distributor. "We’ve bought 6000 lamps" says Kitson, "but with the stock now sitting in our warehouse, we can deliver next day to most parts of the world."
