Shure Distribution UK & SKB end partnership

Shure Distribution UK (SDUK) has announced the end of its distribution contract with US based case manufacturer SKB, by mutual agreement.

Shure Distribution UK will continue to supply SKB products until the New Year.

The company has said that its customers can be assured that they will continue to receive service and support until then. From the 1st January 2014 SKB Europe, based in the Netherlands, will take over distribution.

Peter James, SDUK MD, said: “SKB make cases for a plethora of applications, many of them outside our core focus of music, pro audio and broadcast. With the continued expansion of their range we have decided that the interests of both of our companies are best served by alternative distribution arrangements
“This decision allows us to concentrate our efforts solely on professional audio electronics from our portfolio of leading brands, each of whom have announced new products recently. SKB make excellent products and it has been a pleasure working with them. We wish them the very best for the future.”

David Sanderson Jr., SKB Director of International Sales and Business Development commented. “SKB would like to thank Shure for their years of service and wonderful staff. We wish them all all the best in their future endeavors.”
