Shure names exclusive distributor for Italy
Prase Engineering S.p.A., located in Venice, Italy, will become the exclusive Shure / DIS distributor in the country. A long-time distributor of DIS conferencing products in Italy, Prase Engineering will take over distribution from Sisme S.p.A, Shure’s current distributor, who will continue representing the line until January 15.
“Prase Engineering is a well-established and highly-respected distributor in the market,” said Ron Marchant, Shure EMEA’s General Manager of Sales.
“Their business focus and strengths aligns well to our strategy in the country and positions us well for future growth, in particular, in the system integration market.”
Ennio Prase, CEO of Prase Engineering, said: “We are tremendously excited about representing Shure in Italy. The addition of Shure’s broad product portfolio complements and significantly strengthens our current audio portfolio allowing us to offer an even wider range of innovative, value-added audio solutions to the system integration, pro audio and retail markets.”
With this change, Shure will part ways with long-time distributor Sisme S.p.A.
“Naturally the decision to change distribution after such a long, fruitful partnership is difficult,” explained Marchant.
“Sisme has been our trusted partner in the Italian market for 50 years and we’d like to sincerely thank their organization for their dedication and commitment to growing the Shure brand.”
