AED Distribution, the exclusive supplier of QSC Pro Audio in the UK and Germany has announced it has taken its first steps in building a full retail network for the brand across both countries.
Choosing to partnering with selected dealers that are already specialised in QSC’s product portfolio of speakers, amplifiers and digital mixers, AED has officially appointed UK-based Leisuretec and Germany's Starpoint as new sub-distributors.
“Our selected dealer network allows us to redefine the local QSC Pro Audio market and the presence of the QSC brand in these two countries,” said Kenneth Bremer, business development manager at AED Distribution. “QSC is a premium and respected brand when it comes to audio solutions and it was important for us to partner up with dealers that truly understand the QSC DNA and show great enthusiasm in selling, demoing and using the QSC Pro Audio range.”
Located in Leighton Buzzard, Leisuretec brings strong knowledge of the UK market, as well as 25 years of experience in the business-to-business distribution of professional and commercial audio, lighting, video and special effects to the partnership.
”Together with AED Distribution, Leisuretec is focused to work towards a common goal – to provide to the customer the best possible service when it comes to supplying QSC Pro Audio products," commented Mike Henden, founder director of Leisuretec. “It is an honour for us to share our long-time knowledge and experience, which results in delivering the ideal solution for the UK customer. At Leisuretec, we look forward to contribute to the development of the QSC Pro Audio business in the UK."
Starpoint, which was established 27 years ago, is described as being one of the largest wholesalers in Germany for professional audio and lighting products, serving a strong trade network of professional installers and specialised dealers.
“We have always been very careful when it comes to expanding our product portfolio," added Starpoint MD Lutz Gehrke. “Starpoint is known for delivering the highest possible product quality and support. We have always worked with leading manufacturers who can deliver the quality that we expect for our customer. We are confident that with QSC Pro Audio and AED Distribution, we have found such a partner and are looking forward to further build upon QSC’s strong brand position here in Germany. Their products deserve this."
