Christie has appointed Stampede Europe as its new distribution partner for its business products, LED and videowall solutions.
“For years, Stampede has served as Christie’s largest value-added distributor in the United States, Canadian, and Latin American markets, helping to establish the company as a pioneer in the display and projector industry,” stated Stampede CEO Mark Wilkins.
“Christie offers an unprecedented combination of consistent product and high-quality service, allowing us to offer our resellers the right product targeted to the right application, and be completely confident of support. And now, with the opening of Stampede Europe and the acquisition of UK-based Just Lamps, we have the sales and marketing infrastructure in place to extend a very successful distribution partnership to the UK and beyond.”
“Christie has a long and successful relationship with Stampede in North America so it was natural to continue that with their expansion into the UK market. We found that Stampede NA has a fresh, dynamic marketing dimension and have been a proven force in marketing terms to deliver our products and services to a wider audience,” said Dale Miller (pictured), executive VP, global sales, for Christie. “We’re confident that Stampede will be able to leverage from their NA experience to help drive forward in developing the market place in new territories”
Simon Smith, VP Christie EMEA added: “In recent years Christie has introduced a huge number of new products and services. When you consider the range and level of performance we can offer tailored to specific applications, this is a great time for Stampede to extend the consistent growth we have enjoyed with our existing distributors.”
According to both Wilkins and Miller, while the new agreement currently includes the UK, the plan is to expand the Stampede-Christie network globally.
