Korg USA has announced that, as a result of its efforts thus far to build the brand in the U.S., it has been appointed the exclusive distributor for Blackstar products in Canada. Korg USA will be handling all shipping and logistics out of Canadian warehousing facilities and will offer Canadian dealers the same level of customer service and support that U.S. dealers have come to expect from Korg USA as the distributor for Korg, VOX Amplification, Blackstar Amplification, Lâg and HK Audio in that market.
Ian Robinson, Blackstar Amplification Managing Director, commented, “Korg USA have proven themselves to be great partners in the U.S. market, with a sales and marketing know-how that have taken Blackstar to the next level. We are pleased to expand our relationship with them in the Canadian market, where we look forward to continuing to share our passion for delivering outstanding innovations to musicians.”
Korg USA President Joe Castronovo noted, “We are thrilled to partner with Blackstar in this new capacity. Blackstar has taken the U.S. market by storm, and we’re ready to bring their dynamic, world-class products to players of all genres of music in the Canadian market.”
Korg USA’s New York-based distribution facility will also offer a dedicated marketing staff, as well as sales and product support personnel. In addition, field specialists will be supporting sales efforts by visiting Canadian dealers to assist with in-store marketing efforts and consumer clinics.
Korg USA’s sales representatives for Blackstar in Canada will be Robert Langlois and Martin Richmond. Music retailers in Canada who are interested in Blackstar can initially e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 647.260.0765 for more information.
