Convoy Comment On B&W Split
Following earlier reports that international audio brand Bowers & Wilkins plans to establish their own subsidiary in Australia, former distributor Convoy managing director Geoff Matthews has released a statement to assure both customers and clients that the company’s future is far from gloomy.
According to him, “whilst this was not in our plans it does not alter our overall strategy for a strong and profitable future for both Convoy and our loyal business partners.”
Specifically, Matthews highlights the distributor’s current contracts with Ingram Micro, JBL and Harman Kardon brands.
“For us at Convoy it will be business as usual and why not? We do after all have world class Brands and Products. From JBL, NAD, Bluesound, PSB, Music Hall, IsoAcoustics and soon to be joined Cary Audio and well, I can’t say anymore at this point but. . .”
Interestingly, Matthews says that Convoy’s journey with Bowers & Wilkins isn’t quite over yet. He confirmed that “the Brand will continue as we will act as their 3rd Party Warehouse and Distributor as well as providing full Technical /After Sales support and Spare Part delivery.”
Bowers & Wilkins Australia will take over all sales of Bowers & Wilkins products from August 1st 2017.
