Kaiser Baas Set To Rationalise OZ Retailers, As They Expand OS
Melbourne based distributor Kaiser Baas is set to rationalise the retailers that sell their products in Australia, while also expanding their overseas operations, as demand for their “Value” drones, action adventure products and 360 degree cameras take off.
Neil Kaberry, the Global Sales Director at Kaiser Baas who is currently based in Melbourne will shortly move to London in an effort to build closer relationships with European and Middle East retailers who are now stocking their products.
At the same time the group that had “no exposure” to Dick Smith is set to stop dealing with several retailers, instead the Company plans to expand sales via Harvey Norman, JB Hi Fi and select specialist dealers in Australia.
The Company that were the first distributor to bring in the controversial Kaiser Baas, “Hoverboards” that ended up being one of the most sought after products during the Xmas, New Year, peak buying period is currently in the throes of launching a new range of drones, will shortly launch new 360 degree cameras and a new range of action cameras.
Speaking to ChannelNews Kaberry said “Currently I am spending half my night talking to retailers in Europe and the Middle East. I am moving to London so that I can get some sleep”.
He added” We have had a lot of growth and after much evaluation we have decided to concentrate on a select group of retailers in Australia who we believe can deliver growth for us. At the same time, we are expanding our overseas operations as demand for Kaiser Baas branded products are in big demand both in Nordic Countries the Middle East and the UK.”
“Adventure technology spanning drones, action cameras and to a degree virtual reality is really taking off and we have the right products to service the value end of the market”.
Recently the Company launched the Delta Drone quadcopter, decked out with both GoPro and Kaiser Baas X-Series action camera compatibility.
The Delta Drone sports a flight time of 17 minutes, a range of 400 m, and comes pre-programmed with geofencing at 300m, which stops it from flying out of the pilot’s visual line of sight.

The GPS return to home function, meanwhile, is designed to bring the Delta Drone back to its take-off location at the touch of a button.
