Audio products manufacturer Blackbox has today announced a partnership with Kondor as its exclusive distribution partner in the UK and Ireland.
Kondor will develop retail and e-tailer accounts for Blackbox, which is launching in the UK market following success in New Zealand, Australia and Canada. Kondor will manage four noise-cancelling headphone and earphone products from the Blackbox range initially, focusing on introducing partners that reflect the brand’s best-in-class performance and value pricing.
The Blackbox product range features ANR TM (Active Noise Rejection) technology, developed by Phitek Systems. The company claims its unique patented technology delivers 92% noise-cancellation by continuously adjusting and responding to disturbing background noise.
Neil Truckell, UK brand manager of Blackbox, said: ‘Blackbox has enjoyed considerable success in breaking new markets around the world and selecting the right distribution partner is a critical element in building market share. Kondor offers the specialist sector expertise we demand and their track record in building retail channels is very strong.’
Michael Bartlett, commercial director at Kondor, said: ‘We’re impressed with the quality of Blackbox’s range and the company’s ambitions for the UK market, and we’re pleased to be appointed exclusive distributors. The Blackbox product range complements our current portfolio very well and offers the right mix of product quality and margin to present a very attractive product line for retailers.’
