MAPEX USA TO DISTRIBUTE VIC FIRTH AND REMO PRODUCTS
December 14, 2007 — Beginning in January 2008, Mapex USA will distribute Vic Firth sticks and Remo drum heads. Mapex Vice President and General Manager, Joe Vasko sees this move as an ideal opportunity to extend Mapex’s already rapid growth. Mapex products have enjoyed a significant gain in market share over the last three years.
“We are very excited to team up with two of the top brands in the percussion industry,” said Vasko. “We will deliver Vic Firth and Remo products with the same high quality service, flawless fill rates and same-day shipping that our dealers have come to expect.”
“Our sales staff has been trained directly by Firth and Remo representatives and we will continue in the future with periodic educational sessions that will keep our team up to date on both product lines,” said Scott Sasser, Mapex USA National Sales Manager.
Vic Firth commented, “I look forward with great exuberance to this new relationship. I’m sure both parties will prosper with much success.”
Mapex will participate in Vic Firth and Remo merchandising programs and is equipped to outfit its dealers with point-of-purchase materials and customer service.
Products for both product lines are in stock in all three warehouses Mapex warehouses in Tennessee, Texas and California. Mapex Dealers can order Remo and Vic Firth products by contacting their Regional Sales representative or contacting Mapex directly at 888-627-3987.
