Robert Juliat has appointed two new distributors at the start of 2016, ACT CANADA and RM Multimedia.
ACT CANADA, has become the new exclusive distributor of Robert Juliat products in Canada, following the conclusion of a successful relationship with MDG which has chosen to focus on developing its own brand. The new arrangement with ACT Lighting takes effect from 1 January 2016.
“We have worked with ACT Lighting in the USA for the past year and have been exceedingly happy with the relationship that has formed between our companies in this region,” said Robert Juliat CEO, Francois Juliat.
“It is a logical transition for ACT CANADA to take on our distribution in Canada following MDG’s decision to cease all distribution of other brands. ACT Lighting has offices in Toronto as well as Los Angeles and New York and we are confident the new arrangements in Canada will prove as successful as those in the US.”
Bill Gallinghouse, ACT Lighting’s VP of Business Development said: “We have had an incredible first year with the Robert Juliat line of products in the USA, and could not be more pleased to take on the distribution in the Canadian market as well.”
In a second announcement, Robert Juliat has added RM Multimedia as new distributor for Italy. From 1 January 2016, RM Multimedia will distribute the full range of Robert Juliat lighting equipment and concentrate on promoting the brand in all regions of the Italian market.
Paula Poroliseanu, Marco Bartolini and Ermanno Tontini bring with them a wealth of experience as distributors of high end international brands.
“Ermanno and I have worked in the lighting industry since 1993 before moving to Robe Multimedia in 2008 to work together with Paula,” said Bartolini. “We changed our name to RM Multimedia one year ago and continue to expand our distribution portfolio year by year.
“Now we are very happy to have the distribution for Robert Juliat because it is a very important brand, which aligns with our philosophy. We only distribute professional equipment and the caliber of Robert Juliat is exactly what our customers expect from us.”
RM Multimedia has invested in a stock of Robert Juliat profiles and followspots in readiness for the commencement of its new role, while its team guarantees to deliver Robert Juliat customers with a high level of expertise in their projects, technical training, sales and after sales support.
