Industry News: Distribution Change for JVC in Australia
- Monday 24th October, 2011
In a joint announcement released today by Shriro & JVC Kenwood, it has been stated that effective 1st January 2012, the distribution of JVC brand products by Hagemeyer Brands Australia (HBA) a member of the Shriro Group of Companies, will be taken over by the brand holder JVC Kenwood Corporation.
According to the press release the decision was a mutual one and ties in with the overall integration of the JVC and Kenwood brand businesses management under the common ownership of JVC Kenwood Corp. that took effect in October this year.
Kenwood Electronics Australia (KEA) which currently has an office in North Ryde, will in addition to the KENWOOD brand also distribute JVC brand products within its business model.
As part of these changes, KEA will take over the functions of providing warranty and repair services to customers of JVC products, from 1st January, 2012.
It is both parties’ intention that this transition is a seamless one, for both the retailers and end users.
