DTS is proud to announce a new distribution agreement with Group One Ltd. – the renowned US distributor for a number of top lighting brands. The contract has been inked by Paolo Albani, DTS sales and marketing director and Jack Kelly, Group One president.
Effective as of October 1, Group One is now handling all US (including Puerto Rico) sales and support activities for DTS. Reporting to Kelly, National Sales Manager Brad White and National Sales Manager Tyler Wise are jointly tasked with spearheading Group One’s efforts with the DTS brand.
“DTS joined Group One on several Lighting Roadshow tours for Avolites and elektraLite this year, and the chemistry between our teams and brands made it obvious that we should be working together” says Kelly. “Our team actually goes back 25 years with lighting products from Italy, and after investigating the market and DTS’ products over the past quarter, we’re very pleased to announce this new partnership. DTS is a terrific fit to our portfolio of lighting products, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to maximize the brand’s visibility to the widest possible audience” said Kelly.
Paolo Albani adds “We are very proud to start our relationship with Group One and know that they are the right partner to bring our products to the American market; DTS is currently experiencing its best sales year ever thanks to exciting new products and initiatives, and this agreement is a solid ‘next step’ in our successful global growth strategy.”
Group One’s Brad White shares his thoughts as well, “DTS’ worldwide reputation for quality and performance perfectly complements Group One’s other lighting brands. With all of their new products and innovation, re-launching this Italian-made brand here in the States is already proving to be very exciting.”
