Ayrton has to announced the appointment of Ampco Flashlight Sales as its latest exclusive distributor in its rapidly expanding international sales network. Based in Utrecht, Ampco Flashlight Sales will be responsible for the distribution of the entire portfolio of Ayrton products across The Netherlands.
With a history that stretches back 30 years, Ampco Flashlight Sales is a distributor, systems integrator and project house for both professional lighting and audio products. The company was responsible for the supply of all lighting, rigging, motion control and video to the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, including over 700 Ayrton fixtures, while its rental division has recently invested in Ayrton Ghibli and MagicBlade-FX to add to its hire stock.
“To be a distributor for Ayrton is a gift” said Ampco Flashlight Sales General Manager, Peter de Fouw. “We have been looking at Ayrton with interest for a couple of years. Then came the release of the new progressive fixtures, which really spurred us to talk to Ayrton and progress things further. Our communications with the team at Ayrton worked really well and proved that we are on the same level.
“The new Ayrton products like Mistral, Ghibli, Merak and now Bora and Khamsin are truly daily bread fixtures and strong workhorses for rental houses and venues. For Ampco Flashlight Sales, this is an opportunity to bring to market the most progressive and state of the art range of products which serve our target market exactly.”
“We are happy to welcome Ampco Flashlight Sales to the Ayrton family,” said International Sales Manager for Ayrton, Jerad Garza. “Ampco Flashlight as an organization proved to be top-notch, especially from our collaboration on Eurovision this year.
The reliability and road-worthiness of Ayrton products were more than evident on the show, which was the spark of interest that led us to this point. We agree that Ayrton’s products are an excellent match for Ampco Flashlight’s sales division as well and are excited by what our further collaboration will bring.”
