As part of its overall European route-to-market consolidation process, Pioneer DJ has chosen Leisuretec as its sole distributor in the UK. The process seeks to focus attention and support on a tighter network of high-end professional specialists with direct accounts or indirect specialists through distribution partners such as Leisuretec.
The role of Pioneer DJ trade distributors across Europe is to focus on the installation, hire and production market places for its DJ range and new XPRS active PA speaker range. Leisuretec are also authorised to supply smaller specialist retailers who meet Pioneer DJ’s criteria but do not qualify for a direct account through being unable to meet its minimum turnover requirement. Additionally, their large stockholding means they can comfortably maintain supply to all sectors when demand spikes. In stocking a variety of complementary products such as lighting, commercial audio, video and special effects, Leisuretec constitutes a convenient one-stop shop for all Pioneer DJ’s business to business customers.
Pioneer DJ Europe’s Martin Dockree – Country Sales Manager for UK and Ireland expresses his satisfaction with the arrangement: “Leisuretec have an excellent record of customer service and product knowledge and over the course of our 21 year relationship they have worked consistently to uphold the set criteria and values of our evolving selective distribution network and policy. When Pioneer DJ Europe split from the Pioneer corporation last year and became a completely new company – with all the challenges that entailed – Leisuretec’s excellent support during that period of growth made this appointment a very easy decision.”
Leisuretec’s Founder Director Mike Henden added: “Our association with Pioneer DJ goes way back to 1995 when Pioneer entered the DJ market and selected Leisuretec to distribute it’s ground breaking CDJ-500 top-loading CD ‘deck’. Since then, the Pioneer DJ range has grown to encompass more than ninety products. We are proud to have maintained our great relationship with Pioneer for many years and are delighted to become Pioneer DJ’s sole trade distributor in the UK. Our experienced team, high levels of customer service and good stock holding will ensure availability and continuity of supply of this Premium brand.”
