DirectOut awards Aspen Media Ltd (UK) as ‘Distributor of the Year’ for the third time in the history of the company, while Tonspur AG (Switzerland) and tm stagetec systems (Australia) are recognized with the ‘Best Sales Performance’ and the ‘PRODIGY of the Year’ awards.
Distributor of the Year
They say that three is a magic number. In this case the third recognition given to Aspen Media as distributor of the year, after the prizes received in 2013 and 2018, is tangible proof of a very special relationship between the German manufacturer and the British distribution company. A cooperation which has been bearing fruits for more than a decade and grows stronger year after year.
Chris Collings, director of Aspen Media, proudly accepts the award, "DirectOut makes it very easy to be a successful distributor for them. They are one of the few companies that totally understand the challenges that distributors are facing. This success is not just for Aspen Media, but for all the dealers, installers, and people that support us."
Jan Ehrlich, CEO of DirectOut, acknowledges the great work Aspen Media has done over the years, "This award is our special thanks to Aspen Media for a great and long-lasting cooperation and for the very special commitment Aspen Media shows according to their clients and us as a manufacturer. The last few years have been quite challenging for everybody, but Aspen Media is one of the very few examples which is always demonstrating comprehensive performance at its best."
Outstanding Sales Performance
The second award handed out by DirectOut recognizes the sales performance of business partners operating in smaller markets that have proven to be reliable and successful distributors: this is the case for Tonspur AG. The company based in beautiful Lucerne has been the official DirectOut distributor for Switzerland since 2017. Over the years the knowledge of the products by Hansjürg Meier and his team has been steadily growing and the sales have followed the same trend.
Meier, managing director of Tonspur AG, remains speechless when receiving the award, "I’m out of words. All I can say is, thank you very much on my behalf and on behalf of the entire Tonspur team."
PRODIGY of the Year
For the third time in a row tm stagetec systems has received a DirectOut award collecting the full set of different trophies handed out by the company. This time it receives the `PRODIGY of the Year´ award for being one of the distribution companies which not only performed best in terms of PRODIGY sales, but also for the different applications and markets where these products have been installed.
Treva Head, Managing Director of TMS, is thrilled to receive another prize from DirectOut. "We feel very honored in receiving our third award, Prodigy of the Year!
It’s an absolute dream working with DirectOut, and the PRODIGY series has been a game changer for our customers. So to be receiving this award is special. As our business in Australia and New Zealand continues to grow, it’s exciting to see all the new products and feature updates DirectOut continues to make, and we look forward to continually pushing the boundaries of the technology together."
Ehrlich concludes, “Despite the challenges that the pandemic and the supply chain issues brought into our world, the year 2021 has opened for DirectOut a season of exceptional growth which is continuing steadily in 2022. This growth would not have been possible without our reliable network of business partners around the globe.”
