Distributors of the Year 2018

In 2018 DirectOut distributors Aspen Media (UK) and TAC SYSTEM (JP) have excelled in their performances according to the company. Managing Director, Jan Ehrlich was proud to present them with the Distributor of the year (Aspen Media) and Outstanding Sales Performances (TAC SYSTEM) Awards.

Founded in 1997, Aspen Media is receiving DirectOut's Distributor of the Year Award for the second time already. The UK-based distributor of audio and control products for Broadcast, Live and Recording industry is being acknowledged for its overall-package and performance.

Chris Collings, Director of Aspen Media, was very pleased to receive the award, “We are so excited about this Award. We simply work at being the face and voice of DirectOut in the UK. Our success is the result of this hard work at both our companies and a common purpose for doing the right thing for our mutual customers.”

“Selecting the partner to be awarded is never an easy decision”, states Ehrlich, “but apart from a very successful and strong 2018 with Aspen Media, they have become one of the few distributors where the entire package is very close to perfect. In a market where you need a strong partner to thrive, Chris Collings and his experienced team are doing an extraordinary job in representing DirectOut and supporting our clients.”

The last two years were exceptionally successful in the cooperation of DirectOut with TAC SYSTEM. The renowned Japanese distributor has over 20 years of experience in the professional audio market and its founder Tac Yamamoto is one of the pioneers of the Japanese music industry and professional audio market. Being the first distributor of DirectOut and looking back on a successful ten-year relationship, the company was very delighted to receive the Outstanding Sales Performances Award for the highest turnover in 2018.

“It was an honour to award our very first distributor in recognition of their recent performance. We couldn´t have asked for a better partner to represent us in the Japanese market.” Jan Ehrlich acknowledges, “TAC SYSTEM has been with us from the beginning and their knowledge of our products and their ways of finding solutions for our Japanese customers have always had that little extra, which makes it such a joy to work with them.”
