DirectOut honours best distributor and best sales performance of 2015
Established over 65 years ago, Joseph Electronics has offices in both Illinois and California and represents over 100 premier brands in the broadcast and AV sectors. Particularly experienced in the burgeoning HDTV market, JE prides itself on being a full service solution provider offering dedicated sales and technical expertise at every stage of the project.
According to DirectOut’s Jan Ehrlich, JE was an obvious choice for the Distributor of the Year award for 2015. “We’ve been with JE since 2010 and they have always shown stable and steady growth, both in terms of DirectOut business, and of course their business as a whole,” he observed. “They are the perfect partner for us in the broadcast industry; JE’s customers value the high level of expertise and the ability to identify new requirements and develop solutions accordingly – very much like ourselves, in fact! Furthermore, 2015 was their best year to date with DirectOut products and saw the successful implementation of the largest implementation of DirectOut ever with the installation of a huge and highly complex media system into a corporate environment. The Distributor of the Year 2015 award is richly deserved!”
Joseph Electronics CEO Yohay Hahamy is pleased with the recognition. “DirectOut is a perfect example of the type of company whose products we are proud and happy to represent,” he said. “They’re a small company dedicated to excellence and eager to deliver the best possible service to their customers. As a result, they are extremely reactive and will always go the extra mile, including developing custom products. This is the kind of partnership that makes our business a success and a pleasure!”
ProLyd of Norway has also had an exceptional year with DirectOut. Specialized in recording studios, production, broadcast and education, ProLyd is now one of the leading distributors and professional audio solution providers in Norway. DirectOut has chosen to honour them with a special award for Outstanding Sales Performance in 2015.
“ProLyd has been doing an outstanding job with DirectOut over the last two years,” said Ehrlich. “In fact, they were our strongest sales partner in northern Europe and Scandinavia during 2015 despite being in a small market. Their customer base is equally spread amongst the studio, broadcast and pro audio markets, which is perfect for us, and their knowledge of DirectOut products and creativity in using them is second to none. Indeed, ProLyd was behind Europe’s single biggest custom installation project using several M.1K2s and over 20 ANDIAMOs.”
ProLyd’s chairman and product manager, Johannes Mollø-Christensen, is delighted with the award. “It’s true; we’ve had an exceptional year with DirectOut,” he acknowledged. “We couldn’t have hoped for better proof of a successful partnership. DirectOut’s company ethos is very similar to our own – they thrive on finding solutions to problems and their products are extremely high quality. I have no doubt that we will continue to be successful together. Who knows, maybe next year the Distributor of the Year award will have our name on it!”
