As of June 30th, 2021, the three leading photo & video distributors Focus Nordic, Transcontinenta Group and Digit Access have formed a partnership in order to further develop the European photo & video market. The intention of this initiative is to be in forefront of the business for the benefit of our mutual suppliers, customers, and consumers.
Focus Nordic, present in 28 markets in Scandinavia, Baltics, Central and Eastern Europe, and Transcontinenta Group, present in the Benelux region, Germany, the UK, and Ireland, have acquired one third each of Digit Access, present in France, Spain and Portugal.
We are pleased to partner up with two of the most important photo & video distributors and together develop the European market for photo & video accessories. In this way, we will be able to offer our suppliers and customers the most dynamic product offering in the market, says Melchior Lopez, CEO and co-owner of Digit Access.
The cooperation between the three distributors will focus on the brands that are in common and respect other brands and areas where collaboration is not suitable. Customer service, IT, marketing, and logistics are some of the areas where the partners will exchange best practice and collaborate.
The partnership with Transcontinenta Group and Digit Access will accomplish our mission to provide end-users with everything they need for an optimal photo, video, and optics experience and to be the best partner for our suppliers and customers by adding value to their business, adds Jonas Wernbo, CEO and co-owner of Focus Nordic.
With this partnership, Focus Nordic, Transcontinenta Group and Digit Access have taken an important step to further evolve the European photo & video market. For customers and consumers, this will improve the product and service offering in the local markets and for suppliers, it will add value to their brand through strenghtened local market expertise and brand visibility.
Growth and expansion through cooperation is in our genes. This unique cooperation with two strong partners who share the same vision about the fast-changing European photo & video market will inevitably lead to a better representation of our brands and a higher service level to our customers. We cannot wait to bring our three companies to the next level, summarizes Gerrie Geijssen, CEO and owner of Transcontinenta Group.
