JL Audio in the US has chosen Seawide Distribution as its sole domestic distributor of Clarion Marine audio products for the 2019 calendar year.
The news follows a recent announcement that JL Audio has entered into an exclusive, long-term agreement to license the Clarion brand and oversee marketing and sales of its line of marine audio products in the US and other key marine audio markets.
“Part of our realignment strategy for Clarion Marine branded products is streamlining distribution to focus on key retailers, which will strengthen brand and distribution integrity,” says Ed Meenan, account manager at JL Audio. “Working with Seawide allows us to tap into an impressive roster of brick and mortar retail partners that cater to marine customers.”
According to Seawide president Keith Wansley, JL chose the company because of its “exceptional customer service” and ability to ship nationwide from four warehouses.
“We have a highly trained and reputable inside and outside sales force covering the key marine markets,” says Wansley. “With an average of two days ground shipping for most locations, we are poised to deliver Clarion’s modern, innovative marine audio product designs faster and more efficiently than the competition.”
In addition to the 80 other brands Seawide carries, distribution centres in the US are now fully stocked with Clarion Marine audio products.
