Alcorn McBride, the leading manufacturer of control, audio and video equipment for the themed entertainment industry, has named Electori Co., Ltd. in Tokyo as the winner of its 2013 Distributor of the Year Award. Competitors for this first award from Alcorn McBride included all of the company's international distributors.
"Electori has been our distributor in Japan for three years and has done a terrific job. They bring a high level of technical capabilities as well as strong relationships with top clients, including Tokyo Disneyland and Universal Studios Japan, which have helped build and sustain our ties in Japan," says Larry Howard, Alcorn McBride Director of Sales.
Electori distributes the full range of Alcorn McBride products in the audio, video, control and lighting categories.
"It is a great honor to receive this award - we were quite surprised!" says Electori president Ted Hirakawa. "We believe that we were not merely evaluated by our business achievements but also by the attitude, stance and engagement of our sales, technical and marketing team. I'm very proud of that. I think the award will enhance the team's confidence and increase their motivation in the future."
Howard notes that as a specialty equipment company "before and after sales support is incredibly important" to Alcorn McBride. "Electori supplies technical expertise for our products across the board."
"It's an honor to distribute these products in Japan and to work with the great people at Alcorn McBride who are always so supportive of us," adds Hirakawa. "We plan to extend our distribution and sales promotion for Alcorn McBride in this market so we can justify our Distributor of the Year Award more than ever!"
Howard says that since Electori came on board as the Alcorn McBride distributor in Japan the company has experienced significant growth in the region. "International expansion is a big focus for us while we work to maintain our very positive domestic sales levels, too," he reports. "Solid Distributor partnerships are critical to our success."
