Fane takes the Concorde into China
CHINA: The Concorde Group has been appointed to exclusively distribute Fane International’s pro audio products in China. The appointment was made official at a signing ceremony held jointly by both companies at the Concorde Group offices. In attendance from the Concorde Group was general manager Hu Yuanya and president Fang Xue Xia, together with Fane International’s former chairman Arthur Barnes, technical director Mark Oldroyd and business development manager Asia Pacific, Jean Wong. The companies introduced themselves and their respective histories before Mr Barnes presented a distribution certificate to Mr Hu.
‘We respect Fane’s technical development abilities,’ enthused Mr Hu. ‘Their speaker drivers have been sold in the Chinese market for many years and most of the domestic speaker brands are using their drivers, so the products fit well with our market. Fane’s complete speaker systems have never been sold in Mainland China. With our more than 20 years of experience in the entertainment market, we believe we can open this market up very soon.’
'We’ve never wanted to sell our products in China until we’d found the correct partner,’ offered Mr Barnes. ‘They approached us to see if we would be interested in working with them, have had their own systems for many years and have got great knowledge of the marketplace.’
