Group One Ltd., the US distributor for Avolites and elektraLite lighting products, as well as DiGiCo, Calrec and other pro audio lines, has officially inked a US distribution agreement with Designed To Shine (DTS) Lighting, according to Jack Kelly, Group One President, and Paolo Albani, DTS Sales and Marketing Director.
As of October 1, the Farmingdale NY-based distributor is now handling all US (including Puerto Rico) sales and support activities for DTS. Reporting to Kelly, Avolites National Sales Manager Brad White and elektraLite National Sales Manager Tyler Wise are jointly tasked with spearheading Group One’s efforts with the DTS brand.
“DTS joined Group One on several Lighting Roadshow tours for Avolites and elektraLite this year, and the chemistry between our teams and brands made it obvious that we should be working together,” says Kelly. “Our team actually goes back 25 years with lighting products from Italy, and after investigating the market and DTS’ products over the past quarter, we’re very pleased to announce this new partnership.”
