SLM Distributes Suzuki in the Americas
St. Louis Music (SLM) recently became the exclusive distributor of the Nagoya Suzuki violin line in North, Central and South America. Effective immediately, all sales of the Japanese instruments throughout the Americas will be arranged through SLM.
"It was just last year when we secured the honor of distributing these fine instruments in the United States, so we are pleased to be further trusted to bring them to more players throughout the western hemisphere," said Jim Eaton, vice president of SLM. "Key is our ability to invest in inventory, and we have already made a substantial commitment in stocking Nagoya Suzuki products here in our St. Louis warehouse."
According to Eaton, the central shipping location; advanced logistics capabilities; and experience of the SLM management, sales staff and shop personnel influenced the decision.
"Our efforts to promote Suzuki string instruments is a major priority of St. Louis Music," Eaton said. "The quality and the name are well-known to educators everywhere, and we're pleased to do business with old friends."
