Samson to Transfer
Zoom Distribution

Samson Technologies will turn over the U.S. distribution of all Zoom products to the newly developed Zoom North America on December 31, 2013.

Zoom North America has been formed to distribute future product from the Zoom Corporation, which based in Japan, in the United States, starting with the H6 Handy Recorder.

“I decided to establish Zoom North America in order to develop a stronger relationship with our U.S. customers,” said Masahiro Iijima, Zoom Corporation founder and CEO. “Our goal is to stay in constant contact with Zoom dealers for feedback and advice, thus continually improving our products and service.”

Samson and Zoom’s 20-year distribution relationship will end on good terms.

“Samson will work hard to make sure the transition will go as smoothly as possible for our customers,” said Jack Knight, president of Samson Technologies.

“Samson will now be able to focus all of its energy on global marketing and new product development for our world-renowned Samson and Hartke brands,” said David Hakim, vice president of Samson Technologies.;
