Phottix HeroPress Release:

Phottix, a leading global manufacturer of photo accessories, announced the official opening of its Distributor for UK and Ireland today, Phottix UK Ltd. The opening is being marked by a period of special introductory pricing from the Phottix UK website, and by promotional competitions in the press.

Phottix professional photo accessories have long been popular in the UK and Ireland, but prior to the establishment of the UK distribution partnership customers had to make their purchases from unofficial overseas websites. The new company, Phottix UK Ltd, will provide an official channel for Phottix quality photo accessories, and will greatly enhance customer service experience and product support.

The Phottix product range has items compatible with major makes of camera, including Canon and Nikon, and includes unique units like the Phottix Hero wireless camera remote control which operates over a video link, the Phottix GeoOne GPS camera geotagging unit, the Phottix O-Flash affordable ring light, the Phottix Nikos digital timer remote release, and the Phottix Cleon II wireless/wired remote shutter release, as well as comprehensive replacement accessories ranging from camera grips to batteries, flash accessories, filters and complete studio lighting systems.

Phottix UK Ltd will import and distribute Phottix products in the UK and Ireland from warehouse facilities in Northamptonshire. The new company will sell Phottix quality photo accessories direct to consumers via the new UK website www.phottix.net, and will also supply a growing nationwide reseller network, wholesale. It will raise awareness of the Phottix range of accessories through nationwide advertising campaigns in print and online media.

It will channel all UK and Ireland technical support, servicing and warranty assessment and repairs, and will provide marketing support, including promotional collateral and point of sale. Information about the products in the Phottix range will be disseminated widely and authoritatively via the www.phottix.net website.

Phottix UK Ltd has been set up in association with long established environmental services company Metafix (UK) Ltd, a supplier to major photo players including ASDA, Fujifilm, Klick Photo, Max Spielmann, Noritsu, Snappy Snaps, Tesco and Tetenal. It is directed by the same senior management team.

Nick Dean, Managing Director of Phottix UK Ltd said: "Our opening as the official UK distribution channel for Phottix professional photo accessories means Phottix customers now have a source they can trust, from which they can buy in confidence, in Sterling or Euros, secure in the knowledge that their purchases are fully covered by applicable consumer law and trading standards, and backed by the warranty, service and support of the Phottix corporation. Our association with the long established UK industry leader Metafix means people know they are dealing with a substantial, experienced and well known management team that isn’t going to disappear overnight. It’s a new dawn for Phottix in the UK and Ireland, and I look forward to enhancing the product experience of the company’s many loyal and enthusiastic customers. They’ve deserved this for a long time."
