Core Brands has appointed Indigo Distribution as the exclusive distributor of its ELAN and Niles brands in the UK. The appointment, effective immediately, is in recognition for Indigo’s outstanding contribution to the double-digit growth in Ireland of ELAN’s control and automation products as well as Niles audio products. The announcement was made by Core Brands director of international sales, Simon Spears.
“Indigo, under the leadership of Matthew Booth, has generated an enormous increase in sales for both ELAN and Niles in Ireland,” Spears said. “Their understanding of the product lines, the needs of dealers, and the expectations of end-user residential and commercial customers make them the ideal choice to drive our long-term growth throughout the United Kingdom. They have earned this opportunity and we are confident that our UK dealers and installers will quickly come to recognize the professionalism and commitment to excellence that has made Indigo such an outstanding success throughout Ireland.”
Based in Bangor, Northern Ireland, Indigo Distribution is a trade-only high-value added provider of smart home automation, home theater, and AV solutions for both the residential and commercial markets. The Indigo team possesses a strong background in systems design and installation and, as a result, it brings a professional perspective to every project that helps dealers and installers to sell more effectively and profitably, while exceeding the expectations of all of their end-user customers. Indigo maintains a true state-of-the-art headquarters that features a warehouse/distribution facility, interactive training center, and demonstration showroom. What’s more, the entire headquarters is networked and controlled by an ELAN g! System.
“I am absolutely delighted to announce we have the exclusive distribution opportunity for ELAN and Niles products in the whole of the UK as well as Ireland. We are passionate about these brands and about providing incomparable customer service,” Indigo managing director Matthew Booth said. “My team at Indigo pride themselves on their advanced technical support, as well as their reputation for exceptional customer service. We truly understand the importance of top quality after-sales and technical support in this industry, as well as the importance of building strong relationships with our customers.”
The company regularly holds free training sessions for its customers, including multi-level ELAN g! training and comprehensive training for the Niles Auriel multi-room audio system. The comprehensive training schedule has proven hugely successful for Indigo in Ireland and the company will be expanding this training to the UK to support all Elan and Niles dealers.
Indigo and its dealers have been responsible for a number of major commercial installations over the last couple of years, including significant ELAN installations at the Saphyre Restaurant in Belfast, the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool, the Ponderosa Bar in Londonderry, and the Kris Turnbull Design Studio in Belfast — in addition to countless residential projects that include the home and practice facility of the world’s number one ranked golfer, Rory McIlroy.
