Major Distribution Changes in New Zealand

Denon and Marantz, part of the Sound United stable of brands, have announced a new distribution agreement for New Zealand through Westan (NZ).

Westan whose headquarters are located in Melbourne also has an Auckland subsidiary and office, takes over the distribution from the outgoing distributor, BW Speakers / Online HiFi following the sad passing of General Manager, James Harding, on 27th January 2020. In Australia, Westan also distributes Polk Audio and Definitive Technology, brands also owned by Sound United.

The NZ distribution of Bowers & Wilkins which is also distributed by BW Speakers / Online HiFi in New Zealand is also uncertain, with local rumours suggesting the company may be looking at new distribution opportunities.

The news comes as Lenbrook, the Canadian parent company of Bluesound, NAD and PSB Speakers appointed Australian headquartered company, Connected Media, as its distributor in late February after being distributed by Wildash Audio Imports for many years.
