Neocontrol Partners with Two Distributors
Orlando, Fla. (February 15, 2018) – As Neocontrol looks to expand its reach throughout the United States, it has signed two large distribution agreements, expected to bring more than $750,000 in revenue to the company over the next five years.
One deal brings Neocontrol’s products to the Nashville market with West End Lock and the other deal reaches into the Plano, Texas marketing through Universal Screens (US Motions).
Both companies will exclusively represent Neocontrol on their territories providing tech support and local inventory to their dealers.
“Having experienced distributors carrying Neocontrol’s products is an important step to consolidate the brand and provide better logistics and support to our customers nationwide,” says Andre Comitre, COO, Neocontrol. “Our plans for expansion was to find partners like this across the country and this is a great step in our company’s growth.”
Neocontrol was established in 2004 in Brazil and became a subsidiary of Somfy Group, a multinational corporation with a presence in over sixty countries, including the United States, and is rightly considered the world leader in tubular motors, and automation of home and building opening and closings in 2012. In 2016, the company moved its headquarters to Orlando as one of the UCF Business Incubation Program’s soft-landing clients, a program specifically designed for international companies looking to establish a foothold in the United States.
Through its distributors, Neocontrol provides complete home automation, including lighting, window treatments, audio and more. Having distributors in different states, specially consolidated companies like West End Lock and Universal Screens, is important to better support the dealers, have a decentralized inventory and being able to reach out to more customers and provide them with the opportunity to explore the smart home market.
Both Universal Screens and West End Lock will be utilizing Neocontrol’s products to enter the home automation market.
“We fully believe the smart home concept is one that is just beginning to take over the home improvement market,” Comitre says. “We’re at the forefront of this and plan on signing many more agreements like these over the next year.”
