Alcorn McBride, the leading manufacturer of control, audio and video equipment for the themed entertainment industry, has named the winners of its 2014 Distributor of the Year Award and Best Marketing Support Award. Bejing-based Wincomm Technology Development Co. Ltd. accepted Distributor of the Year honors, while Electori Co. Ltd. in Tokyo received the award for Best Marketing Support.
“We’re delighted to salute our distributors Wincomm and Electori for the terrific jobs they have done in building recognition and sales for Alcorn McBride products in Asia,” said Scott Harkless, Director of Sales at Alcorn McBride. “The themed entertainment industry is expanding at a phenomenal rate in Asia. Wincomn and Electori have really stepped up to the plate by providing amazing support for Alcorn McBride and our clients throughout the region.”
Harkless presented the Distributor of the Year Award to Wincomm president, Tony Chen. Competition for the award included all of the company’s international distributors. Harkless commented, “This year, Wincomn invested a great deal of effort in training staff from all eight of their regional offices to better serve Alcorn McBride customers. Their aggressive marketing campaign and roadshow events raised awareness of the product line and earned several high-profile projects throughout China, Hong Kong, and Macau.”
“It’s an honor to be chosen as Alcorn McBride’s Distributor of the Year,” said Chen. “With Alcorn McBride’s support, Wincomm has provided products to Wuhan Wanda Movie Theme Park and other major theme parks in the region.”
“Alcorn products are known for their high quality and good reputation, and Wincomm has 20 years experience in professional A/V distribution and installation,” Chen explained. “I hope our partnership can help more Chinese customers achieve success in projects involving A/V playback, lighting control and show control.”
Alcorn McBride’s Best Marketing Support Award was presented to Electori president, Takafumi (Ted) Hirakawa. Electori won the Distributor of the Year Award in 2014, and the marketing support honor recognizes the Japanese distributor for making outstanding efforts to market Alcorn McBride’s products through trade shows.
“We are honored to receive the Best Marketing Support Award following our Distributor of the Year Award last year,” says Mr. Hirakawa. “We continue to work closely with Alcorn McBride to raise the bar on our efforts to increase awareness, drive sales and grow our distribution of Alcorn McBride’s products. We extend our gratitude to everyone at Alcorn McBride for having chosen us for this award.”
