BCW eyes distributor contracts


Bluechipworld (BCW) is in discussions with large distributors about expanding the company out into other global markets following positive sales and take up of its products in the UK.

Since the Bluetooth product manufacturer launched last July, it has seen its VX-1 mini mobile go on sale at Tesco at the start of December and sell 10,000 units in the two weeks leading up to Christmas. Two retailers having shown an interest in stocking the VX-4 while a web retailer has asked about the VX-6. It said that interest for the VX-3 and VX-5 has also been high.

BCW has agreements with Data Select and Kondor in the UK but has been in discussions with other distributors that have a global reach in order to penetrate more markets.

BCW managing director Simon Hassell said: “Our agreements with Data Select and Kondor have been very beneficial for us in the UK and we have gained many customers here but these two distributors aren’t going to be able to give us a global reach. We’re in discussions with a number of distributors around the world as we look to target more global markets.”
