Stentor takes on Jupiter
Stentor has announced it is taking on distribution of the brass and woodwind brands Jupiter and XO for the UK and ROI. The brands, previously handled by Korg, will come under the Stentor umbrella from 1st July.,
In a statement Stentor says: ‘On behalf of K.H.S. the general European distributor QS-MUSIC has now announced the transition of distribution for Jupiter and XO to Stentor Music Co. Ltd. This decision happened in agreement with all related parties.
Korg UK Managing Director Rob Castle commented: ‘Korg UK have been increasingly focusing on our premium brands in our three core areas of expertise: Hi-Tech (Korg), guitars (Vox and Takamine) and percussion (Mapex, Vic Firth and Paiste). Jupiter and XO need to be part of a portfolio of education and orchestral instruments. The move to Stentor makes perfect sense. We have a long history with KHS and Jupiter and we want to see the brand do well.’
Stentor has brass and woodwind experience stretching back some years, and playes a leading role in educational supply, so has the facilities to handle the new acquisitions and confirmed that it will not immediately be adding new staff to handle the lines, though it expects to grow the brands as they develop the market.
‘Stentor is proud to be representing Jupiter and XO wind instruments in the UK and Republic of Ireland. It is an exciting addition to the many well-known brands we distribute. We look forward to offering our outstanding sales and service support to Jupiter and XO instruments, says Stentor’s Marketing Director, Liz Wilkes.
