Philadelphia, PA — May 2, 2019 — Almo Corporation, the nation’s leading independent distributor of appliances, consumer electronics, Pro A/V equipment and housewares, today announced it has been named the exclusive U.S. distributor for NXR “Culinary” Series Ranges. As part of this new relationship, Almo is giving its independent retail dealers access to a competitively-priced, premier cooking range lineup. This offering will complement Almo’s established and industry-leading logistics services, marketing, and sales support capabilities intended to help their dealers grow and prosper.
According to Jack Halperin, senior vice president, Dealer Channel Division, Almo Corporation, “Many independent retailers report seeking quality, moderately-priced, profitable, step-up products to complement their current retail floor offerings. The NXR Culinary Series effectively fills that niche in the cooking segment.” He added, “This NXR Series is only available through Almo – and sits perfectly on the dealers’ floors between currently available, traditional luxury and mass premium appliance cooking brands.”
“We chose to distribute this product only through Almo in the U.S. because of the company’s strong and proven track record of maintaining solid relationships with the nation’s independent dealers,” said Saban Chang, president for NXR. “Almo’s long withstanding track record of success in providing tangible, value added services to this important retail class of trade makes the relationship a great all-around fit that will undoubtedly benefit dealers today and in the long run.”
