MixArt from Russia has been named Allen & Heath distributor of the year for 2002. The award is given each year to the distribution company which has done most to the support the brand and its customers in their territory. A special plaque was presented to the President of MixArt, Dmitriy Modin, during a dinner held for Allen & Heath's distribution team at Langans Coq D'Or restaurant on Old Brompton Road, London during the PLASA show 2002. MixArt are based in Moscow, with a satellite facility in St. Petersburg and plans for another in Siberia.
Allen & Heath's Sales & Marketing Director, Bob Goleniowski, explains why MixArt was chosen to receive the award: "Rather than just looking at overall sales figures, we consider criteria such as the way that the distributor looks after our customers, how well they communicate with us and how fully they get behind our full range of live sound, DJ and fixed installation products. We want to work with people who are as passionate as we are about our mixers. We have a very strong distribution network across the globe and there were several strong contenders for the award, but when I spoke to my team about it we unanimously agreed that Dmitriy and MixArt deserve recognition for the hard work and dedication they have demonstrated in building the profile and reputation of the brand in Russia."
