Longarone, 31 August 2016 – De Rigo Vision embarks on a new chapter in its international expansion plan into Australia, following recent openings of branches in Germany, the Middle East and the announcement of the new De Rigo REM company in the US.
The new company, De Rigo Vision Australia, will be headquartered in New South Wales in the metropolitan area of Sydney giving the company a direct presence in the strongly developing market of Australasia. The branch will distribute the sunglasses and eyewear collections of the Group’s house and licensed brands. This new structure will support sales, assistance and post-sales in the area and will also be fine-tuned to meet customer requirements quickly and efficiently, whilst offering a wider range of products.
“Australia is one of the key markets for the consolidation of our company in Asia Pacific, one of the most dynamic economies in the area and one with incredible potential" explains Michele Aracri, Managing Director of De Rigo Vision S.p.A., who continues ”This investment is another step forward in the development of the De Rigo Group’s wholesale business”.
The opening of this branch will drive the expansion of De Rigo in the Asia Pacific and will help to strengthen the sales synergies with all other Group branches in the region. The regions of Japan, China and Hong Kong are currently directly managed by The De Rigo Group, whilst the Hong Kong site in particular acts as a sales hub for the entire network of distributors and is responsible for distributing the Group’s brands in the area.
