Williams AV announces a strategic partnership with Ampetronic Ltd. to become the exclusive distributor of its Assistive Listening and conferencing products in the U.K. marketplace. Effective May 1, 2020, resellers in the UK can source Williams AV products through local inventory and utilize the expertise of Ampetronic sales, design and service teams. In addition, Williams AV and Ampetronic are working to establish local logistics to service the Williams AV distribution channel throughout Europe. We anticipate having these logistics operational by July 1, 2020.
