Furrion Names Stampede Exclusive North American Mobile Living Market Distribution Partner

AMHERST, NEW YORK, December 2, 2019 — Stampede, the global leader in value-added consumer and professional AV distribution, today announced it has been appointed to serve as the exclusive North American mobile living market (RV and Yacht) distribution partner of Furrion, a global leader of innovative products and solutions. At the same time, Stampede will serve as a distribution partner in the North American consumer electronics channel.

According to Stampede President & CEO Kevin Kelly, the appointment represents the start of a long-term strategic partnership between the two companies to accelerate the growth and expansion of the Furrion mobile living product line in North America and, later, in Europe and Australia.

“Furrion offers a wide range of innovative consumer products that include audiovisual electronics, solar energy solutions and kitchen appliances and Stampede has the demonstrated ability to drive the rapid growth of Furrion’s innovative line of lifestyle products. We look forward to playing a critically important role in substantially growing Furrion in the mobile living market while leveraging their technology leadership and expanding their reach into the broader, mainstream consumer lifestyle market,” Kelly emphasized.

According to Kelly, Stampede has opened a new sales office and state-of-the-art warehouse in South Bend, Indiana, from which it can serve all of the OEM RV manufacturers that are based in nearby Elkhart, Indiana, the RV capital of the world.

Commenting on the appointment, Furrion Founder & CEO Aaron Fidler said, “The appointment of Stampede marks a significant expansion of our long-term sales and market development programs. We have worked hard to design, engineer and manufacture a cutting-edge line of next generation consumer products that offer new value to customers in both the traditional recreational vehicle and yacht market and beyond. Stampede’s business development team and reseller network are going to take these new products to the broadest range of markets.”

Serving more than 20,000 resellers across North America, Stampede is part of Exertis, the technology division of DCC plc, a £14.3 billion revenue, London Stock Exchange listed (LSE) international sales, marketing and support services group that employs 11,000 people in four divisions operating in 17 countries. As part of Exertis, Stampede has unprecedented access to a global marketplace and, as such, offers its partners greater reach and scale.

Furrion’s new consumer product lines combine the innovation that Furrion is known for as a leader in the RV and Marine sectors with a design that is more consumer lifestyle focused. The Stampede partnership enables Furrion to increase its production volume and leverage new technologies for this marketplace. Furrion’s recent expansion into the European market will be further strengthened by its relationship with Stampede and Exertis.
