Fusion said it gave its second annual Europe, Middle East and Africa region Distributor of the Year Award to ProNav for outstanding distribution of Fusion’s marine entertainment products in Norway.

The award was presented in November at the METS Trade Show in Amsterdam.

“This award was never designed to purely recognize sales growth, although we certainly have had a great 2016 in Norway,” Fusion Entertainment general manager Chris Baird said in a statement.

“The Fusion EMEA Distributor of the Year Award celebrates those who epitomize our mentality in all aspects of their business, such as outstanding technical knowledge and product support, superior customer service and excellence in logistics.”

“We are really pleased to see our hard work this year recognized in such a way,” ProNav AS managing director John Hestnes said. “The demand for marine audio is growing every year, and with Fusion we can always be confident that our customers will have a good experience with their purchase. When challenges do inevitably arise, we know that Fusion is always ready to listen and is quick to respond with whatever support we need. ProNav and Fusion both have a customer-first approach, which has been a successful platform to sustain our growth in 2016.”

“Fusion and ProNav have had a close relationship for a long time, and as a distributor they have supported us very well, year after year,” Baird said. “This year, in particular, ProNav has taken on industry-specific challenges such as the discontinuation of the AM/FM radio service in Norway and managed to work with us to turn this into a positive event that has not only strengthened our business in Scandinavia, but also supported both new and existing end users above and beyond their expectations.”
