Elkridge, MD (August 1, 2005) – Palisades Entertainment is proud to announce that effective immediately, Blister Direct will serve as the exclusive distributor for Palisades products in Japan. The deal includes all products that Palisades manufactures – including Factory X replicas – provided, of course, that the licensing agreement allows for Japanese distribution.
“Blister Direct has been awarded Palisades’ “International Wholesale Distribution Partner’ award for the past two years running,” commented Palisades President & CEO, Michael Horn, “… and with good reason. Blister is willing to go above and beyond, to put in the extra effort to sell product, and has done much to increase Palisades’ visibility in Japan. We expect this exclusive partnership to be beneficial to both parties.”
Adds Blister Vice President Franck Dubois, “Over the past three years, we have developed a phenomenal working relationship with Palisades. [Their products] are perfect for this market, and we are excited about the opportunities that have been presented, now that Blister will exclusively handle distribution.”
The deal was finalized last week in Tokyo, where Blister represented the entire Palisades line at the Tokyo Toy Fair. For more information on Blister Direct, please visit www.blister.jp
