Plum, the creator of the first fully-automated appliance for wine, recently announced the expansion of its distribution network. Partnering with Eastern Marketing, Maple Distributing, and Pinnacle Sales Group will position Plum for increased widespread distribution in the US markets beginning May 2020.
“We are proud to announce the expansion of Plum’s distribution network with three exceptional partners – Eastern Marketing, Maple Distributing, and Pinnacle Sales Group,” said Andreas Hansen, Global President of Plum in a statement. “Each of them demonstrates consistent and reliable sales and service support which will be crucial in our next phase of growth, and we are thrilled to have them as our distribution partners.”
Founded in 1986, Eastern Marketing is the largest family-owned wholesale distributor of luxury appliances in the US. Headquartered in Roseland, New Jersey, Eastern currently distributes lines which include refrigeration and undercounter wine cellars to a network of over 600 independent dealers, making Plum a natural fit.
“We see this as the next must-have in luxury appliances and are excited to be working with the Plum team,” said Craig Friedman, CEO of Eastern Marketing in a statement. “The synergy with our existing product lines and distribution channels make Plum a great pairing.”
Also joining the Plum distribution network is Maple Distributing. Since its beginnings in 2016 by founders with over 65 cumulative years of distribution experience, Maple has become one of the fastest growing luxury appliance distributors in the US known for the selective premium appliance brands they represent and will cover the central region.
“Plum’s sophisticated technology and user-friendliness is the ultimate combination in a luxury appliance, and we at Maple Distributing are proud to have forged a partnership with such a forward-thinking brand,” Mark Klein, President of Maple Distributing, said in a statement. Klein added, “We work with top appliance brands in the business and welcome Plum to the Maple Distributing family.”
Pinnacle Sales Group joins Plum’s distribution network to cover Plum’s Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest markets. Pinnacle – a luxury appliance, plumbing and outdoor kitchen distributor — caters to the Decorative Plumbing, Premium Appliances and the Outdoor Living segments of the upscale building and remodeling industry. They have partnered with a select group of innovative manufacturers to provide a comprehensive range of products, services, training and support to all levels of the sales channel.
“Plum is an innovative premium appliance that encompasses the type of product our company brings to the luxury building and remodeling industry,” said Ron Avery, CEO of Pinnacle Sales Group in a statement. “We are confident that this is a strong collaboration and are excited to partner with Plum.”
Eastern Marketing, Maple Distributing, and Pinnacle Sales Group joins Mode Distributing (Western US), LUWA Luxury (US Pacific Northwest and Canada) as well as La Cuisine International (Latin America and Caribbean) and Grupo IESA (Mexico) in Plum’s distribution network.
