Renaissance signs five new brands in three months

30 Jun 10

Auckland-based Renaissance has said that, over the last three months, it’s secured the exclusive New Zealand distribution rights to five new product ranges.

Last week we reported that, while no update has been issued by the company since its Annual General Meeting in May, a number of sources had highlighted some troubling trends within the distributor to The Channel.

The five brands named today are Booq (laptop bags and backpacks), PowerStick (charging solutions), Cygnett (iPod accessories), Kanex (iAdapt display adapters) and Konnet (gaming accessories).

“We are committed to extending our range of accessories that perfectly complement the undeniable style of Apple’s products to ensure customers get the most from their favourite Apple device,” said Michele Harrington, General Manager – Peripherals.

All products are now available at Apple authorised resellers and retail chains across New Zealand, as well as at all MagnumMac and StudentIT stores.
