Accessories specialist Bigben Interactive and its UK distributor Venom will end their distribution agreement next month.
Venom will now focus on expanding its own-brand and licensed game and mobile phone accessories, whilst Bigben will release its range of products directly. The distribution agreement will come to an end on Wednesday, February 3rd.
“Venom has been a great partner for us over the last four years and we thank them for all of their hard work and commitment in bringing our products to market”, said Bigben chairman Alain Falc.
“We wish them every success for 2010 and beyond.”
Venom’s commercial director Simon Dawson added:
“With the help of Bigben products we have managed to grow our business by 500 per cent in the past three years.
“We feel our future as a supplier to the gaming industry is now best secured by continuing to expand our own brand. While our partnership with Bigben has served us both well, it is now important for each of us to concentrate on promoting our own respective businesses.”
Bigben Interactive is based in Lesquin, France and has been a big success in mainland Europe. The manufacturer’s range of peripherals includes official licensed DS accessories, and the company also distributes video games in European territories.
