The Trust Network cracks the USA and Canada for Octopus ukuleles


“I have no doubt that your extensive analysis, professionalism, and dedication to our project has led to them coming on board with both brands”, said John Hughes-Chamberlain, Managing Director of Frederick Hyde Ltd, owner of Octopus ukuleles, when referring to the fact that the American distributor established for the brand by the Trust Network also took on distribution of the Company’s Slap Djembe product range.  The FCLs resulting from the Trust Network's engagement arrive this season when the launch of the Octopus and Slap Djembe brands will begin.


The distributor, Panyard, are specialists in the North American educational market, with dealer networks across the majors and independent online and bricks and mortar outlets.  Their desire for diversification and growth was perfectly met by Octopus’ wide appeal in both schools and the wider mainstream MI markets. 


Satisfying such mutual ambitions of Panyard’s plan for growth and Frederick Hyde wanting to take its next step in establishing Octopus as a global brand by entering the American market, can be a great long-term driver of robust year-on-year sales growth between brands and their distributors.  As seen in the last paragraph here in About Us, this is something the Trust Network very much looks for when doing its work of putting suitable distributors in place for clients.
