Proper Announce Continental Partnerships to Offer One-stop European Distribution
We’re delighted to announce several new deals with our European partners H’Art Musik Vertrieb and Bertus Distribution which will enable us to consolidate our European export and distribution network, resulting in major efficiencies without compromising our Europe wide reach.
The deals, and another recent arrangement with Border Music, enable us to offer a one-stop-shop solution for the pan-European marketing and distribution of physical music products. H’Art will handle distribution in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, Bertus in Benelux, France, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia, and Border in Scandinavia. Proper, of course, will continue to handle UK distribution of our clients releases directly.
Proper MD Drew Hill says about the new partnerships “We’re delighted to be further enhancing our long established relationships with H’Art and Bertus. Both their reputations in Europe are outstanding, and by consolidating our international network we’re now able to bring improved efficiencies and a consolidated sales strategy to our labels and artists. Together with our deal with Border, this partnership introduces a much needed, truly independent, pan-European distribution option to the business”.
Bertus’ managing director Jan van Ditmarsch noted: “We’re excited to enter into this new partnership with Proper. A range of good and solid products will strengthen the position of Bertus and H’Art, and at the same time will give Proper an organised and effective gateway into Europe”.
