WHY START AN IMPORT DISTRIBUTORSHIP?
On the world stage, Australia is a small market. Overseas manufacturers are keen to appoint distributors in the US and EU countries while Australia is a little further down the list. This means many products don’t make their way into our market straight away, and there are plenty of products that take a season or two to get to Australia. Early movers can beat retail stores by 6-18 months before the market catches on.
Learn how to test your product idea, then bring a product to market that your customers are asking for.
