Italgem Steel Group has been named the Canadian distributor for Hot Diamonds and Emozioni.
The lines were previously distributed by Martin Ross Group, which announced in May it would no longer distribute product lines manufactured outside Canada.
“Martin Ross sales agents will continue to represent the lines through Italgem Steel Group,” says Sam Mamane, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Italgem Steel Group. “Italgem will continue to develop the brands and increase the number of retailers within Canada.”
According to Mamane, Martin Ross president and chief operations officer (COO) Cameron Gillies referred Italgem to the London-based company for its well-established distribution channel.
“We’d like to thank Cameron and his staff at Martin Ross Group for their excellent work developing the Hot Diamonds and Emozioni brands in Canada over the past 24 months, and for the introduction to Sam,” said Paul Collard, international accounts manager for Hot Diamonds Group.
“We look forward to working closely with the Italgem Steel Group and the existing sales agents to ensure both our brands continue to grow in the Canadian marketplace, especially with our Emozioni wrist wear collection coming to market in the next few months.”
