New distributor partnership in Lithuania
Last week we were delighted to welcome a new distributor to our team. Meet Eglė Prieskienienė from UAB 'Dego', who is the brand new distributor of Percussion Play Outdoor Musical Instruments in Lithuania.
Visiting our workshop last week, Eglė met the whole team and was introduced to the full range of instruments. We want our distributors to be well-equipped with all the information and knowledge they need in order to provide the same level of excellent service we would provide to customers. Therefore, to enable Eglė a successful start she received some pretty intensive product training over the two day visit.
We wish her and the team at UAB 'Dego' the best success!
