Sony DADC wins Ministry of Sound UK Distribution
A major five year deal sees the internationally renowned music label move to Sony DADC’s brand new Enfield distribution facility
London, 18 February 2013 – With over 50 million albums sold since it’s launch in 1991, Ministry of Sound houses a network of international record labels, administered from offices in London next to their world-famous nightclub. Building on a long-term manufacturing services relationship, Ministry of Sound has chosen Sony DADC for their distribution services.
The agreement, which will run until 2018, draws on Sony DADC’s expertise in pick, pack and ship; customer service, returns management and reverse logistics. Distribution operations will be handled out of Sony DADC’s new UK distribution centre in Enfield, North London and go live in mid February 2013.
As a testament to the scope and flexibility of the operational tasks Sony DADC can offer clients, it will also manage telesales on behalf of Ministry of Sound to UK independent record stores.
“As a major global brand, Ministry of Sound requires a reliable and flexible service provider, capable of future-proofing evolving industry strategies and able to react quickly to any and every market opportunity,” said Sigi Obermayr, Vice President Sales at Sony DADC. “We are proud that Ministry of Sound has selected us and we are looking forward to growing their business together.”
