Ash goes to ashes

il_570xN.386643874_phvgSunderland-based Ash Distribution is being shut down by its parent company.

Iain Elliott – CEO of Ash’s parent company Canford Audio – said that “the activities of our Ash Distribution Business Unit no longer fit within the core business strategy of the company” and that it is shifting resources to the main Canford business.

The distributor has been in operation since 1997 and will close its doors on Wednesday 28 February 2018.

Elliott confirmed that Ash’s website will remain open for some time after the end of the month, to process orders in the “Ash Web-Only Closing Down Sale” until all stocks are cleared.

Existing customers will keep their account facilities and “will be transferred over to Canford’s product range, with the same credit terms that are in place”.

In addition, all existing contract and warranties with Ash Distribution will be honoured by Canford Audio.

Elliott added: “I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you for your loyal custom in the past and sincerely hope you will continue to trade with Canford for many years to come.”
