After more than three decades of a successful partnership, Suunto and Aqua Lung are announcing the distribution cooperation for Suunto dive computers in Australia and New Zealand will end June 30, 2016. The current distribution arrangement, including sales and warranty service, will continue to be managed by Aqua Lung until the end of the term.
”After many successful years together our strategies had evolved differently and we both felt it is best to go separate ways. We would like to thank Aqua Lung for the long history of successful cooperation”, comments Suunto CEO Mikko Moilanen.
The distribution change will have no effect on consumers and Suunto and Aqua Lung are both committed to their customer service responsibilities, aiming to maintain the same high level of service throughout the transition period.
Detailed information about the new distribution arrangement will follow. The new distributor will handle all enquiries regarding Suunto dealerships in their respective market, for general Suunto information please see contact details below.
