River Solutions Group & Falcon Technologies International

River Pro Audio Named Sole Falcon Distributor For UK & Ireland

London, UK, February 1st 2018 – Optical Media storage specialist River Pro Audio has announced the formation of a key partnership with Falcon Technologies International (FTI) which will see it support the FTI’s new worldwide strategy to increase sales and distribution via closer cooperation with the key players in the global optical media industry.

FTI’s new strategy is a pro-active step towards adapting to the shifting market dynamics of the optical media industry, which have evolved in the last 2 years towards consolidation into a smaller number of larger market players within all major territories globally.

In Europe, FTI has entered into a master distribution agreement with River Pro Audio to cover UK and Ireland. The specialist knowledge, existing distribution network and the long-standing relationship each partner currently enjoys with FTI was a key factor in River Pro Audio’s selection as partners.

FTI CEO Michael Gutowski said: “River Pro Audio shares our professional focus, attitude and dedication to the high quality optical media market. We are exceptionally pleased to announce their exclusive distributor status in the UK and Ireland; these closer ties will ensure FTI’s products are at the top of the scale as regards quality and reliability.”

RPA MD Joel Monger said: “We are absolutely delighted with FTI distribution in the UK and Ireland. Myself and my team will ensure that Falcon Media products enjoy a leading market position as befits one of the most reliable and highest quality optical media manufacturers in the world. With our combined, unparalleled expertise in the optical media field, knowledge of the optical media market in the UK and Ireland and distribution of complimentary products, we’re confident Falcon will continue to increase its market share and solidify its status as the number one media in the world.”

Falcon Media – The World’s Quality Leader In Optical Media

Nearly 2 years on from Taiyo Yuden’s departure from the optical media world, high-quality A-Grade, CD, DVD and BDR media is still very much in demand. However, in lieu of TY, the majority of that high quality market has moved to Falcon Technologies International (FTI).

For those of you who haven’t been keeping up to date; FTI have cemented themselves as one of the highest quality manufacturers of optical media in the world and through some excellent factory scaling have managed to fill the large gap in the market Taiyo Yuden left.

Founded back in 2004, relatively late in the optical media industry, FTI has grown rapidly, in part due to their modern facilities and quality aim; but also due to the knowledge of the experienced industry leaders that founded the company.

It’s no wonder that in TY’s absence, Falcon Media Professional and Archival sales have grown exponentially. Even at Taiyo Yuden’s peak FTI were considered their main competitor in terms of quality. With improvements in both specification, technology and manufacturing processes over the years they’ve even surpassed the legacy left behind by Taiyo Yuden.

From mastering facilities, duplication houses and archival specialists; companies the world over trust and rely on Falcon Media Professional and Archival products every day to secure their assets, distribute their products and ensure the highest possible quality is maintained.

Alongside our Falcon Media Professional and Archival products, River Media and ACU-Disc products, we hold the largest and most diverse stock in Europe of optical media, casing, professional duplication and publishing equipment and consumables – all at the very best pricing.

RPA Official Falcon Media Partners

River Pro Audio have always prided themselves on the quality, consistency and innovation of the products they stock and services they deliver. Naturally, championing a manufacturer who shares those ideals (and delivers on them!) was an easy decision to make.

Partnering with Falcon Media to become the official distributor and Europe’s largest stockist was an easy decision to make. With our core customer base being interested in superior quality, A-Grade media, Archival media and accepting of all but the most reliable media, the alignment of our company values made our partnership inevitable.

With Taiyo Yuden media no longer manufactured, or available, Falcon Media is one of only a handful of media that can offer the same quality and reliability. The other two being ACU-Disc and River-Media.
