MONTVALE, N.J., Sept. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharp Home Electronics Company of America today announced that BrandSource would begin offering SHCA's full line of kitchen appliances through locally-owned members stores starting this Fall.
"Sharp's business relationship with BrandSource represents an advantageous opportunity to further our reach into local communities and build long-lasting customer relationships, bringing us closer to fulfilling our commitment to Simply Better Living," said Peter Weedfald, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Sharp Electronics Marketing Company of America.
BrandSource works closely with its members, operating in more than 4,500 locally-owned appliance, electronics, bedding, home furnishing and floor covering stores across the United States and Canada. This business relationship will see Sharp and BrandSource working side-by-side to provide thousands of independent business owners with industry-leading products featuring cutting-edge technology.
Sharp's patented built-in Microwave DrawerTM Ovens, Countertop Microwave Ovens, and Over-the-Range Microwave Ovens will be available in a range of sizes, wattages, and finishes. In addition, SHCA's SuperSteam+, 3-in-1 Oven and Induction Cooktops also join the line of available appliances, as well as European Convection Wall Ovens, which add a modern and elegant touch to any kitchen.1
