New Age Electronics, a leading distributor of consumer electronics and gaming products and services and a division of SYNNEX Corporation (NYSE: SNX), announced today that it has signed an agreement with RAYCOP, a leading consumer health product manufacturer, to distribute its top-selling allergen vacuums to the North American retail channel. The agreement expands New Age Electronics’ home appliance offering and makes the RAYCOP RS2 and RAYCOP LITE products available to its network of retail customers. In Canada, RAYCOP is available through SYNNEX Canada Limited’s consumer electronics group. In addition, the agreement has applications in the commercial channel in areas such as hospitality in both the US and Canada.
“We are pleased to bring Japan’s leading line of allergen vacuums to North America through our agreement with RAYCOP,” said Fred Towns, President, New Age Electronics. “RAYCOP’s products ultimately help people lead healthier lives by creating a cleaner home environment, eliminating allergens, and providing an overall improved quality of life. The agreement allows retailers to add a new alternative to regular vacuums that meets the needs of consumers looking to buy high-quality cleaning products for the home.”
RAYCOP combines leading technology and innovative design, delivering a unique product set that easily integrates into the consumer lifestyle. The product line is especially relevant to the millions of adults and children susceptible to common allergies and other respiratory disorders. RAYCOP allergen vacuums use patented RayClean Technology to remove allergens from fabric surfaces three times more effectively than other brand-leading vacuums. With a dual-filtration system incorporating a high-efficiency particulate air filter, ultraviolet light, optimized suction and pulsating pads, RAYCOP eliminates most common bacteria and viruses, as well as pollen and allergens produced by dust mites.
“Our team is excited to work with New Age Electronics to significantly expand our global footprint while making RAYCOP products more widely available to North American consumers,” said Hirobumi Suzuki, CEO, RAYCOP North America. “Following the momentous success among our Asian customer base, we are confident that people across the US and Canada – especially those who suffer from allergies – will find great value in making their homes cleaner and healthier with the RAYCOP product line.”
New Age Electronics’ agreement with RAYCOP comes in addition to the manufacturer’s relationship with SYNNEX Infotec Japan, which began in 2011.
