As you might imagine, I’ve met a lot of industry people in the last 15 years. And one of the best parts of what I do is to connect good people so that they may go on to do good things together. And this has definitely been the case with Humpter stands. Our Ray is based in Poland, and so are Humpter (check Ray’s review here). Ray asked me if I knew of anyone in the UK who might want to take on Humpter as a brand for distribution. “Yes I do” I replied, and now it means that Monacor is now the official UK distributor of Humpter stands, effectively becoming Humpter UK.
This makes me very happy — not only because I’ve been able to help out friends, but mainly because it means that UK DJs get a lot more choices in stands than they do now. And choice is good, especially when there is precious little.
Even though I’ve pretty much told the whole story, there’s a press release too:
Monacor UK Ltd appointed exclusive UK
distributor of humpter® DJ consoles
Monacor UK Ltd, the UK subsidiary of German company Monacor International GMbH are pleased to announce an exclusive distribution partnership with humpter® to supply the UK and Irish markets.

What the press release doesn’t tell you is that Humpter UK will be appearing at the reborn BPM Show in October, along with a heap of other brands. I’ll be writing a story to tell you all about that this week. Probably.
