Barcelona, Spain, November 22, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- AGS Tie Solution, owner and designer of the luxury brand Pietro Baldini is sailing against the tide of the economic downturn, through its deliberate global expansion into international markets, and is proactively seeking distribution and reselling channel partners. In an industry where many brands are filing for bankruptcy, AGS Tie Solution is building up its current international network of value added reselling partners to bolster its expansion in answering the increase in international demand for exclusive accessories such as neckties, shawls, scarves and pashminas. AGS Tie Solution is focusing on markets such as Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, Russia and the UK, where current marketing efforts are underway. Other markets are not disregarded and are considered for near future expansion. The AGS expansion follows recent positive trends in the luxury market for the coming years.
Consulting firm Bain & Company, forecasts an overall increase in the luxury goods industry with 4,2% by the end of 2011, with a sharp upward growth curve beginning in the later part of 2010. Italian based luxury association, Altagamma, estimates the Asian luxury market to increase by 12% for the whole year, and both Europe by 4%, and the USA by 8% for the second half of 2010.* However, it is not only the international expansion of AGS Tie Solution´s luxury brand - Pietro Baldini - that is projected to thrive, the company´s traditional B2B product line of superior quality customization and personalization accessory textiles for corporate business is also making a foray into new markets.
Through a wide array of valued services for companies, AGS Tie Solution enables clients to customize products with their own corporate identity, create their own brand label, or purchase exclusive Pietro Baldini luxury products for resale. These options empower potential reselling partners to introduce a new and innovative trade concept in their respective countries. "These exclusive opportunities stress the concept of turning to innovation in a weakened economy in order to build something new, as all crises signify a chance to grow. Select distributors and resellers now have prime opportunities to market both designer luxury goods premier to their country, as well as strategically install themselves as high class accessory suppliers and enablers of private label goods for large businesses, or for resale," states Antonio G. Sanchéz, CEO of AGS Tie Solution. The two-pronged approach intends to give distribution partners business opportunities to open new channels and increase turnover by creating and selling their own private label, and benefiting from the growing Pietro Baldini brand image.
Among sought partnerships are distributors, wholesalers, retailers, online luxury shops, and other resellers that possess established networks and mature alliances positioned for "rebound" opportunities in both economically challenged and thriving markets. Select reselling partners will receive a special "Get to Know" offer from the Pietro Baldini Neckwear and Femme luxury lines. Resellers interested in this offer should visit othe Pietro Baldini.com website, include a backslash, and add "resellers-get-to-know" or contact their sales department, at sales @ tiesolution.com for more details.
