Yepzon to co-operate with ALSO – a massive distribution channel opens for the Finnish invention

Yepzon, a developer of wearable technologies and smart clothing applications, has entered into a contract regarding the distribution of its products with ALSO Finland Oy, the largest IT wholesaler in Finland.

The wearable positioning device based on the Yepzon™ safety technology helps to locate a missing person from the next room or across the world. The technology combines different positioning technologies, mobile devices and a new kind of cloud service. ALSO Finland now helps bring Yepzon products to retailers and thus to consumers.

The distribution agreement between Yepzon and ALSO will guarantee an extensive availability of Yepzons for the coming Christmas season. Yepzon’s production in Finland will be launched in October.

“ALSO has high expertise and strong name in the wholesale of consumer electronics and mobile devices. Through their channels, we will be able to bring Yepzons to several segments fast,” rejoices Otto Linna, the founder of Yepzon when describing the newly established co-operation.

Strong international demand

Yepzon has sparked a lot of interest in Europe, the United States and Russia. These will be the main early stage export markets for Yepzon.

“The ALSO Group operates in 12 European countries and the parties are now preparing to extend their co-operation to other ALSO countries too,” says Pasi Salokannel, Head of Consumer Electronics for ALSO Finland.
