‘the partner network was outstanding’
‘help us grow from trading in 5 countries to more than 20"
When we launched TrackR there was already a dominant player in the category. We knew why our product was better than the competition and we needed to secure retail placements to help us to convey this to the consumer. Our objective was clear – to open new markets and scale quickly ensuring we could invest in retail as we grew. Unlock EMEA leveraged their relationships to help us grow from trading in 5 countries to more than 20 over the course of 12 months.
‘I would work with them again in a heartbeat’
As our company was adding EMEA distribution as part of our growth plan, I spent quite a bit of time studying best practices, talking to other brands as to what they found successful, and even met with several potential distributors in the region. I was introduced to Unlock EMEA and quickly realized that they could be a great resource for our small company. I have nothing but positive comments for what Unlock EMEA was able to do for us as we expanded to over 22 countries in our first year. Their integrity and deep experience are unmatched. It truly was a pleasure doing business with them, and I would work with them again in a heartbeat.

‘we have seen sales double year over year’
‘Over the past 3 years that we have been working with Unlock, Nomad has seen sales double in Europe, year over year. Although this is incredible growth, we are most grateful for recommendations for key partners and adaptive strategy that meets the demand of varying markets. Their knowledge and breadth of the CE and accessories industry in EMEA is truly unmatched’
Sofia Silva: Wholesale Director
‘the team is super well connected and vastly experienced’
We partnered with Unlock EMEA in January 2015 in order to establish our sales channels in Europe and the Middle East. The partnership lasted two years and it was the perfect incubator. From initial discussion, the Unlock team devised a full sales strategy that suited our requirements, which were to go narrow and deep with top retailers and distributors in priority countries. Unlock EMEA also helped us with our online strategy and laid a fantastic foundation for years of growth. The team is super well connected and vastly experienced.

’allowed me to benefit from the expertise of their whole team"
BleepBleeps creates cute connected gadgets that make parenting easier. When I started the business I knew at some point I would need some help with sales. Whilst I could have recruited a salesperson I knew this would be both onerous and expensive. Unlock EMEA’s solution was cost effective, flexible and allowed me to benefit from the expertise of their whole team.
‘their knowledge and relationships across the region are second to none’
As an international brand, securing a presence in EMEA was a key part of our strategy. Partnering with Unlock EMEA has allowed us to accelerate penetration in all major European markets that otherwise would have taken us considerable time and investment. Their knowledge and relationships across the region are second to none.
Nick Smith: Co-CEO & Founder
‘these guys are pros and really know what they are doing’
As a start up brand with a connected musical instrument product, we recognised that partnering with a company like Unlock EMEA was paramount to our success in retail in an emerging product category. We thought about an internal hire, but for where we are at as a business, bringing the wrong person could be a fatal mistake. Unlock has opened retail accounts for us in a very short period of time, even managing to secure Q4 business – despite starting very late into Q3 – very cool. These guys are pros and really know what they are doing.
Jérôme Dron: Founder & CEO
‘this success would not have been possible without the efforts and expertise of the Unlock EMEA team’
Nura has a very innovative product in a competitive category, where big brands dominate. While we have considerable technical and marketing expertise, we needed help finding the right retail and distribution partners. Unlock EMEA is our local representative, helping us to launch in the best retail stores in the EMEA region. Although the first few months were hard work for everyone involved we are now seeing significant success in retail. This success would not have been possible without the efforts and expertise of the Unlock EMEA team. We look forward to a long partnership with Unlock EMEA.
Jason Knickerbocker: VP of Sales
