Since launching in the UK earlier this year, Emporia has added numerous partnerships
Emporia Telecom has announced a retail partnership with The Phone Co-op.
The partnership will see the retailer stock three of Emporia’s handsets which are the Smart S3, TOUCHsmart and Active.
Austrian-based Emporia specialise in senior handsets and launched in the UK earlier in the year.
The vendor has grown its partner list in this time, initially launching through Eurostar Global and Amazon.
Emporia has since struck partnerships with Scotts & Co, Hearing Direct, Mobile Phones Direct, Laptops Direct and most recently Techpoint Distribution.
Emporia UK and Ireland MD Chris Millington has called the latest partnership a significant milestone.
“This partnership is another recognisable milestone for emporia. Our strategy for the UK and Irish markets was to reach the wide audience group in many familiar ways that mirror our different consumers’ habits and platforms.
“To have such a credible organisation like The Phone Co-op retail our devices is another success since our European expansion and launching here at the start of 2020.”
The Phone Co-op chief operating officer Lizzie Hieron added: “Supporting older people in our local communities has never been so crucial with many people feeling isolated or lonely following months of shielding because of Covid-19 and we hope that our new partnership with emporia will be a great help in keeping families and communities connected during these difficult times where face-to-face visits are unfortunately restricted”.
