  • Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

    April 1, 2020

    To Our Valued Dealers,

    Our goal, as your value-added distributor, is to assist you in various ways to ensure your business success. This is a hard time for all of us, but we wanted to offer to help you in ways that we can.

    Our Experienced Team Can Help

    Many of you have halted operations and are working from home. While none of us are happy about the current situation, this may provide a unique opportunity to undergo some business planning for the coming year. We have a team of experienced territory sales managers willing to share their expertise to help you in creating your business plans. We hope you won’t hesitate to contact your sales manager for consultation and assistance over the phone or by email. They are there to help.

    Marketing Support/CO-OP Planning

    As a value-added distributor, we offer the support of a full-service marketing firm with a team of experts who can answer any questions related to marketing and communications. This consultation is at no cost to you. We hope you will contact our Inside Sales team, who can put you in touch with their services. At the very least, they can provide some consultation over the phone related to concerns that you might have. As it relates to planning your marketing strategy, we posted this Marketing Corner blog as a resource in January and thought we would share with you now.

    Government Assistance

    We also wanted to let you know about this opportunity through the U.S. government. The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering loan assistance to small businesses within all U.S. states and territories. These low-interest loans can be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact. These loans come with a long-term repayment program, up to 30 years. For details, visit https://www.sba.gov/disaster-assistance/coronavirus-covid-19.

    We Are Working For You

    None of us ever imagined this would happen. We hope you continue to consider us a partner and resource. We are here to support you in every way that we can.

    Sincerely,
    Shawn Cabral
    General Manager

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

    March 23, 2020

    To Our Valued Partners,

    I am writing to let you know that Accent Distributing is fully operational and able to continue to support you in your film and business needs. We are enacting safety precautions to ensure that any risk to our partners and our employees has been mitigated as best as is possible.

    Toward protecting you and our employees, our Territory Managers are currently working from home rather than traveling on the road. While face-to-face visits will be limited, please know that regular communications are encouraged and will be maintained via telephone, text and email.

    Our Inside Sales Team remains in operation in both our Sarasota and Houston offices, and we are taking every precaution as it relates to proper hygiene and handling of orders. Our warehouse staff are wearing gloves and wiping surfaces to ensure that your shipments arrive safely. We are currently not experiencing any shipping delays.

    None of us could have predicted the impact the Coronavirus is having on our personal and business lives. As your business partner, we are here to support you in any way that we can. Working together, we’ll get through these challenging times and continue to thrive.

    Stay healthy and safe. Let us know how we can help.

    Sincerely,
    Shawn Cabral
    General Manager
