In August 2016, Opal is setting up its new subsidiary’s base in Montreal at Lanctôt’s premises and is working closely with the company to develop its business in Canada. Lanctôt is a leading name in the industry, as a reputed distibutor and manufacturer of high-profile brands in the sport and optical fields. With 60 years of experience, Lanctôt was the ideal partner to take on the distribution of Opal products to Canadian opticians.
A new Opal Canada sales team starts work in late August, ready to go out and see opticians and optometrists throughout Quebec, Ontario and the Maritime Provinces.
Their mission is to present the two main areas of Opal’s product range:
- Children’s and teenagers’ licensed collections (OPAL LICENSING): Avengers, Disney Princess, Elevenparis, Little Elevenparis and Spider-Man.
- Exclusive collections at low prices (OPAL DIRECT): Owlet, Oblue, Proximo
- Exclusive collections (OPAL STUDIO): Henko and Lapo
Opal Canada’s new sales team is supported by their Lanctôt colleagues for all logistics purposes, while Opal’s marketing enables them to offer the sales tools best suited to customers’ needs.
