Company announcement no. 32-2023
October 16, 2023

Audientes A/S has entered into a distribution agreement in Japan with TD SYNNEX, a leading distributor and solutions aggregator in Japan, part of the global TD SYNNEX group. This agreement means that Audientes will now collaborate with TD SYNNEX to bring Audientes’ hearing healthcare products to Consumer Electronic channels in Japan.

The collaboration agreement between Audientes A/S and TD SYNNEX is the first of its kind for Audientes in the Japanese market and ensures that Companion by Audientes will become available to Japanese consumers via TD SYNNEX’ extensive distribution network later this year.

TD SYNNEX is a leading distributor and solutions aggregator in Japan with a considerable portfolio of more than 200,000 edge-to-cloud products, solutions, and services, including a large reach in consumer electronics channels.

To support the collaboration and the introduction of Audientes’ Companion product in Japan, Audientes has engaged Ms. Chinatsu Seki as Operations Manager, who together with Audientes’ board member, Mr. Hiroshi Maeda, will manage the key business relationships in Japan.  

Audientes will exhibit at TD SYNNEX’ Inspire event in Tokyo on November 15, 2023, aimed at retailers and solutions providers, and showcase its Companion by Audientes product, the advanced hearable which has received the needed approvals to be introduced in the Japanese market.

First step into the Japanese market

"We are very proud to make this announcement today. This agreement marks a very tangible step into the Japanese market, where we have received positive interest in our quality hearing solution, Companion by Audientes. Japan has the world’s second highest proportion of people aged over 65 and has approximately 14 million people suffering from some degree of hearing loss.  Of these, only 14% have a solution to their hearing loss, and products like Companion can help fill that gap. We look forward to pursuing this opportunity together with TD SYNNEX, as our distribution partner in Japan." comments Audientes CEO, Steen Thygesen
