TNS Distribution has announced its expansion into the Asia Pacific region by opening offices in Sydney and Singapore.

Based in Dublin, TNS Distribution has global operations with bases in the UK, Germany, France, Singapore, Sweden, Australia, Spain and China.

It is a trade only distributor of consumer electronics and accessories for Apple products.

The company has also started to offer services using PCH International entities in mainland China, Hong Kong and Japan. PCH International acquired TNS Distribution in June 2011.

“We have developed a highly successful and sophisticated business model in Europe which we can now offer to our global retail partners for the Asia Pacific region,” said John McHugh, co-founder of TNS Distribution.

Ivan Eustace, co-founder of TNS Distribution, added: “The new offices have already generated a significant amount of business working with world-leading vendors including Orla Kiely, an Irish fashion brand. We anticipate this trend will continue with increasing exports of European and US fashion brands into China and the Asia Pacific region, which will be a major focus for us in 2012.”
