Gates Underwater Products Welcomes AbelCine as its First Proud Partner Dealership
Thursday, 19 June 2014
(Poway, California — June 19, 2013) Gates Underwater Products, the world leader in reliable underwater imaging systems, announced today the AbelCine dealership. A broadcast and cinema equipment sales, rental and service provider, AbelCine is the first to join Gates’ global dealer network as a Proud Partner member.
As a Proud Partner, AbelCine is authorized to offer sales and rental of Gates ‘bulletproof’ underwater equipment to a wide variety of applications that include broadcast, cinema and natural history. From their New York, Los Angeles and Chicago locations, AbelCine reaches a broad base of professionals seeking a one-stop-shop for production equipment.
AbelCine uniquely offers a significant and previously unavailable service to the underwater imaging professional: AbelCine Partner Financing. Now customers seeking an entire underwater system – camera, housing and accessories – can find attractive payment options and easy financing through AbelCine.
“An essential part of our value has been our ability to provide our customers with financing solutions that help them get the most out of their equipment investments,” stated Toni Rios, head of AbelCine’s Finance Services. “We’re excited to work with Gates to extend our financial services to a broader customer base.”
“Both AbelCine and Gates share a single-minded approach to customer service and professionalism,” affirmed Pamela Mertz, Gates Director of Sales. “We are committed to helping mutual customers achieve the most successful shoot possible. This new Proud Partnership will give cinema and broadcast professionals a reliable and knowledgeable ‘go to’ for all the underwater imaging needs.”
Gates equipment will be on display in the AbelCine New York and Los Angeles locations beginning 1 July 2014.
