DTCL Sales & Marketing Director, Graham Avery, said 'the events were enthusiastically received by all who attended and that they had continued to raise awareness of the Rose K brand in India. The trip also allowed us to meet with three new distributors which now gives us extensive coverage of the Rose K products in all regions of India. We now have four distributors acting for us and coupled with our team of five co-educators to provide training in fitting Rose K lenses, we are now well placed to increase our sales into India.'
