The Tape Company, which opened for business in 1987, is now known as Media Distributors.
In order to bring…More together the best of both leaders supplying pro video, data media, hard drives, disc media, disc publishing, and content archival solutions, The Tape Company and Media Distributors, formerly operating as separate entities, will now operate together, under the Media Distributors name.
“We inherited a great amount of new product and solution expertise when we acquired Media Distributors”, said Bob Daly, VP of Sales for The Tape Company, and co-owner of Media Distributors. “The Tape Company also brings a lot to the table, in the way of nationwide locations, online ordering, and a large product selection. It was natural to bring the best of both of these organizations together to better serve all of our customers.”
The Tape Company has stocking warehouse locations in several major cities, including Philadelphia, Chicago, Seattle, Dallas, and Atlanta as well as Burbank, California. Media Distributors has operated for more than two decades, as a preferred source for recording media in the Los Angeles area. Now, Media Distributors customers will receive next-day delivery to most US cities via ground delivery, as well as many technological efficiencies, reward programs, a large product selection and ease of ordering, just as The Tape Company has done for more than 24 years.
“The Tape Company’s name fit our business perfectly, until the use of tape in acquisition and editing evolved to solid state media, hard drives and disc media over the past decade”, said Daly. “Tape is still widely used for archival purposes, but we now offer a huge variety of these new products, as well as blu-ray, digital asset management, disc publishing solutions and more. Although we are still one of the nations’ largest suppliers of tape, Media Distributors’ name, developed in the late '90s, fits better with all these new product offerings.”
Michael Cullen, president of The Tape Company and co-owner of Media Distributors, said, “It is important that our loyal Tape Company customers know that we will continue to serve them as we always have, and in several cases, even better, now that we will be known as Media Distributors."
Combined product knowledge, nationwide footprint, large inventory and fast delivery provides recording media and solutions for anyone in production, including entertainment, corporate, government, or any industry producing content professionally.
The Tape Company will continue to provide superior customer service and ease of ordering.
“Now, if Media Distributors customers prefer to order online, the new Media Distributors web site is customizable to each customer’s special needs,” said Daly.
Of course, if they prefer to order over the phone, the customer service staff can quickly and accurately take their orders, or a special custom order form can be used.
Founded in 1998, Media Distributors has been a supplier of video and data recording media, hard drives, CD/DVD/BD disc media and equipment, and associated products to the entertainment and broadcast production community. The Tape Company, started in 1987, has been the nation’s largest stocking supplier of recording media.
