Ukulele manufacturer Flight Instruments has granted Hal Leonard exclusive distribution of their ukulele products in the United States and Canada. The announcement came from Flight COO Primoz Virant and Hal Leonard Sr. VP Doug Lady.
Based in Slovenia and founded in 2010, Flight Instruments manufactures a wide selection of ukuleles crafted in a variety of styles and materials. As the ukulele explosion has grown, Flight has expanded beyond Slovenia and Europe, and is now available around the world. Through collaboration and partnerships with popular YouTubers, Instagrammers, and bloggers focusing on bringing ukulele tutorials to the masses, Flight maintains a strong presence in the social media age.
Hal Leonard already distributes Flight ukuleles throughout Europe and Australia. Virant says, “Hal Leonard has always placed great value on service and education and is exactly the type of partner we at Flight love to have. We’re very excited to continue to work with Hal Leonard in the US to continue to cultivate ukulele players everywhere.”
Lady adds, “We’re thrilled to offer U.S. dealers the assortment of Flight products. We look forward to helping the Flight brand expand across the US and Canada, and reach new markets with our retailers.”
