“The pandemic period brought its own challenges but at Eros we turned this period of adversity to one of opportunity.” says Deepak Babani, Vice Chairman of Eros Group. “As we added very strong and big global brands to our portfolio, we also planned for the opening of two new stores – Al Zahia, Sharjah and Dalma Mall, Abu Dhabi – and one shop-in-shop at AFCOP. This has been coupled with a massive drive to boost the online and ecommerce business by its own ecommerce platform and partnership with the major online retailers for all its brands and business.
“At a time when most companies were struggling to cope with the effects of pandemic, our committed teams worked very hard not only to excel in our current business but also lay a strong foundation for the addition of new brands and businesses that will complement it.” says Ahmed Badri, Director of Eros Group.
The new brands that have partnered with Eros last year include Ariston from Italy, Amazfit, Avita and Huawei Idea Hub from China, Vaio and Rinnai from Japan and Saregama from India. These brands bring a broad range of products to the market, spanning premium appliances to smart wearables, high-spec laptops and workplace multimedia solutions.
Babani says all seven of the new brands brought to the region by Eros are relevant during the pandemic. Amazfit tracks a number of important health metrics: SpO2, heart rate, activity and sleep quality. “These are important now as major emphasis is being placed on health and wellness.”
“Huawei IdeaHub is an exceptional home or corporate device that will replace projectors or white boards in the long run and combines the best of display technology and modern audio-visual tools for an all-in-one solution for modern office – especially when physical meetings between people is becoming more difficult.”
“Saregama helps you relieve yourself from day-to-day stress by listening to golden oldies with some very affordable speakers that deliver high-quality sound and specially curated selection of songs, with app control and a built-in radio.”
“Ariston is a premium Italian appliances brand with a very rich heritage and its re introduction into the market brings in functional and beautiful appliances with Italian touch at an affordable price point.
VAIO and Avita offer laptops ranging from economical to premium in price that address the needs of workers and students alike.
Rinnai is a well-established Japanese appliances brand that brings premium quality to cooking appliances that it produces in many world-class manufacturing facilities across the globe.”
“In the current scenario, the value-for-money segment has become even more important, and these brands fit the need of the hour.” Babani adds.
He added it has always been the endeavor of Eros Group in its rich history of 53 years to bring brands and products that are relevant and suited to the requirement of the local market and back it up with the best of service and distribution in the market, the simple recipe of success.
