DKSH Consumer Goods Korea achieves “Best Distributor of the Year 2023” recognition from LAMY. This award underscores DKSH’s exceptional success in driving brand growth and expansion in the Korean consumer goods market.

Seoul, South Korea, May 9, 2024 – DKSH Business Unit Consumer Goods Korea, a leading partner for companies seeking to grow their consumer goods business in Asia and beyond, has been honored with the prestigious “Best Distributor of the Year Award 2023” by LAMY, the renowned German manufacturer of high-quality writing instruments. This recognition is a testament to DKSH’s exceptional performance and dedication to expanding the LAMY brand in the dynamic South Korean market.

Since January 2013, DKSH Consumer Goods Korea has been the sole and exclusive distributor of LAMY products, offering a comprehensive range of full-agency services including marketing, sales, distribution, logistics, and after-sales support. Through strategic initiatives and dedicated efforts, DKSH has successfully positioned LAMY as a lifestyle brand, capturing the hearts of consumers across retail, B2B, and corporate sectors in South Korea.

One of the key milestones in this successful partnership was the collaboration between LAMY and Starbucks Korea in 2023.
