BAIE D'URFE, Quebec – Human Touch, a resource for robotic massage chairs, zero-gravity chairs and other wellness products, has signed an agreement with Erikson Consumer, a consumer electronics supplier based in this suburb of Montreal, to serve as the company’s primary distributor in Canada.

In a statement, the Long Beach, California-based company said the agreement will expand its presence in the Canadian market. Until recently, the line has been distributed by the Vaughn, Ontario-based Better Distribution.

“We’re extremely pleased with this new distribution agreement,” said Peter Theran, vice president of sales and marketing for Human Touch. “Erikson Consumer has an established and commanding presence in the Canadian market, and this partnership will provide excellent service for our dealers and owners of our products across Canada.”

The Active 2.0 massage chair is part of the iJoy collection from Human Touch, which has named Erikson Consumer as its new Canadian distributor.Through Erikson Consumer, Human Touch will offer a variety of new and innovative products, including high-performance Novo XT massage chairs and therapeutic Perfect Chair recliners. Both of these products have exclusive endorsements by the World Federation of Chiropractic as a valid supplement to back care therapies.

They have also been recognized with multiple Design Journal Awards for Design Excellence (ADEX) for their design form and function.

A division of Jam Industries, Erikson Consumer is believed to one of the country’s largest independent distributor of audio and electronic equipment, representing brands such as Audio Technica, Harman/Kardon and Sinclair Audio among others.  It stable includes mobile, multi-media and home audio/video products, which can be found in all key national and regional chains, as well furniture and appliance stores as well as specialised independents.

“Human Touch has a proven history of innovative design and commitment to high quality wellness products,” said Kevin Walsh, Erikson Consumer’s product manager. “We are excited to represent Human Touch products in Canada and to have the opportunity to grow its footprint across Canada.”
