Golden Artist Colors Announces Exclusive Distribution Partnership with Royal Talens for Complete EMEA Region

July 01, 2024

Golden Artist Colors is pleased to announce that it has entered into a strategic long-term partnership with Royal Talens.  Effective January 1, 2025, Royal Talens will become the exclusive Distributor for all GOLDEN brands in Europe, the United Kingdom, the Middle East and Africa.  With the ever-changing regulatory landscape, GOLDEN and Royal Talens are confident their new partnership will bring increased knowledge and resources, helping to better service its international customers.

“We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to partner with Royal Talens,” said GOLDEN CEO, Mark Golden. “Through this change, we must also recognize our past distributors (some old and some more recent) and their commitment and support for our company and brands throughout our company’s history. They have helped build the foundation for our success globally but the increasingly complex regulatory environment necessitates that we engage with Royal Talens in order to sustain the gains of the past while creating solutions for current and future challenges.”  Focused on providing customers with outstanding quality and exceptional customer service while achieving strong supply chains, this collaboration offers retailers an expanded product range and local stock for quicker deliveries.

“The partnership between Royal Talens and GOLDEN in the EMEA region is a perfect match.  We share common values in responsible manufacturing, sourcing, and corporate vision sustainability, and much more.  I see a long-lasting relationship ahead of us in collaboratively driving further penetration through supportable sales growth for both our great companies,” said Royal Talens CEO, Ronald Benning. “We have long admired the branding and engagement GOLDEN endures with artists globally.  Applying our collective expertise gained over the past 125 years in sales, marketing and distribution, utilizing our four distribution centers within the EU, our aim is to deploy the same level of energy in availability of GOLDON products that our existing Royal Talens customers enjoy today.”
