Union Square Music – the UK’s leading independent catalogue marketing company has selected Sony DADC to provide supply chain logistics for its UK audio business.
USM releases single artist titles, multi-artist compilations, TV advertised albums, deluxe original albums and artist anthology box sets from artists as diverse as Madness, Slade, Johnny Cash, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Michael Crawford, The Undertones and Gilbert O’Sullivan.
The multi-year agreement, which started August 1st, utilises Sony DADC’s state-of-the-art distribution facility in Enfield, North London. The Enfield facility was totally re-built last year after being destroyed by fire in the London riots of August 2011.
Established in 1999, Union Square Music has an extensive catalogue of over 850 titles and a flourishing licensing division controls an extensive catalogue of hit recordings across all music genres. Based in West London, USM has established itself as a major force in catalogue music and is set to further expand its activities over the coming years. “Union Square Music has grown into the 8th largest company in the UK audio market. In Sony DADC we have a distribution company with the knowledge, infrastructure and importantly, the passion to support our continued growth,” commented Peter Stack, Managing Director at Union Square Music. ”It is clear that Sony DADC completely understands our business needs and has the resources necessary to become a significant factor in our continued success”.
Since re-opening its Enfield Distribution Centre last year, Sony DADC has scored a number of successes in the UK & European supply chain logistics market. “We are proud to have secured a multi-year agreement with one of the leading independent music labels” commented Roger Twynham, Head of UK Audio Business Development at Sony DADC UK. “Physical media is still the major component of the UK home entertainment market and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work closely with the USM team and actively support their thriving business model.
