Center Valley, PA—Olympus named Backscatter Underwater Video and Photo as a new distributor to serve the dive/watersports industry in North America and the Caribbean. Backscatter, which has been a leading retailer of Olympus products for several years, will lend its expertise as it supports the growing network of dealers and dive shops that sell Olympus underwater products across the region.
“Backscatter has always shown industry leading expert knowledge of underwater photography and Olympus products,” said Stacey Wenner, associate product manager, Olympus Imaging America. “We are delighted to have them as a key partner in supplying Olympus cameras and underwater products to our dive and watersports dealer network.”
“Olympus has long been a supporter of underwater photography, having developed one of the first housings for a compact digital camera. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to distribute this product line within the dive and watersports industry,” said Jim Decker, Backscatter CEO. “In the past few years, Olympus has expressed a renewed commitment to the dive market with their Pen and Tough series products. We look forward to working with Olympus, dive shops and dealers. We’ll also be distributing third party accessories so our dealers will have the ability to offer their customers a complete ready-to-dive underwater camera system.” olympusamerica.com
