01 August 2013 - Samsung, the world’s largest TV brand, signs new contract with Domestic & General

Domestic & General is delighted to announce a major new contract with the world’s largest TV brand, Samsung. The deal heralds a significant new relationship between the two companies designed to drive data acquisition and warranty sales through deeper engagement with Samsung customers. Leveraging Domestic & General’s core strengths in customer service and extended warranty products, the deal sees registration stickers and in-box registration cards incorporated across Samsung’s key TV ranges.

Ken Wilson, Executive Director at Domestic & General, said, “Over two years of planning have gone into expanding our working relationship with Samsung and we are pleased to have the opportunity to prove our best practice data and warranty model to this major Korean brand - both in the UK and to the head office in Seoul. With Samsung TVs often installed in a customer’s home just four weeks from date of manufacture, our speed of implementation, exceptional customer handling and portfolio of service-lead extended warranty products were key USPs for this premier brand.”

The Samsung deal follows on from recent contract wins for Domestic & General with refrigeration company LEC and photographic specialist Nikon.
