Mossberg goes direct to distributors

Mossberg has announced that it will begin selling its products factory-direct to international distributors from November 1st, 2019.

Mossberg previously utilised Essex International Trading, Inc., as an exclusive distributor for Mossberg product shipping into most of the global marketplace. Mossberg and Essex have mutually agreed to terminate their business relationship, effective immediately.

“The international sales landscape has evolved over the past five years and we’ve identified the need to create a factory-direct distribution network that will increase product availability worldwide,” said John MacLellan, vice-president of sales and marketing for Mossberg.

“We are excited about this change and believe that it will allow us to better reach our global customer-base through a new competitive, direct-to-international distributor sales model.”

Mossberg will be actively working to set up international market-specific distribution agreements in the coming months.

All international sales inquiries should be directed to Erica Basile, international sales manager for Mossberg. Erica can be reached by calling +1 203-230-5352 or by sending an email to
