Rodenstock USA to assume responsibilities going forward.
Since 2007, Tuscany Eyewear of Davie, FL, has had exclusive distribution rights for Porsche Design Eyewear in the U.S. and Canada. Tuscany Eyewear issued the following statement following its termination of the relationship: “Tuscany Eyewear has diligently and conscientiously supported the Porsche Design brand in these markets for more than ten years. Tuscany Eyewear has provided not only product distribution but service and repair facilities for its own customers as well as those of the Porsche Design stores. However, due to significant breaches of contract by Tuscany Eyewear’s former business cooperation partner and licensor, Rodenstock GmbH, Tuscany Eyewear has decided to terminate the cooperation with Rodenstock GmbH with immediate effect. Rodenstock USA LLC will therefore assume the responsibilities for distribution and service for all regions through their facility in Wyoming.”
Tuscany Eyewear president and CEO, Wayne Goldman said, “I regret having to withdraw our support of the Porsche Design brand. I have enjoyed a good relationship with Rodenstock and Porsche Design over the past ten years. However, we have had issues of intransigency that cannot be resolved.”
Tuscany Eyewear will continue to distribute it own brands in all regions as it has done for the last 22 years.
