Latin America. ProGrade Digital is a company that was founded with the mission of providing professional-grade memory cards and workflow solutions of the highest quality available, with a strong position within the professional market and a significant product line. It is now in the Latino market through Merlin Distributor.
ProGrade Digital's founders are industry veterans from the professional removable storage and digital photography markets, each having stinted with leading companies such as Lexar and SanDisk, bringing extensive experience in designing, developing and manufacturing digital storage products, as well as long-standing relationships with key manufacturing and supply chain partners.
The company focuses exclusively on developing memory cards, card readers and workflow software for the professional imaging markets. Its flagship products are ProGrade Digital CFast™ 2.0 and ProGrade Digital SDXC™ UHS-II, they are optimized to offer maximum performance when combined with DSLR cameras, mirrorless, camcorders and high-end digital cinema cameras from manufacturers such as Canon, Nikon, Panasonic, Sony and Blackmagic Design. ProGrade Digital memory cards expand the creative visions of film and photography professionals around the world.
Wes Brewer, Founder and CEO of ProGrade Digital, has a positive outlook on the professional market in this region saying, "We see great potential to enter the Latin American market because there is a lack of availability of high-quality, high-performance products available to imaging professionals in this region today. We believe ProGrade's broad product offering and brand reputation will allow us to gain market share with a good momentum to continue building our global business in the coming years through increased penetration in Latin America."
For his part, Edson Marion, CEO of Merlin Distributor expressed that this regional distribution agreement is of great importance to his company, convinced that ProGrade Digital's high level of products will have an excellent reception from Latin America: "The professional quality of its products makes it an ideal distribution option for our entire network of distributors in Latin America, Added to the growing production in our continent, it will make ProGrade products an ideal tool for image creators."
