MMD (Military Models Distributors) has been added as an additional Trumpeter Models distributor for the U.S. market. Previously, Magnolia, N.J.-based Stevens International held the exclusive rights for importing Trumpeter kits into the U.S.

Under the new deal, MMD, headquartered in Carrollton, Texas, and Stevens International will both import Trumpeter kits directly from China and distribute them to retailers.

In a press release, William Wang, Trumpeter’s manager of U.S. sales, said that the company believes the new partnership will bring “increased exposure” to the brand. The agreement, according the release, offers stores and distributors a “choice in their acquisition of [Trumpeter] products in the USA,” and hopefully expands availability and market penetration.
