Insight and Black Box Distribution have inked a new partnership deal for the United States.

Insight will remain focused on product design and all forms of brand marketing, while Black Box will be responsible for sales and distribution. Insight will also maintain its brand headquarters and showroom in Los Angeles. Brand President Jesse Faen and the marketing team will work together with Insight Sales staff there, while all other aspects of the business will shift locations and be managed from the Black Box offices in Carlsbad, CA.

"I'm excited and very confident about partnering with Black Box in the US," said Insight’s Faen. "I'm sure their collective experience and knowledge will greatly support the Insight brand as we continue our evolution and expansion across the US market.”

Jamie Thomas, Black Box Founder and President, added: "The originality and raw appeal of the brand is inspiring. This opportunity is the best-case scenario of brand diversity for Black Box.”

The partnership will be active with the delivery of the Fall '09 collection.
