Caldera and Barbieri sign cooperation agreement for distribution of Barbieri electronic products

May 17, 2022

In a new agreement that reinforces their historical partnership, Barbieri appoints Caldera as the master distributor for all Barbieri electronic solutions in a variety of countries worldwide.

Over time, Caldera has accumulated strong sales and technical experience in Barbieri’s products, putting them in an ideal position to increase Barbieri’s global presence and availability. 

From April 2022, Caldera will distribute the complete Barbieri product range, with the objective of reinforcing both brands’ ongoing partnership, while increasing customer performance and satisfaction.   

Barbieri electronic’s range of spectrophotometers includes the following models:

Following this agreement, Caldera is becoming the Master Distributor for all Barbieri products worldwide, with the exception of the following countries: United States, Canada, China, Taiwan, Hong-Kong, Vietnam, Philippines, Korea, Germany and Italy. 

Barbieri’s range of measuring devices will be available in two different lines— the blue Barbieri line and the orange Caldera line.   

Sebastien Hanssens, Caldera’s VP Marketing & Operations, says, “We’re incredibly excited about this opportunity to expand our strong business relationship with Barbieri. The products are top of the class for color management in our markets, and at Caldera, we have always focused on developing software which helps our users deliver outstanding color quality.”  

Stefan Barbieri, CEO, says, “In appointing Caldera Master Distributor for Barbieri products, we’re cementing one of our most important business partnerships. Caldera has consistently demonstrated an excellent understanding of our product range and our mission, and I feel confident that we have a firm future working together.”
