MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA, 17 January 2022:  Beam Communications Holdings Ltd (ASX: BCC) is pleased to announce that it has signed a retail partnership agreement with Bapcor Limited’s (ASX: BAP) Autobarn, which will sell the multi-award winning ZOLEO Global Satellite Communicator at its outlets across the country.

Autobarn is Australia’s premium full-service auto accessory retailer with over 130 stores nationwide and it will start retailing ZOLEO from February 2022.

“We are delighted to include ZOLEO in our product offering as we believe the affordable satellite communications device will appeal to our customer base, particularly the many off-road enthusiasts who have come to depend on us to provide best-in-class products and solutions,” said Jim Lambert, Autobarn’s General Manager – Merchandise

Autobarn is part of Bapcor, which is Asia Pacific's leading provider of vehicle parts, accessories, equipment, service and solutions. Many of its products are fitted to cars, four-wheel drives and commercial vehicles, such as trucks.

“We are excited to be able to partner with another leading Australian retailer for ZOLEO. Autobarn is the first national automotive-specialist retailer that will offer the seamless messaging solution, and the automotive industry is another key demographic for ZOLEO,” said Beam’s Vice President of ZOLEO Sales, Peter Papas.

“Under this new agreement, the number of Australian retail outlets that sell ZOLEO will increase by more than four-fold in the 2022 March quarter to around 440 locations when compared to the same period this year.”
