Mossberg has terminated the agreement with its global distributor and will begin selling its products factory-direct to international distributors.

The change is effective Nov. 1, 2019.

Mossberg previously utilized Essex International Trading, Inc., as an exclusive distributor shipping into most of the global marketplace. Mossberg and Essex have mutually agreed to terminate their business relationship, effective immediately. 

“The international sales landscape has evolved over the past five years and we’ve identified the need to create a factory-direct distribution network that will increase product availability worldwide,” said John MacLellan, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Mossberg. “We are excited about this change and believe it will allow us to better reach our global customer base through a new competitive, direct-to-international distributor sales model.”

Mossberg will be actively working to set up international market-specific distribution agreements in the coming months. All international sales inquiries should be directed to Erica Basile, International Sales Manager for Mossberg. She can be reached at +1 203-230-5352 or
