OPPO to stop making AV products and exit the UK
Premium AV brand OPPO Digital is to stop making new products and will pull out of the UK this summer.
The US company, which was founded 14 years ago, is known for its award-winning products, including high-end headphones and Blu-ray players.
In a statement issued this week, the manufacturer said: “OPPO Digital will gradually stop manufacturing new products – existing products will continue to be supported, warranties will still be valid, and both in-warranty and out-of-warranty repair services will continue to be available.
“Firmware will continue to be maintained and updates released from time to time. Customers can rest assured that they will continue to receive the high quality service and support that they have come to expect from OPPO Digital.”
It added: “OPPO Digital UK will continue to trade while stocks last. However it expects to close its doors in the summer. Technical support, warranty claims, servicing and spares will in future be handled by a third party, with details to follow. All commitments made by OPPO Digital UK will be met.”
Said Nigel Rich, managing director of OPPO Digital UK: “We can be very proud of our achievements over the past few years. Along with market-leading products, we have provided first-rate customer service and support from our offices here in Norwich.
“I am very proud of our staff and very sad that we will now be closing our doors for good. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our European distributors, retailers and, of course, most importantly, the people that have purchased OPPO products in Europe. We will continue to support products in and out of warranty and we have made provisions to continue this high level of service.”
