“The appointment of Stampede to represent our JOAN product line marks the start of a major brand expansion in the North American market,” Zalar said today.  “Stampede’s proven ability to provide its clients with broad and deep market coverage through its integrated program of sales, training, support and marketing events is going to help us to bring the benefits of the JOAN to an entirely new audience of commercial customers.  We have already shipped tens of thousands of JOAN devices to customers around the world.  We expect that this new partnership with Stampede will significantly increase the number of customers for JOAN throughout North America.”
