Suning Appliance Co. obtained exclusive rights to sell Sweden-based Electrolux Group's washing machines in China, according to a China Knowledge report.
From now on, Suning stores will be the exclusive retailer of Electrolux washing machines in China. The report says that Electrolux will spend three months to remove all its washing machines from the other sales channels in China.
According to China Knowledge, Suning signed an exclusive co-operation agreement with Electrolux at the end of 2008, which enabled the current exclusive sales move. Currently, the report said, Suning has around 850 stores in China, and has exclusive rights to sell air-conditioners and water heaters made by Whirlpool Corp.
