  Profile  
    
  Since entering the Italian market, SELF DISTRIBUZIONE S.r.l. has covered the role of the largest and most successful music distributor.

The company was created in early 1996 as a partnership with a capital of one billion Italian lire. Other than the Managing Director Vittorio Lombardoni, who is an accredited member of the national independent music market, the partnership includes an important outside investor and Time Records, one of the most prestigious Italian dance labels existing.

In the dance area, the company's activities prosper thanks to the exclusive distribution of several dance labels including Time Records. SELF DISTRIBUZIONE released numerous singles, albums, and highly successful compilations including the best-selling "Deejay Parade" series .

In the same year , 1996, the company sees it's first big success with the album of Robert Miles (over 190.000 copies sold in Italy) and with many compilations entering strongly into the sales charts.

During the following two years SELF DISTRIBUZIONE gains the distribution of further important labels such as Century Media, Stickman, Modern Music, Beggars Banquet, and Burning Heart. In 1999 distribution agreements were made with Warp, Domino, LMP and 4AD (previously distributed by Virgin).

The structure is further able to compete effectively with multinational companies in the rapid supply of product to customers and is the only independent distributor that directly supplies chain stores and malls for a total of 900 accounts, from retail stores to specialised channels also comprising regional wholesalers. In 2000 SELF DISTRIBUZIONE gives birth to its own "chain with no name" (similar to that created by Vital in the United Kingdom) to date composed of 85 stores selected for their dependability, knowledge of the market, ability to provide visibility for the product, to handle numerous titles, provide updated catalogues to their public and to supply the distributor with input and useful information for the overall optimisation of sales and procedures.

The warehouse and offices of SELF DISTRIBUZIONE are located in Milan (via Via Salomone, 61) but the structure guarantees delivery throughout Italy.
In the course of the last few months of 2001, the company sees the fusion with BOMB distribution, an important distributor with a particular orientation towards techno and alternative product, and by consequence a closer relationship with Verona based S.A.I.F.A.M. Records.
On a more international level , the recent acquisition of Rough Trade / Tug Boat / Sanctuary' s group ' new catalogue has brought in another incentive to further developments .

SELF DISTRIBUZIONE's recent interest and attention in new emerging talents and music/songwriters of national origin further confirm the excellent state of health of the company and its leading role which was acquired thanks also to its high prowess and the quality of its services. As matter of fact, the new born imprint called Noize Factor with its overseas production facilities in Los Angeles is going to set a new leading role with regards to international production skills and expectations.
