Manila, Philippines
-- The formal launch of the new Columbia Digital Star Corporation was celebrated last 19, July 2010 at the Bubble Tea Café in Quezon City.

Originally known as Columbia Digital Sales Company since, the change signifies progression towards a more aggressive and unified company that focuses not only on sales but also in building the image, marketing and service of its world-class Brands: Nikon, Fuji, and Kis Photo-Me locally.

Nikon is the flagship brand of Columbia Digital that is the exclusive distributor of the DSLRs, lenses, speedlights, accessories and COOLPIX cameras. It continuously provides a wide range of innovative and stylish cameras not just for the professional photographer but for everyone. Those who have purchased Nikon units from the former company Columbia Digital Sales Co. need not worry as Columbia Digital Star Corp. will be the one to carry over all service and warranty issues.

Fuji film, paper and chemicals have Columbia Digital Star Corp. as the authorized distributor for the Philippine territories.

Kis Photo-Me is the manufacturer of the only machine in the whole industry that makes photobooks in just 6 minutes. Easy and more personalized designs, this intends to be a better alternative or add-on for retail photo shops. KIS also is the manufacturer of the world-renowned Photo-Me ID booth and Speedlab 200 which can be seen in the movie “Taken” starring Liam Neeson. Columbia Digital is the sole distributor for all KIS Photo-Me products in the Philippine territories.

For 2009, Columbia Digital has almost tripled its sales in Nikon, sustained Fuji and introduced the latest and most innovative products from Kiss Photo-Me.

The driving force behind its success for the last 4 years was lead by President Anderson Tan, Marketing VP JR Bonifacio, Camera Service Manager Ramil Portes, and more recently, National Sales Manager Junar Regullano, Kiss Photo-Me Service Engineer Manager Arthur Robles, Finance and Accounting Manager Lester Molina, and Vice President Madam Pamela Tan.

Columbia Digital Star Corporation also signed on new partners, Myungsuk Tan, Michelle Tan, Pamela Tan, and Michael Ching. An additional marketing manager was added as well, Ernest Perez.

With the new organization, there are more things to expect from Columbia Digital Star Corp.
