Consumers can now purchase ZOLEO® from select Dalesman retailers.

Toronto, Canada, September 1, 2022 — Consumers can now purchase ZOLEO from select stores within Dalesman’s base of several hundred third-party retailers throughout the United Kingdom.

The distribution partnership comes as a result of ZOLEO Inc.’s expansion into the European market. Dalesman is a tier-one supplier with an expansive network of specialist independent stores catering to various outdoor pursuits. Its deep history in retailing for the off-grid communications solutions sector makes Dalesman a natural fit to distribute the ZOLEO satellite communicator.

Ideal for anyone who ventures beyond mobile coverage for work or recreation, the award-winning ZOLEO device has been embraced by a substantial and rapidly growing subscriber base that counts on ZOLEO for truly seamless global messaging and progressive SOS alerting wherever they work or play. The compact ZOLEO device connects via Bluetooth® to a free app on the user's Android® or Apple® smartphone/tablet to provide a seamless messaging experience. Messages are transmitted via Iridium® Short Burst Data® (SBD®), cellular and Wi-Fi®, and are automatically routed over the lowest-cost network.

“Dalesman’s quality portfolio of carried brands helps people get the very most from the outdoors. Those going out onto the trails want quality solutions they can rely on. The ZOLEO platform extends our broad base of retailers, the ability to offer outdoor enthusiasts safety and connectivity no matter where their pursuits might take them”, explains Dylan Evans, Sales Director at Dalesman International.
