RNA Entertainment was setup in 2010 to specifically cater to the distribution needs on behalf of record labels and film studios within the local entertainment sector. The principal focus is to provide a fully comprehensive solution to the industry which includes warehousing, stock management, the processing of orders, financial management (debtors), reworks and the distribution to retail and independent outlets. Leveraging off the strength and proven track record of RNA’s existing distribution network resulted in RNA becoming a competitive player in a field traditionally dominated by one entity.
The current client base includes:
- Next Entertainment who manages the MGM and Fox studios in South Africa and who recently acquired the Dreamworks studio, Next distributes ± 4500 products and holds approximately R8.5 mil in stock.
- Sony Music Entertainment, the most recent acquisition. Sony joined RNA in Aug 2011 and is the second largest record label in South Africa. Sony’s portfolio consists of both international artists as well as some of the most prominent and successful south African artist. Currently distribution entails ± 13 500 items with a stock holding in excess of R12 million.
To strengthen the CTP group’s position in the entertainment sector, investments were made in both the printing of “paper parts” (sleeves and booklets for CD and DVD covers) via House of Print and the replication and manufacturing of CD’s and DVD’s through CTP Digital Services. Once again offering a “one stop solution” within the CTP stable.
