American Hobby Distributors Awarded Lenz Distribution for the North America

Lenz GmbH is pleased to announce the phased retirement of Debbie Ames and the transfer of the management of the Lenz Agency from Tried and True Trains to American Hobby Distributors.

Since 1992 Lenz GmbH has been active in the North American model railroad market. Our DCC technology was used as the basis of the NMRA Digital Command Control standards and we have continued to develop innovative products that have advanced model railroad control.

We formed the Lenz Agency in 1996 to better serve the North American market. For over 14 years Debbie has managed and grown the North American business for us. Her dedication to our company, the Lenz Agency and to model railroading in general has been a great benefit to the Model Railroader.

We have selected American Hobby Distributors to manage our North American Agency and to continue the excellence that Debbie has brought to the Agency.

American Hobby Distributors has a proven track record in customer support and an extensive, comprehensive knowledge of DCC and the model railroading community.

We expect little change for our customers other then the change of address for warranty services and a different set of people on the support line.

We wish Debbie the best of luck as she phases into retirement and welcome the AHD team to the Lenz family.
