Allnet Distributing, a Catalyst AV member, is opening a fourth location to service the needs of the Minneapolis market in the beginning of September.

This will bring the total of Catalyst AV member locations to 25 located throughout the U.S.

Allnet’s newest location is at 5250 W 74th Street, Edina, MN, and will feature 7,000 square feet, self-shop/will call, and a large training room.
“This location is pressure tested and we are anticipating tremendous sales with a great capacity for servicing dealers in this area,” said Wally Whinna , principal of Allnet and board member of the Catalyst AV Distribution Network.

Allnet distributes a brand assortment with names such as Samsung, Lutron, Definitive Technology, eero, and 62 more. The additional location is centrally located with easy access to a majority of the area’s dealers, close to affluent customers and the hot new construction areas of Minnetonka and Southwest Metro.

“Training is an everyday activity at Allnet,” Whinna added. “We have on-site design and technical services to work with dealer/integrators so they have the resources available when needed. We have augmented our already significant training efforts with our webinars and on YouTube where our training webinars have grown to more than 50,000 YouTube minute views. Allnet experts can also work within the field, one on one with clients, to assist in closing sales and designing the perfect solution for any application.” 

Allnet’s has other locations in Elk Grove Village, IL; Troy, MI; and Carmel, IN.
