CEDIA EXPO 2010 exhibitor, Capitol, has begun distributing Sherwood America Inc.’s Sherwood and Newcastle brand audio/video receivers (AVRs) to select dealers and installers.
Under the terms of the agreement, Capitol now offers Sherwood’s complete line of AVRs to dealers and integrators throughout the U.S., while the company’s Newcastle selection is available to all customers with the exception of those on the east coast.
“It’s almost impossible to summarize the value of the Newcastle and Sherwood names in a short statement,” says Jeff Kussard, Capitol’s strategic development director. “The company consistently develops and markets AVRs that pack leading edge technologies and reliability into affordable components that offer solid margins for the dealer. As both a distributor and as an audio enthusiast, I think Sherwood is one of the top vendors servicing this category.”
“Capitol’s team not only has an unshakable knowledge of the AVR category, but they’re pros at communicating the benefits of Sherwood products to any number of constituencies,” added Gary Graning, Sherwood America VP of sales. “We’re thrilled to be working with a distributor that is expert at servicing the custom, retail and premium/incentive channels.”
