SnapAV has acquired Allnet, a leading regional distributor, in an effort to better serve custom integrators in the Midwest. Allnet currently maintains four branch locations–Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, and Minneapolis.
This acquisition allows SnapAV dealers to purchase products at Allnet locations, while Allnet dealers now receive exclusive access to the full SnapAV product catalog.
“This past year, we looked for ways improve our service in the Midwest,” said John Heyman, SnapAV CEO. “This acquisition offers dealers in the region faster shipping times and the option for local pickup, which will help them grow their business.”
Both SnapAV and Allnet are both well known in the industry for a dealer-first approach and strong commitment to service.
“When you look at the culture of our two companies, this deal just makes sense,” said Wally Whinna, president of Allnet. “We always strive to put dealers’ needs first, and we’re grateful to have a partner that shares those values.”
Allnet will retain its name, branch locations, team, and policies moving forward. Both Whinna and Allnet vice president of sales Bill Zidek will remain in their current roles, with Whinna running all Allnet locations.
SnapAV products will be available at Allnet distribution locations in the coming weeks. For now, dealers will continue to order where they so choose, through either Allnet or SnapAV, and all services and support will remain the same.
“We’re excited to bring the experience and expertise of the Allnet team to SnapAV,” Heyman added. “By expanding our services in the Midwest region, we’ve echoed our rallying cry – ‘making dealers’ lives easier.’”
Both SnapAV and Allnet dealers will receive communication in the coming weeks regarding further details.
