Van Nuys, CA – North American distributor, AVAD, is expanding its product line to include a full array of pro AV solutions, reinforcing its commitment to addressing the unique needs of custom installers. AVAD’s new lineup of commercial AV products includes the latest from industry leaders Bogen, Crown International, Denon Professional, JBL Pro, and Speco Technologies, along with a mix of products from several of its existing partners.
In addition to the new vendors, AVAD’s line of pro AV products will include an assortment of products from brands such as Aprilaire, Chief, Draper, Gefen, JVC Pro, Key Digital, Lutron, Middle Atlantic, Netstreams, Omnimount, Panasonic Pro, Panasonic Phones, Peerless, Remote Technologies Inc. (RTI), Sirius, and Sivoia.
AVAD’s expansion into the commercial AV industry marks a significant movement for the distributor that has primarily served the needs of the residential installer, since its inception in 1998. AVAD’s vice president and general manager, Jim Annes, said that the goal is to help dealers who are already exploring sales channels outside of their residential core.
“AVAD has always prided itself on helping our dealers successfully manage and grow their businesses. As part of this launch, we will help guide those dealers looking to expand into new markets, as well as augment the capabilities of dealers already working within the commercial AV industry, through in-depth sales and product training, technical support and system design assistance.
“Now, with a complete and up-to-date offering from the market leaders in both the pro AV and residential categories we will continue to provide our dealers with the convenience of coming to AVAD for all of their custom installation needs,” Annes said.
