Panamax/Furman has named AVIO, DSI Entertainment Systems, and Premier Custom Audio & Video as its 2011 Home Entertainment Source (HES) Dealer of the Year Award winners.
The awards were presented on February 28 at the annual HES Summit in Orlando, FL. Panamax/Furman has been a vendor partner of HES — a group of specialty consumer electronics independent dealers — since 2008. The Dealer of the Year Awards were created to recognize HES dealers for using Panamax/Furman’s extensive product line to address all of an installation’s power needs while maximizing profits.
Winners were selected based on the growth of their business with Panamax/Furman, and success in representing the BlueBOLT energy management and control platform.
Based in Troy, MI, AVIO was honored with an award based on its significant increase in sales over 2010. DSI Entertainment Systems from Lake Balboa, CA, also posted a sizeable year-over-year (YOY) sales increase, with the breadth of the Panamax/Furman line contributing to its profits. Finally, Carmel, IN-based Premier Custom Audio & Video was selected because of its approach to presenting BlueBOLT — an approach that has made it one of the top 20 BlueBOLT dealers in the United States.
“AVIO, DSI Entertainment Systems, and Premier Custom Audio & Video are exemplary in their representation of Panamax/Furman and our BlueBOLT platform, and it was an honor to present them with Dealer of the Year Awards today,” said Jimmy Paschke, director of CI sales for Panamax/Furman. “We are proud to have such high-caliber dealers carrying our solutions, and look forward to spending time with them every year at this one-of-a-kind event.”
