Osterville, MA -- Savant Systems LLC announced the appointment of Evolution Home Entertainment Corp. as exclusive distributor for the Canadian marketplace.
Preparations for entering the Canadian market have been ongoing, and the Evolution staff was invited to participate in Savant's dealer conference, held this past June on Cape Cod.
"Dealers and integrators in Canada will have the benefit of support from Savant in the US combined with Evolution's extensive resources to ensure the competitive advantages of Canadian warehousing and fast availability of hardware and service," Savant's VP of sales, Ben Jamison, explained. "We think this provides the best of both worlds for the sales channel in Canada."
Evolution's commitment to grow this category includes the assignment of industry veteran and seasoned integrator, Brad Middleton as Evolution's Savant Brand Manager.
"After so many years sorting out the automation world, I can't wait to show our dealers how Savant will make their lives much simpler and allow them to refocus on the reasons why they got into this business in the first place," Middleton said.
Also looking forward to the new partnership is Evolution's president, Saxe Brickenden.
"Our objective is to enhance the amazingly high standards that Savant has established in the US. We add local services such as inventory, billing in Canadian funds, support for local dealer events, assistance with design showroom presentations, and telephone support in both English and French," Brickenden said. "It is helpful that we already have established open credit with most of the target accounts, and that we have the logistics in place to get the product to market efficiently."
