ProSource has added ICE Cable Systems, a premium wire and cable manufacturer, and MantelMount, the producer of TV mounting products, to its vendor partners list.
Founded in 2004, ICE Cable Systems is a supplier of low-voltage wire and cable products for the residential CEDIA market. The company also boasts a commercial division and more than 20 international distributors. Headquartered in Los Angeles with an additional warehouse in Philadelphia, ICE's innovations help installers operate more efficiently to save time and money.
MantelMount's patented construction combines automotive pistons, lightweight alloys, and counterbalance technology with a proprietary recess box that mounts a TV flush to the wall. The company says that its products allow anyone to easily pull a large flatscreen TV down off the wall and suspend it at eye level for the perfect viewing experience.
"ProSource welcomes our newest vendors and their solutions to real-world challenges," said Dave Workman, CEO and president of ProSource. "ICE Cable Systems' complete lineup of cable and accessories is a great benefit for our members. With a bevy of exclusive features, MantelMount provides a quality solution, offering convenience to customers."
"We listened to the problems installers were having with bulk cable and created a number of time-saving and performance-enhancing innovations," remarked Brian Rizzo, CEO and founder of ICE Cable Systems. "With ICE, you get the good stuff for the price of generic."
"Although mounting a TV high on a wall—especially above a fireplace—is a popular option, it creates a poor viewing angle," stated Bill Boyer, director of sales for MantelMount. "Our MantelMount unit solves this common problem by allowing consumers to bring their TVs down to eye level for an optimal viewing experience."
