Last month, SnapAV acquired outdoor TV manufacturer, SunBriteTV, and today the company announced that those products are now available to purchase directly from SnapAV.
“We’re excited to have the market leader in outdoor TVs as part of our company,” said John Heyman, CEO of SnapAV. “The move away from residential distributors and independent reps is all about the power of SnapAV’s business model and providing more value to our customers. The efficiency we gain is translated into a lower dealer cost for the same great SunBriteTV product.”
Residential integrators accustomed to purchasing SunBriteTV products through distribution in the U.S. will now see lower prices when buying directly through SnapAV. The company will also offer free shipping on all outdoor TVs.
“We think providing the convenience of same-day shipping for a large item — without a price penalty — is exactly what dealers are looking for from us,” Heyman added.
For commercial and international integrators, SunBriteTV products will continue to be available through the same distribution channels.
SnapAV has big plans for outdoor-oriented products in the coming year.
“Internally, we talk about ‘snapifying’ outdoor solutions. We know it’s a huge growth area in both the residential and commercial channels, and we’re committed to making it easier and more profitable for dealers when selling outdoor systems,” said G. Paul Hess, SnapAV’s chief product officer. “Within the past few weeks, the teams at SunBriteTV and SnapAV have already joined forces on new product development projects. We’re excited about how the combined expertise of our teams is going to provide dealers with new solutions.”
SunBriteTV products join SnapAV’s Episode outdoor audio products, including outdoor speakers, burial and hardscape subwoofers, amplifiers, and accessories, and the company also plans to add outdoor products in additional categories. “We have big plans… and a few cool surprises for our dealers as well,” Hess added.
SunBriteTV products are now available to purchase by SnapAV dealers by visiting SnapAV.com or calling 866.424.4489.
