VAN NUYS, CA--AVAD is expanding its product offering 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 offering of pro AV products will include a fully-stocked assortment of products from leading 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.

Dedicated to serving the ever-changing needs of its dealer base of over 10,000 custom installation professionals, 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 dedication to quality, its committed group of specialists, complete catalog of the top brands and its comprehensive approach to customer support and training has made it the leading distributor of custom home electronics. AVAD’s successful combination of expert staff and ground-breaking programs has made the company one of the leading authorities within the residential AV industry and will help lead the distributor into the commercial market.

“With many dealers looking beyond the residential markets, we feel that this is the perfect opportunity to help our dealers expand their sales channels throughout the commercial AV industry,” said Jim Annes vice president and general manager of AVAD. “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,” added Annes.

AVAD will provide dealers access to the industry’s most frequent and in-depth product training and business management workshops to include the pro AV products and services it now carries. Professional installers will also have the opportunity to demo first-hand that latest technologies from these leading commercial AV manufacturers at each of AVAD’s 26 US facilities.

AVAD dealers will benefit from unique dealer events such as Vend-O-Palooza—a one-day event held at AVAD branches across the nation that connects area dealers with leading manufacturers in an efficient, interactive forum.
