Monster PARTNERS WITH AVAD TO ENHANCE DISTRIBUTION AND PROVIDE CUSTOM INTEGRATORS WITH THE PRODUCTS AND TOOLS THEY NEED TO GROW THEIR BUSINESSES
- Partnership with AVAD Will Help Monster Better Serve the Custom Integration Marketplace with Strategic Profit-Building Sales Solutions, Training and Support -
Las Vegas, NV, January 9, 2012 - Monster, world leader in the manufacturing of high-performance headphones, connectivity solutions and consumer electronics accessories, is proud to announce it has entered a strategic distribution partnership with AVAD, the country's most complete residential and commercial integration solutions provider. The alliance with AVAD will allow Monster to expand its reach in the growing custom integration marketplace, providing retailers with an efficient, responsive and sophisticated distribution and training network for its full line of A/V accessories and other products. Monster products are currently available at all 21 AVAD locations in the U.S. and will be available at three AVAD Canadian locations by February 2012.
AVAD is an industry leading provider of solutions to the residential and commercial custom installation markets. AVAD, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ingram Micro, provides integrators access to the industry's top products and integrated solutions for residential and commercial video, audio, lighting control, content management, whole-home and business automation and control, as well as digital signage and commercial solutions and design services. AVAD also offers an award winning dealer training program and unmatched local technical and application support for dealers. AVAD's vast network of certified dealers and installers will help Monster significantly expand its reach within the custom installation market and beyond.
Noted Head Monster Noel Lee: "Our alliance with AVAD is an idea whose time has definitely come. It will help us dramatically enhance our overall market management in the custom integration arena and increase profitability for our dealers. As the CE industry continues to evolve, new technologies and products emerge almost every day, many offering installers valuable ancillary sales opportunities. Unfortunately, for many integrators, there are just so many products and accessories categories out there that finding the ideal solutions for customers can be daunting. With AVAD as our distribution partner, we will be able to offer our retailers not only quick and responsive access to all Monster products, but easy access to the training, information resources and tools they need to grow their businesses and build profits. AVAD's best-in-class sales support, customer service and technical support will provide a clear pathway for success."
