Chester Springs, Pa. — Azione Unlimited, the educational and buying group for custom retailers and integrators, has bestowed its fourth ever Golden Goose Award to Integra.
The quarterly recognition is given to the Azione vendor member that provides the most profit to the group’s dealers during that period.
Integra’s award covers the fourth quarter of 2012.
The premium A/V component vendor “delivers great product and outstanding profits day in and day out,” said Azione president Richard Glikes. “I can’t think of any more deserving individual than Keith Haas and the great company he represents.”
Glikes added that Integra designs and builds components that home-theater enthusiasts love, and that set new standards for system integration, upgrade capability and multizone expansion.
Past Golden Goose Award winners were Almo Distributing, Liberty AV Solutions and Sonance.
Glikes noted that Azione’s No. 1 goal “is to deliver exceptional profits to members to ensure their long-term success.” The vision, he said, is “to bring a limited number of the country’s finest custom retailers and integrators together to share ideas, grow their bottom lines, and become a market unto itself.”
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
