product catalog to expediters for the first time, and is launching a new expediter
division to serve the full Southern California auto dealer market place, it
Al & Ed's, which operates 22 franchise-owned stores, has launched
a commercial division for expediting to be led by newly appointed area sales
manager Tim Mamalyga, who has previously held posts at Vizualogic, PAC and
other car electronics companies.
Al & Ed's Autosound locations will serve as installation
centers for the expediter program, although, in some cases, installation will
be performed at the car dealer, said the retailer.
The chain has set up a toll-free number where car dealers may
call to schedule appointments.

Southern California car dealers add accessories and back-end profits. There has never been a wide range, full
catalog offering to the Southern California
dealer market," said Al & Ed's product manager John Haynes.
