Bozeman, Mont. - Custom installer and
systems integrator Studio AV, here, has joined the Home Technology Specialists
of America (HTSA).
The six-year-old business, which
also maintains offices in Missoula, Mont., and Jackson, Wyo., becomes the
buying group's 60th member.
HTSA executive director Richard
Glikes said the group is "working diligently to fill in states where there are
currently no HTSA members." He called Studio AV "a natural choice" for the
group due to its design and installation services for residential and
professional environments, and its "design/build solutions that balance
innovative technology with utility and simplicity."
Founded by Cory Reistad in 2005, the
company outfits homes and businesses with premium A/V systems and dedicated
theater rooms; lighting control; motorized shading control; thermostat control;
board room and training room systems; security systems, including cameras,
occupancy sensors and access control; whole-house control for convenience and
energy use optimization; and monitoring and control of energy usage for
projects seeking LEED certification.
"Studio AV is a company comprised of diverse
professionals that take pride in the quality of every system and level of
service that we bring to our clientele," said Riestad. "We ... feel that HTSA as
a group holds to a similar philosophy
and that by joining as a member it will not only ensure that we are receiving
the best possible terms from our vendors but will also allow us to network with
the most highly regarded companies in the industry."
HTSA's 60 members comprise 95
storefronts and more than 400 installers across 38 states.
