Home Entertainment Source (HES) has added nine more manufacturers to its vendor roster.
The additions include Savant, Planar/Runco, TK Living, SIM2, Lutron, Vutec, Salez Toolz, Cinemacoustic Solutions and Zvox.
The specialty A/V buying group, a division of the $14 billion BrandSource organization, said the new additions provide more options for its independent dealer members and demonstrate the group’s growth.
“Q1 was very productive for us,” observed HES communications director Andy Orozco. “The clout behind these brands cannot be underestimated — these manufacturers are the best in the business and will allow dealers to offer more complete solutions to their customers.”
“We are adding more and more new members, new programs, and new manufacturers and are excited to continue to grow and offer our members the most comprehensive programs, products, and support available from any consumer electronics buying group,” said Jim Ristow, the group’s executive VP.
HES is a 100 percent member-owned merchandising group dedicated to the independent A/V integrator and retailer. It provides specialized pricing, merchandising allowances and rebate programs to its members, while leveraging the clout of parent organization BrandSource to provide a wide range of general business services.
