Eagan, Minn. - Capitol, CE distributor for dealers, residential systems specialists and light commercial contractors, has added Wilson Electronics to its lineup.
Based in St. George, Utah, Wilson designs and manufactures cellphone signal boosters.
"The addition of Wilson Electronics and its complete line of cellular signal boosters presents a tremendous opportunity for many of our customers, especially those whose market includes areas where cellular service is known to be unreliable," said Jeff Kussard, strategic development director of Capitol.
Wilson Electronics provides signal boosting solutions for a variety of cellphones and cellular devices to help end users overcome the problem of dropped calls, limited range, and slow data rates for cellphones and data cards. Available in easy-to-use plug-and-play kits as well as customizable configurations to suit any application, the company's boosters not only pick up and amplify weak cellular signals, but they also transmit a more powerful signal back to the tower, the distributor said.
"Wilson Electronics has wasted no time embracing our new partnership," added Kussard. "They eagerly agreed to be front and center at the upcoming CLI Expo."
In addition to Wilson Electronics, the current list of 2012 CLI Expo participants include Panasonic, Toshiba, Actiontec, Atlas Sound, Coleman, D-Tools, DVDO, EnGenius, Gefen, Harman Pro, iPort/Sound Advance, KEF, Lutron, Middle Atlantic, Mitsubishi, Monster, NEC, Niles, Onkyo, Panamax, Peerless, Pinnacle, QSC, Russound, Sanus, Sherwood, Shure, Universal Remote Control, Vutec, Xantech and ZeeVee.
The 2012 CLI Expo will be held on April 29-30 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Bloomington, Minn., which is located just 10 minutes from the St. Paul/Minneapolis International Airport. Registration and additional information can be found at
