Rockleigh, N.J. - Crestron has signed an agreement with AVAD to sell its line to the distributors' custom electronics and CE dealer customers.
Through this partnership with AVAD, Crestron is now bringing
home technology to a new market, reaching millions of consumers, by supplying authorized AVAD dealers with the latest entertainment and control systems, the companies said in a release.
The new promotion and increased consumer market penetration will help broaden awareness and strengthen the demand for custom home installation.
"This partnership is very exciting, not only for Crestron and AVAD, but for the whole industry," said Randy Klein, Crestron executive VP. "Both companies have tremendous resources and are completely committed to success. With our products and AVAD's sales channels, we are confident we will expand and develop the marketplace and the industry."
Only qualified AVAD dealers will be authorized to sell the select line of Crestron home control products. Crestron and AVAD will evaluate dealers based on available resources and their capability to fully support the line and home owners. Qualified dealers will be required to install their own demonstration systems and complete onsite training offered by AVAD and Crestron.
"Being able to offer Crestron products to our dealer base is an extension of our commitment to provide custom installers with the industry's most innovative products and brands," said Jim Annes, VP/GM of AVAD.
Both companies said more details about the product rollout will be forthcoming in the next 30 days.
