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 60
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.
