Edmond, Okla. - Petra Industries, distributor of CE, custom-installation products and mobile audio/video accessories, drew more than 100 dealers to its recent Pioneer Training Event.
Held at Petra's headquarters, here, during the week of Feb. 6, the distributor partnered with Pioneer to host this two-day event, which brought in dealers from the immediate five-state area.
Pioneer's Bob Coyle, district sales manager of the mobile business group, showcased all of Pioneer's 2012 models and provided Petra's dealers with training and selling tips to demonstrate and promote the value of all the models to end-user consumers.
"Petra always represents the 12-volt industry with a level of quality that puts them in a class of their own," said Coyle.

This quality time spent with Petra's dealers is invaluable from Pioneer's point of view."
