Winston-Salem, N.C. - Specialty Electronics Nationwide (SEN), the custom install division of the Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG), has added Anthem Electronics as a preferred vendor partner.
According to SEN executive director Jeannette Howe, Anthem's line of separates and projectors, plus its new Blu-ray Disc player and forthcoming receiver series, will complement the loudspeaker line from sister brand Paradigm, another SEN preferred vendor partner.
"The combination of Paradigm speakers and Anthem receivers will provide our dealer members a high-performance/high-value audio solution," Howe said.
Added Bob McConnell, U.S. national sales manager for Anthem and Paradigm: "Only the independent A/V specialist can offer consumers the choice of excellence in performance and presentation, and we hope to support you every step of the way."
Both brands will exhibit at the next SEN/Nationwide PrimeTime! buying show and conference, to be held at the Gaylord National Resort near Washington, Aug. 15-18.
NMG is the umbrella organization for a number of buying groups, including Nationwide, serving majap and mainstream CE dealers; RentDirect, serving the rent-to-own market; and Furniture Smart, serving independent furniture dealers. Together with SEN, the groups represent more than 3,000 independent dealers, more than 8,000 store locations and $12 billion in annual sales.
