Buffalo, N.Y. — Stampede, a distributor of presentation and home theater technology, will now distribute Panasonic professional displays in the United States.
Stampede Canada has been distributing Panasonic Canada displays for years, but this new agreement marks the first time Stampede will be able to offer Panasonic products to its U.S. dealers, the distributor said.
“As the leading value-added distributor in North America, Stampede was a natural choice to represent our displays in the U.S.,” said Andrew Nelkin, president, Panasonic Professional Display Company in a prepared statement. “Stampede has shown time and again to be more than just a distributor. They are in the business of educating dealers about products and helping them succeed. We are proud to have them represent Panasonic displays in the United States.”
Kevin Kelly, president and COO, Stampede, said, “Our American dealers are going to be thrilled with the Panasonic’s professional displays. From now on when we spec jobs for our dealers we are going to be able to pull recommendations from Panasonic’s line of high-quality cutting-edge displays like the amazing new PD 12 series, hitting the market” this month.
Panasonic’s Professional Display line will be highlighted in the 2009 edition of Stampede’s Big Book of AV.
