Chester Springs, Pa. — Azione Unlimited, the education and buying group for custom retailers and integrators, has pumped up it member roster to 95 with the recent addition of World Premiere of Mechanicsburg, Pa., as well as Osbee of Harrison, N.Y., and Premier Media Technologies of Destin, Fla.
“Our numbers are very healthy and dynamic with our dealers employing 1,295 individuals, sales of $295,000,000, and the best number of all being 85 percent of our dealer members have never been in a group before. On our vendor member side, we have delivered a whopping 27 percent year-over-year growth on average,” said Richard Glikes, president of Azione Unlimited.
“Dealers and vendors are happy,” Glikes continued. “Next on the horizon is our fall conference Oct. 8-10 in Austin, Texas, where the focus will be on improving operational excellence. We continue to deliver a unique formula to our members. With a ‘best in class’ vendor lineup, including Sonance, Kaleidescape, Christie, Middle Atlantic, Coastal Source, Liberty, Savant and Triad, we give our dealers the opportunity to offer the finest brands to their clients.”
Darrell Taylor of Premier Media Technologies commented, “The decision to join Azione was a two-fold move. First, the obvious value received in a group-buying position with multiple respected suppliers creates an inherent cost advantage. Second, the collaboration between Azione's members establishes a synergistic environment of non-competitive dealers in the industry that improves every facet of our business.”
