Nationwide Marketing Group (NMG) announced a partnership with high-end audio and mount producer Kanto, bringing their high-quality, luxury audio solutions to NMG dealers.
“Kanto’s products stand out for their quality and performance,” said Hank Alexander, director of Home Technology Specialists Nationwide (HTSN) said in a statement. “With both form and function in mind, these products will give our dealers the opportunity to change the conversation around both mounting solutions and the home desktop audio experience.”
With more consumers today used to the concept of working and learning from home, attention has shifted from simply accommodating that lifestyle to finding mays to maximize the experience. Getting by simply won’t do. Creating a professional-grade setup with quality products that won’t let them down should be the standard. From high-end audio solutions to luxury mounts and stands, Kanto promises to deliver a high level of quality to Nationwide Marketing Group’s network of retailers.
Nationwide’s membership had the opportunity to learn more about Kanto during the October Virtual PrimeTime show.
“We were brand new to Nationwide in October, so we only got to experience a very little bit of the PrimeTime event,” said Bill Poteet, senior account executive for Kanto in a statement. “Even though it was a virtual meeting, you could really feel the enthusiasm from the membership. We can’t wait to participate in one fully and get to engage with all of the dealers.”
Kanto’s mounting lineup includes floor-stand, full-motion, fixed, outdoor, tilting, fireplace, ceiling, recessed, corner and projector mounts, among many others. Retailers will also find TV carts, AV shelves, phone and tablet stands, and other A/V accessories.
On the audio side, Kanto boasts a powerful lineup of desktop and bookshelf speakers that are sure to elevate the look and performance of any home office setup. The speakers come in a variety of finishes that include several matte color options or a sleek bamboo or walnut option. Kanto also offers a powered subwoofer that packs a powerful punch, as well as several desktop and floor stands.
“Nationwide Marketing Group has roots in the very fabric of each community they serve. The roster of dealers is like a who’s who in the industry,” said Jeff Naidu, North American retail sales manager for Kanto in a statement. “One loyal customer, one great opportunity after another for the community they all serve. We have learned that our best results are achieved with partners who add real value, and Nationwide’s members are among the best when it comes to adding value. It is a humbling experience to be a part of the culture and have the opportunity to help serve those dealers and communities alongside some of the best retailers out there.”
O’Rourke Sales Company will be the exclusive distributor for the Kanto lineup.
“The versatility of Kanto’s premium mount lineup perfectly complements O’Rourke’s high-end TV and AV offerings,” says Andrew Terry, president of O’Rourke. “Additionally, with the growing work-from-home trend, Kanto’s high-end audio offerings will allow our dealers to offer an audio solution that will elevate the listening experience for their consumers without compromising on style. Kanto’s products are a perfect fit for O’Rourke Sales Company, and we are excited to add them to our offering.”
Kanto’s products are available now, and the brand will bring full representation to Nationwide’s next free Virtual PrimeTime event, which will be held March 16-18. Learn more at www.nationwideprimetime.com.
