Catalyst AV Member Mid-State Distributing Moves Location, Nearly Triples Capacity

Extra space helps supply dealers struggling with supply chain issues

Catalyst AV member, Mid-State Distributing, the preeminent distributor in the midwest, is moving their Broadview, Chicago location to 2741 S. 21st Ave, Broadview, Chicago, literally around the corner from the old location, but that is where the similarity ends.

“We are moving to a 21,000 facility,” said Jeff Hedden, President, Mid-State Distributing. “That is nearly triple the square footage of our last building! Beyond a fully renovated showroom, the increased stock space will allow us to help buffer some of the current supply chain struggles by keeping additional inventory so dealers can get what they need, when they need it, no matter if it’s shipped, picked up or delivered to their business or jobsite. Additionally, for the home side, we will be constructing a dedicated demo room to showcase our ELAC, Sonance and Martin Logan speakers along with the HEOS offerings from Denon and Marantz.”

The new facility will be fully operational on Friday, September 17, at:

2741 S. 21st Ave
Broadview, Chicago, IL 60155

“This is typical of our Catalyst AV members,” added Helge Fischer, Catalyst AV Executive Director, ”to be constantly improving their businesses to help make their dealers’ lives easier.”

Mid-State Distributing serves ND, SD, MN, MO, IA, NE, KS, WI, IL. With multiple stocking warehouse locations to support their dealers: Des Moines, IA (headquarters); Fargo, ND; Omaha, NE; and Menomonee Falls, WI.
