Fort Worth, Texas – ProSource, the $4.5 billion A/V and custom integration buying group, has added 29 custom integrators to its 500-plus-member ranks.
The new additions include five so-called “Power CI” members, a tier that comprises the group’s largest custom integrators with annual sales of $4 million or more. They include Acadian Custom Installations, BlueSpeed AV, Home Pro, Maxicon and Smart Systems Technologies.
The balance of new members is classified as ProSource Custom Integrators, a tier that’s reserved for those with annual sales of at least $1 million, but less than $4 million.
ProSource membership director Sherry Dantonio said the 29 recruits represent “a broad range of both young and seasoned businesses with a strong skill set ranging from traditional CE/CI to IT backgrounds.
“Everyone benefits as the dealers share their skill sets and learn from one another,” she said.
The expansion follows last week’s formal confirmation of a new associate membership tier that’s presently comprised of six big-box powerhouse dealers from the NATM Buying Corp.
ProSource is the specialty CE and custom integration wing of the $13 billion BrandSource buying group, which serves independent appliance, electronics and home furnishings dealers.
The group will gather next week for ProSource’s annual spring meeting, which runs June 1-5 in San Antonio, Texas. Check TWICE.com for updates from the event.
