THE EDGE DISTRIBUTORS GROUP TO CARRY PINNACLE SPEAKERS’ PRODUCT LINE
Seattle, WA – April 16, 2007 – The EDGE Distributors Group -- a rapidly growing service-oriented group of 14 independently owned regional distributors catering primarily to custom install and residential systems integrators -- today announced a new relationship with loudspeaker manufacturer Pinnacle Speakers.
Effective immediately, Pinnacle Speakers’ entire line-up of in-room, in-wall, in-ceiling, on-wall and outdoor residential loudspeakers will be available through The EDGE Group.
Mickey Rothenberg, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Pinnacle Speakers says, “EDGE and Pinnacle is a great match as Pinnacle positions itself as a high-end speaker brand and clearly the members of EDGE are widely recognized for their ability to sell upscale products. EDGE also has penetration in territories that we would like to develop."
Rothenberg added, “Pinnacle and EDGE have great synergy; both are comprised of private owners focused on providing the best possible customer service. The custom integrator wins by having access to a manufacturer and local distributor that share a management structure and business ethic similar to their own, with a strong focus on customer care.”
Mike Hench, President of The EDGE Group says, “Pinnacle's complete line of speakers, coupled with their great support, are a great fit for The EDGE Group. Pinnacle helps round out our assortment of great lines that offer our dealers excellent value, choice and profitability.“
The EDGE Group differs from other distribution groups in that it offers products that are of both a basic need and a unique niche for its dealers, typically employing a complementary line philosophy. The EDGE Group strategically selects the lines it carries, enabling the group to offer a full-suite of solutions to partners and dealers alike.
