AVAD Headquarters Goes West

AVAD Forms New Home Base of Operations in Southern California

Van Nuys, Calif. — Sept. 20, 2005 — AVAD, LLC, the preeminent U.S. distributor of custom home entertainment technology has established its new headquarters in Van Nuys , Calif. The move establishes a centralized headquarters for the company’s newly combined operations and growing national corporate staff.

AVAD combined its 11 separate operations previously joined by marketing and buying agreements into one company known as AVAD, LLC in July when it was acquired by global technology distributor, Ingram Micro. The team established at the new headquarters will lead the integration and growth efforts, and provide internal support to AVAD’s 28 distribution centers. The company will use the additional capital and resources gained from the acquisition to continue to expand its product portfolio and develop new services and training for custom low-voltage installers across the U.S.

“As we continue to strengthen the service to our more than 9,000 dealers, we’re setting down firm roots and a team in place who is focused on our future,” said Bob Gartland, president of AVAD. “We will ramp up the depth and breadth of our service package and expand our product offering and coverage into more cities to help our dealers take their businesses to the next level.”

AVAD remains committed to its proven strategy of raising the bar for quality across the entire custom installation industry, which has made AVAD the perfect partner to both dealers and vendors looking to grow. “We’ve got the resources and know-how throughout our company to make AVAD a world-class home technology distributor and partner for growth,” said Gartland.
