FT. LAUDERDALE, FL — December 28, 2004 — AVAD, America’s leading distributor of custom home technology, announced today that plans are underway for the inauguration of a new AVAD facility to better serve the needs of their great plains dealer base.

The new AVAD Great Plains branch is scheduled to open in Missouri next year.

“We are extremely excited to launch a new AVAD location in Missouri,” said Joe Piccirilli, managing director of AVAD. “The new branch will enable us to better serve our dealer base, and I’m certain that the addition of Shawn Dixon to the team will ensure AVAD Great Plains’ steady growth and success.”

With over sixteen years in the consumer electronics industry, Dixon brings vast distribution and retail experience to lead operations.
