Philadelphia-based Almo Professional A/V, a distributor of professional audio and visual equipment, announces that it has acquired certain assets of NewComm Distributing, the distribution arm of manufacturing representative NewComm Technologies of Lititz, Pennsylvania.
As a result of the acquisition, Almo Pro A/V is now sourcing all of NewComm’s ClearOne inventory, while giving former NewComm customers access to Almo’s more than 60 A/V brands, nine warehouse locations, its Sound Options dedicated audio sourcing and technical engineering group, and its revenue-generating managed services.
“This acquisition offers benefits for both our existing partners as well as former NewComm customers,” says Rob Ziv, director of business development for Almo. “Our existing partners now have a larger quantity of inventory to access in different locations throughout the nation. At the same time, former NewComm customers can now take advantage of all Almo Pro A/V has to offer to increase profits and margin, such as products from the top AV brands, and business-expanding services like content creation for digital signage, sourcing labor, control systems, ClearOne DSP mixer programming, and bandwidth service.”
“When we made the business decision to exit distribution, we wanted to make sure our customers would be taken care of by a reliable, well-stocked and technically-astute distributor,” says Alex Schouten, sales and dealer communication for NewComm Distributing. “Almo Pro A/V has a proven, secure path for these resellers and integrators with the benefit of ongoing opportunities for growth and profitability in the future.”
