In-wall speaker company SpeakerCraft has received the Most Supportive Vendor Award from the Home Entertainment Source (HES). The US-based manufacturer says that it has been recognised for its work in building and expanding the capabilities of dealers around the world.
The AV speciality division of BrandSource, HES is an entirely member-owned, member-managed merchandising group with approximately 500 members. With annual sales in excess of £1.8 billion, HES ranks as one of the largest merchandising groups in the CE sector.
"Our partnership with SpeakerCraft has been rewarding, not only from a product standpoint but also from their willingness to provide inspiration, motivation and business acumen to our membership," said Jim Ristow, executive vice president at HES. "This is a company that gets what being a true business partner is all about."
SpeakerCraft president Jeremy Burkhardt added: "HES is an important collective of dealers who carry the flag for the audio/video specialist and are aggressive in establishing a clear differentiation between the independent home entertainment retailer and their mass-market counterparts. We are proud to be associated with them and are grateful they recognise our unique value in this equation."
