Vaddio has announced that it will be fully operational through the Milestone EMEA headquarters in the Netherlands, as of January 2017, following its purchase by Milestone in April.
"Adding Vaddio to our leading portfolio of commercial and consumer AV brands gives us the opportunity to deliver even greater value to our combined dealer base," said Scott Gill, CEO of Milestone AV Technologies. "We are excited to further expand our product and service offerings. Vaddio and Milestone share not just a heritage of successful growth in Minnesota – the businesses both focus on making technology work for our customers with an unrivalled combination of installer-focused innovation supported by exceptional service."
Vaddio products will be stocked at Milestone’s Netherlands location for greater and faster availability in the EMEA regions. Vaddio solutions will be supported in EMEA by extensive regional sales management teams who will support the brand locally. EMEA customers therefore will have one contact for Chief, Projecta, Da-Lite and Vaddio solutions. The EMEA headquarters will also provide technical support, design and project specification assistance, as well as a marketing team to help related activities throughout the channel.
"In the past years, our Pro AV Distributor and System Integrator partners have identified, while specifying Chief, Projecta and Da-Lite products, a trend in the growing number of requests for unified communication and collaboration products," said Robin Deen, sales director EMEA. "Vaddio brings our customers exactly that. The Vaddio tagline, The Art-of-Easy, is well deserved and fits in perfectly with our easy to install philosophy at Milestone."
