Azione Welcomes Vendors, Accepting DealersJanuary 31, 2012
Richard Glikes' new buying group, Azione Unlimited, on Tuesday unveiled its first 20 vendor partners, while also announcing that it is now accepting dealer members.
The new vendors include: Sonance, Revel, Canton, Monitor Audio, JL Audio, Integra, Stewart, Epson, Digital Projection, IC Realtime, Lexicon, SurgeX, Perfect Path, Salamander Designs, Certified Cyber Solutions, Liberty Wire & Cable, and JBL Synthesis. More will be announced in the coming weeks, Glikes said, with a full picture expected by April 1.
Video, Glikes said, will be handled through distribution partners fulfilling products from Sharp, Panasonic, Samsung, LG, and Panasonic Professional.
"It is an honor to have vendor members join a group that stands for something more than ' deal,'" Glikes said in a statement. "We will be as much an 'education group' as we are a buying group.
"Sharing execution excellence in free member meetings, exceptional marketing, and aiding in vendor relationships are part of our value proposition that I believe will over the next year catapult us to the preeminent position. We are now accepting members with a goal of having 150 by year end.”
