Mobile Electronics Roundtable
PL: The one thing we're looking for from the retailers is commitment and cooperation in growing this program, because [it] is put in place for manufacturers to make sure products are being installed correctly, but it's also for the retailers, so we can raise the bar.
LI: I see the face of our retailer changing drastically. Wal-Mart is getting into some respectable name brands, and I also see there's a direction from some of our large retailers to shorten the supply chain and go directly to China or wherever and bring product in. As an industry, we have to make sure that we continue to lead in safety and develop quality products. [We should] make sure we're not dragged down by bringing a lower-priced and lesser-quality product to our consumers, and [assure] that we always travel the higher road, setting the standard for the overall industry.
