Vendor View: Controlling Interests
From its inception as a volume-control manufacturer 43 years ago to the launch this year of the Collage Powerline Media and Intercom system aimed at the retrofit market, it's been a long journey for Russound. And now, with last year's acquisition of automation and control technology company Colorado vNet, Russound has set the stage for growth in a rapidly changing custom installation market.
"Colorado vNet helps us to take those steps we've tried to take for at least five years," Russound CEO, Charlie Porritt, said recently at the company's headquarters in Newmarket, N.H.
The Colorado vNet union with Russound makes sense because of a long string of complementary factors, said Petro Shimonishi, vice president of sales and marketing.
