Philadelphia, PA — January 14, 2019 — Almo Professional A/V, the Pro AV industry’s Favorite Distributor, today unveiled it is the exclusive U.S. distributor for Ecler Audio Products. As a result, Almo partners now have access to the complete line of Ecler speakers, audio players, matrixes, amplifiers and audio accessories.
The Ecler line of audio products rolls up into Almo’s Sound Options dedicated audio sourcing and technical engineering group. Ecler is exhibiting in the Sound Options booth during Almo’s award-winning E4 education, networking and product showcase, which stops in Chicago in March and Los Angeles in April.
“Ecler is a respected global audio company entering the U.S. market for the first time in its 53-year history,” explained Rob Ziv, director of business development for Almo Professional A/V. “The combination of Ecler and Almo together creates a unique opportunity for Pro AV integrators to access the audio quality, product mix, support, price points, and business model needed to compete for projects across multiple vertical markets.”
“Almo is the only distributor with the capacity and expertise necessary to bring this revered brand to the U.S. market,” Ziv added. “Since Almo is the exclusive source for Ecler in North America, integrators can recommend the audio brand with confidence knowing their install base includes global roll-outs for end-users such as Cartier, Bulgari, and Burberry, along with countless corporate spaces, houses of worship, sporting venues, hotels, bars, and restaurants.”
According to Ramón Macías, sales area manager for Ecler Audio Products, “Almo is one of the most reputable AV distribution companies in the U.S. with an excellent customer base and a strong national presence. Our companies share mutual values, such as customer service, innovation and the importance of making a positive and impactful contribution to the business success of our customers.”
Macias expects that the accessibility of Ecler products through Almo Pro A/V will bring the U.S. Pro AV community new options for their projects. “We are proud of our European origin and our tradition of investing a significant portion of our earnings into R&D so we can offer an extensive, sustainable product line for full audio installations.”
