In March, Snap One marked five years since the beginning of establishing a nationwide network of local stores catering specifically to the custom integration and security markets.
“When we began acquiring regional distributors and opening new stores organically in 2018,” said Bill Zidek, Snap One VP of Sales. “We knew our dealer partners would benefit from having same day availability and a streamlined process for acquiring all of their favorite brands in one location. With more than 40 locations and 38 training centers in North America, we provide our partners across the country not only superior access to products but also improved educational resources and support. Our regularly scheduled training on the latest products and technology help partners and their teams stay knowledgeable and up-to-date.”
Following the acquisitions of regional distributors Allnet, MRI, Volutone, Custom Plus, Staub Distributing, Electronic Lane and HCA distribution, Snap One rebranded the existing physical locations and built an experienced local management team that spent the next several years successfully launching 20 additional local stores in new and underserved markets.
“One of the most important aspects of this endeavor has been extending our investment into previously unserved regions such as Cleveland or Boise, where demand was present but a lack of distribution forced integrators to plan far in advance for deliveries and complicated job scheduling,” said Zidek. “We’ve changed the entire procurement process for our partners across the country, making thousands of in-demand products available at a moment’s notice while providing product training and direct support to help integrators find the right products and land more jobs. Access to inventory over the last few years has been a major pain point for our partners and we have worked hard to ensure adequate inventory levels and remain a reliable supplier of the industry's favorite brands.”
