New York (September 13, 2005)–It seems that Borders Books & Music stores are popping up every other day–certainly there have been new additions to the chain over the last four months in Timonium, MD; Tualatin, OR; Middletown, NY; and Charlotte, NC. Those stores also all sport dbx ZonePRO audio systems controller, each time installed by audio/video multimedia design and installation company Pro-Motion.
The ZonePRO was chosen as the sole system to control background music, overhead paging and music-on-hold for the stores’ telephone systems. Additional stores will be fitted with the ZonePRO by Pro-Motion as the 1,200-store chain opens new locations.
“The dbx ZonePRO has become our template for zone audio control, at the Borders stores and every other installation environment for which it’s appropriate,” explained Lynn Matson, president and CEO of Pro-Motion, which in less than four years has grown to over $30 million in revenues from its design/install work. Also contributing to revenue is Pro-Motion’s work as a distributor of systems components and products from its 65,000-square-foot headquarters and warehouse in Wixom, MI. “The ZonePRO is reliable, functional and easy to operate and install. We do all the programming here at the facility and send it to the project site ready to install, which saves a substantial amount of time and effort.”
Pro-Motion, which has done audio/video design/install projects for clients including TGI Fridays, Fossil, American Eagle Outfitters, Target and Wal-Mart, has found in the ZonePRO what Pro-Motion Chief Engineer Chris Hill describes as “our number-one audio solution for installed commercial systems, the basis for all of our zoned audio system designs, for all of the Borders stores going forward and for every other zone-audio installation.”
