Staying in Bloomfield also reaffirms our commitment to maintaining the core values that have made us the leading distributor of MI and Pro Audio solutions — a customer-centric focus, a commitment to exceed our customers’ every expectations, and our determination to always provide the broadest range of high value added products, programs, training, and service support.”
