PACIFIC, MO, July 17, 2013 — Products from Lowell Manufacturing Company, a U.S. manufacturer of professional A/V products for over 65 years, have become a leading choice for contractors and system integrators nationwide. From boardrooms and professional multimedia areas to arenas and houses of worship, educational facilities, theaters and other fixed installation projects, Lowell rack, power and audio products continue to be specified by high-profile audio/video professionals.
“My relationship with Lowell Manufacturing actually began with my father being friends with company founder Ben Lowell, so I not only have a business relationship, but a long-term personal relationship with the company,” stated Mark Schultz, Systems Engineer for Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Parson Technology, a leading system integrator that established its business in 1927. “As a system integrator designing and installing audio visual and voice data, as well as security systems for healthcare, houses of worship, casinos and gaming, retail stores, sports complexes and hotels and resorts, we employ Lowell equipment racks and ceiling speakers on most of the projects we do for our clients. Lowell has an extremely wide selection of products that not only are high quality and cost effective, but they also have convenient features that are not available from other manufacturers.”
DeWayne Rains, Vice President of Operations for Nashville, Tennessee-based Audio Electronics, Inc. (AEI), a full service Audio/Visual Company specializing in providing national retail, restaurant and hospitality clients with customized In-Store Music & Messaging Networks and Digital Signage solutions, echoes Schultz’s comments: “I’ve been working with Lowell for many years and specify their rolling floor racks, wall-mount racks and shelves, and wall-mount and rackmount volume controls for a variety of installations. The fact that their products are made in America is always important to us, plus John Lowell and his team take great pride and care in what they do — and that comes through when you get a Lowell product. Their customer service is second-to-none. I can order a rack for one of my clients like JCPenney, Cracker Barrel or O’Charley’s and have it the next day. That’s customer service.”
“We’ve standardized our installations using Lowell racks and accessories,” stated Jon Baker, President of Springfield, Missouri-based Audio Acoustics, a leading installer of premium sound and video systems since 1968 specializing in commercial audio/video, health care and education market sectors. “We use several types of their eight-inch ceiling speakers, including the LT series, for music and paging. We’ve been working with Lowell for over 10 years because they offer an extremely comprehensive range of quality products that we feel sound good, install easily and are competitively priced. When you compare the quality of a Lowell product to other choices on the market, with Lowell, you are getting a real value in every sense of the word. Additionally, they offer great customer support, are very responsive and truly understand our needs as a system integrator.”
