LUMINEX Network Intelligence expands in the US with new sales management partners, agents and distributors across the country. LUMINEX manufactures ruggedized, easy to use Ethernet switches for the commercial and entertainment industries and validated by many of the protocols and standards used today.
Pro AV manufacturers’ rep firm Techrep Marketing (www.techrepmarketing.com) has become the first company in the US to represent LUMINEX in Michigan and the Ohio Valley. “We were very lucky to get the Techrep Marketing team to join the LUMINEX camp,” says Hugo Larin, National Director/America for LUMINEX. “They offer a great dynamic since the leading products and technologies they carry include QSC. LUMINEX is a recommended network switch for Q-LAN protocol.”
“We are very excited to represent LUMINEX in the Ohio Valley,” says Karl McBryde, Vice President of Sales at Techrep Marketing. “LUMINEX is a leader in providing network technology for AV applications. They understand the convergence between the AV and IT worlds. We look forward to adding their network technology to our current AV offerings.”
LUMINEX also appointed Camano Distributing (www.CamanoUSA.com) as its new sales management partner west of the Mississippi. LUMINEX products will continue to be available through dealers, who will now be supported locally by Camano Distributing’s western reps. “Reps include Camano (Northern California and Pacific Northwest), MacWest (Southern California), Warman (Rocky Mountain), Cowser (Texas), Cadon (Kansas) and Thor (Minnesota).
“Even though Camano Distributing is a new company, its President, John Garbutt, is not new to the industry,” says Larin. “I’m pleased that his expertise is now available to help us in the very important western markets.”
“I’m delighted that LUMINEX has chosen to be represented by Camano Distributing,” s ays John Garbutt. “I’ve known the LUMINEX people and products for some time and am eager to work with them as we grow the brand. LUMINEX is symbiotic with Pivitec [network audio], and I believe both brands will benefit from Camano Distributing’s joint representation.”
In addition, LUMINEX has also named Midwest AV Group (www.mw-av.com) to handle eastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
Larin adds that, “It’s no secret to those in the Midwest that Patrick McNulty and Barbara Sjodin from Midwest AV Group have high standards and are great at supporting their dealers. This is what we strive for at LUMINEX and why we believe in our joint association.”
