The PowerHouse Alliance has expanded its distribution locations across the country, with seven new warehouses – five locations are open now, and two are set to open in Q1 2021. With the addition of seven locations, the 11 distributor members will stock 55 locations in total across the continental U.S, enabling access in aggregate to more than 250 A/V, networking, smart home and security brands from a total of 50 countrywide locations.
PowerHouse Alliance members, the announcement continues, have adapted to this year’s increase in demand for home entertainment systems, networking equipment, home office technology solutions and home control systems by taking on new in-demand brands and products, with stocked warehouses with online ordering, curbside pick-up, and other safe purchasing methods allowing dealers to get immediate access to the products they need for any job. The new locations offer closer access and more pick-up and shipping options for mounts, racks, TVs, speakers, and other residential, commercial, and security lines offered by PowerHouse Alliance members.
Member Pioneer Music Company added a facility in Lenexa, Kans., member ECD added a warehouse in San Antonio, Texas, and member Mountain West opened a location in Seattle, Wash. Ui Supplies now has a new location and corporate headquarters in Ramsey, N.J. (shown), and a new, larger location in Nashville, Tenn. has been added by 21st Century Distributing. Two additional locations are under construction and will open in Q1 2021. The PowerHouse Alliance will share more details closer to the launches, the statement said. “Despite the challenges that COVID-19 has presented to the industry, the PowerHouse Alliance has adapted and continued to grow and support dealers,” said Dennis Holzer, executive director for the PowerHouse Alliance. “Now, with seven additional locations, more dealers across the country have immediate and safe access to all of the products and brands they need to complete any job – right when they need them, whether through same-day or next-day delivery, curbside pick-up, or 24-hour will call. Our brand portfolio and locations enable us to support dealers as they take on new installations and homeowners’ needs this year. Additional locations will further smooth their daily operations.”
