Nationwide Marketing Group has teamed up with Kanto Living to bring the company’s high-end audio solutions into its product mix. The collection of speakers, mounts, and stands will be distributed exclusively by O’Rourke Sales Company providing Nationwide Marketing Group’s network of retailers with further options for the new remote workers and learners in their customer base.
“Kanto’s products stand out for their quality and performance,” says Hank Alexander, director of Home Technology Specialists Nationwide (HTSN). “With both form and function in mind, these products will give our dealers the opportunity to change the conversation around both mounting solutions and the home desktop audio experience.”
Kanto’s mounting lineup includes floor-stand, full-motion, fixed, outdoor, tilting, fireplace, ceiling, recessed, corner and projector mounts, among many others. Retailers will also find many free-standing mount options like TV carts, AV shelves, phone and tablet stands, and other A/V accessories.
Kanto’s audio options, include a powerful array of desktop and bookshelf speakers that are cost-effective and modern, with incredible sound. The speakers come in a variety of finishes to match any aesthetic including several matte and wood options. Kanto also offers a powered subwoofer and desktop and floor stands to elevate the sound and look of the speakers.
“Nationwide Marketing Group has roots in the very fabric of each community they serve. The roster of dealers is like a who’s who in the industry,” says Jeff Naidu, North American retail sales manager for Kanto. “One loyal customer, one great opportunity after another for the community they all serve. We have learned that our best results are achieved with partners who add real value, and Nationwide’s members are among the best when it comes to adding value. It is a humbling experience to be a part of the culture and have the opportunity to help serve those dealers and communities alongside some of the best retailers out there.”
“The versatility of Kanto’s premium mount lineup perfectly complements O’Rourke’s high-end TV and AV offerings,” says Andrew Terry, president of O’Rourke. “Additionally, with the growing work-from-home trend, Kanto’s high-end audio offerings will allow our dealers to offer an audio solution that will elevate the listening experience for their consumers without compromising on style. Kanto’s products are a perfect fit for O’Rourke Sales Company, and we are excited to add them to our offering.”
Nationwide members had the opportunity to learn more about Kanto during the October Virtual PrimeTime show.
“We were brand new to Nationwide in October, so we only got to experience a very little bit of the PrimeTime event,” says Bill Poteet, senior account executive for Kanto. “Even though it was a virtual meeting, you could really feel the enthusiasm from the membership. We can’t wait to participate in one fully and get to engage with all of the dealers.”
Kanto’s products are available now, and the brand will bring full representation to Nationwide’s next free Virtual PrimeTime event, which will be held March 16-18.
