Pioneer Music Company (PMC) today announced the expansion of its distribution facilities in Elk Grove Village, IL. The century-and-a-half-old company serves the distribution needs of various audio, video, surveillance, networking, and remote management products. This latest facility in the Chicago metro area builds on PMC’s history of success with an additional 20,000 square feet of warehouse space and a training facility capable of accommodating over 50 attendees.
“The role of the distributor is changing faster than ever before, and we’ve invested in that change,” says PMC Vice President and sixth-generation owner, Alec Haight. “The last five years we strategically expanded our footprint in the Central Midwest. After refining operations and introducing more automation and value-add services to our business, we are beyond excited to scale our vision into the Northern Midwest market, starting with welcoming the local Chicago dealers to our family.”
Haight says the expansion is a result of their increased investment and commitment to the custom integration channel. PMC’s Elk Grove Village location will provide local dealers with flexible logistics support and same-day product availability, all within an open shopping format where customers are free to browse aisles of products. Dealers will also appreciate PMC’s self-service app, communications service, and live-inventory website with bill payment.
“The support from our vendor partners has been a huge driver for our expansion into this market,” Haight adds. “We sincerely believe in our value-add strategy to the custom integration channel, and it is rewarding to see our vendors share that belief. We’re proud to offer our services to the local dealers with a local team of experts under the leadership of industry veteran, Mike Baginski. Our company is already benefitting from the addition of top-notch personnel, vendor support, and dealer activity in the area. It is an exciting time to be in our industry, and we feel that excitement here at Pioneer Music.”
