Azione Unlimited Successfully Expands into Canada, Adds Eight World-Class Canadian Dealers
Chester Springs, PA – (August 13, 2019) – Azione Unlimited is proud to announce that eight Canadian dealers have formally joined the Smart Home Association following a prolific July 1st expansion north of the border. The new Canadian dealers exemplify Azione Unlimited’s mission to create a captive network of profitable, like-minded, and authoritative dealer-members who represent the future of the industry.
“We extended into Canada at the request of our vendors who were seeking stronger relationships with their top dealer partners,” said Richard Glikes, President of Azione Unlimited. “The end result will be to cultivate a parallel level of success and profitability that our U.S. dealers currently receive. I’m confident that our newly added eight Canadian dealers represent an exceptionally strong core to drive that message home, and this is only the beginning.”
The newly added Canadian dealers include –
- Hi-Fi Centre, Vancouver, BC
- La Scala Integrated Media, Vancouver, BC
- Symphonic Residential Systems, Calgary, AB
- High Definition Technologies, Calgary, AB
- Definitive Sound, Mississauga, ON
- Design Electronics, Niagara Falls, ON
- Station Earth, Fergus, ON
- London Audio, London, ON
Adding this new batch of top-tier dealer members has advanced the buying group total to 214 members.
Driven by Results
As the only buying group that provides membership to vendors, Azione Unlimited encourages continuous engagement between vendor principals and dealers to promote impactful business decisions. Employing that viewpoint, the expansion into Canada was formulated to bolster relationships between vendors and their Canadian partner. In turn, Azione Unlimited is able to bridge another industry pain point by building more potent connections.
“The philosophy behind our Canadian expansion is the same one employed when Azione Unlimited was founded – to build an organization that is focused on sharing education, trusting peers, and generating profits,” said Glikes. “This expansion is a natural progression. We are simultaneously bridging a gap between vendors and dealers while strengthening the knowledge being distributed. We recognize that education, training, and networking is a major driving factor to the success of our organization, and that starts by establishing partnerships within the group.”
As Azione Unlimited continues to serve the Canadian market, the buying group is actively underwriting Canadian specific vendor programs, including recently added vendors Maxaware and Breakthrough Lighting. The Smart Home Association now offers an industry-leading magnitude of custom integration focused buying programs to Canadian dealers, complimented by a host of services for lighting, operations, and fleet demands. The buying group has carefully elected programs that work with existing distributors and vendor representative programs, creating a frictionless path for new dealers to join the group.
“In creating our Canadian program, we are specifically engaging with the established market to produce an effortless transition for dealers who partner with Azione Unlimited,” said Patrick McCarthy, Director of New Business Development and Member Services. “We understand the importance of healthy industry partnerships. We are working tirelessly to serve Canadian dealers without disruption so they can be more profitable. It’s a model that has been very successful in the States and we are thrilled that it is resonating with our core of industry-leading Canadian members.”
