HES Selects Panamax/Furman Sound as Vendor Partner for Power Management

PETALUMA, Calif. — Jan. 8, 2008 — Panamax/Furman Sound, a world-leading provider of AC power management solutions, today announced that Home Entertainment Source (HES), a group of specialty consumer electronics independent dealers, has selected the company as a vendor partner to provide members with power management solutions. The partnership expands Panamax/Furman‘s distribution network while providing HES members with full access and exclusive pricing on the company‘s complete offering of advanced power management technologies.

With 500 members nationwide, HES is a fully integrated dealer network offering buying group programs, exclusive products and services, and products/sales training that support independent dealers with an annual volume range of $1 to $25 million. By adding Panamax/Furman as a vendor partner, HES is offering its members special programs and demo opportunities.

“Panamax/Furman offers a complete line of equipment to address every A/V power management application,” said Jim Ristow, general manager of HES. “The addition of Panamax/Furman to our line of high-quality vendors will enable our members to offer their customers the leading power conditioning and surge protection equipment available to get the best performance from their systems.”

Panamax and Furman Sound have been recognized names in power management for more than 30 years, with products that improve performance and protect electronic equipment. Panamax/Furman solutions ensure that electricity powering the delicate electronics inside home appliances, computers, telephones, and A/V equipment is clean and safe. Home theater equipment is particularly susceptible to damage caused by surges and to distortion caused by power contamination. So as home theaters have become more popular, Panamax/Furman products have become more essential in protecting sensitive components and ensuring optimal audio and video quality.

“We are proud that HES has recognized Panamax/Furman as a leader in power management by naming us as a vendor partner, and we feel this partnership will offer new opportunities for both HES and our company,” said Dave Keller, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Panamax and Furman. “For HES members, this means greater accessibility to the technology that ensures an optimal A/V experience for the end user. For us, the HES relationship helps us to reach new dealers, increase sales, and continue to brand Panamax/Furman Sound as the country‘s preeminent power management company.”
