Almo’s Double-Digit Annual Growth Prompts Expansion of Nationwide Distribution Network

Philadelphia, PA – July 9, 2012: Almo Corporation, the major national consumer and professional electronics and appliance distributor, released its fiscal 2012 results during the most recent quarterly board meeting, and the company reported an overall double digit revenue increase over fiscal 2011, which marks the 10th straight year of double digit compounded growth. In addition, the company has expanded its nationwide distribution network as a result of the recent addition of several major appliance product lines and continued growth in the Fulfillment and Pro Audio/Visual channels.

An integral part of the distribution network expansion includes the addition of a distribution center in Reno, Nevada while also enlarging the footprint of several existing distribution centers throughout the country, such as Dallas, Texas and Columbus, Ohio. Almo’s growth, coupled with recent exclusive distribution agreement wins, made the choice to expand its distribution network an easy one.

“Our unwavering commitment to providing our dealers with the best products in a timely fashion has placed us in the rapid growth category in this otherwise unstable economy,” said Warren Chaiken, Almo President and COO. “With this marked growth pattern and upcoming opportunities, it’s necessary that we ensure our facilities and services remain top-notch.”

According to Almo Professional A/V Executive Vice President and COO Sam Taylor, “The Pro A/V division had another record year with 50 percent growth year-over-year. It’s because of our continued focus on education for our sales team and our reseller partners that we’ve achieved this amazing growth, which is a validation of our approach to this market.”
