Listen Technologies Corp., a designer, manufacturer and supplier of assistive listening solutions for more than 16 years, has added Miramar, Fla.-based firm, Herman Pro AV, as a distributor of its RF, IR and ListenPoint products nationwide. The announcement was made by Tim Schaeffer, Listen Technologies vice president of sales worldwide, and reflects the company’s growth and continued emphasis on new sales channels and end users, as well as its ongoing goal of raising awareness about hearing loss and assistive listening. Herman will be responsible for distributing Listen’s RF, IR and ListenPoint products across the continental U.S.
Schaeffer states: “We are very excited to add Herman Pro AV to our distribution network. Herman has a unique business model that particularly appealed to us. Unlike other distributors that emphasize the larger components of an install, Herman has its own niche, as it focuses on what could be considered the ‘integrator installation essentials’—the cable, connectivity and infrastructure products of an installation. This is an immensely helpful way to serve installation professionals, and also ties into its in-the-field labor arm, which is evolving and expanding the innovative ways in which it communicates with and services integrators.”
“We are very excited to partner with Listen Technologies. It is a designer and manufacturer that encompasses innovation and quality. This represents a significant addition to our product offering and an important category to better serve the needs of our customers,” says Jeffrey Wolf, executive vice president at Herman. “Our goal is to continue to identify product lines and value-added services that provide compelling value and benefit to the industry, while enabling our customers to rely on us for the products they need for their projects. The Listen partnership is an important milestone in our growth and value strategy to become the premier value provider to the commercial AV industry.”
