A/V distributor Almo forms alliance with NEC Display Solutions

Almo Corporation, a U.S. distributor of consumer and commercial electronics and appliances, announced that its new division, Almo Professional A/V, has signed on NEC Display Solutions of America. Based on the agreement, Almo now distributes NEC’s complete line of displays, projectors, whiteboards and vertical market turnkey packages.

Almo is the new employer of former Electrograph president Sam Taylor, who joined Almo after the company went into liquidation in June. Taylor recently announced his team of approximately 25 employees to various sales, marketing and product planning positions. The entire Almo Professional A/V sales team is InfoComm-trained and many sales representatives are CTS-certified.

Resellers will have the opportunity to see the latest NEC displays and projectors at Almo’s upcoming regional events in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Aug. 5 and in Bloomington, Minn., on Aug. 13. Each event will showcase the latest professional and consumer A/V products, feature an informational session about Almo Professional A/V, and provide an opportunity to meet the Midwest sales team at a networking event.

Almo’s strong focus on Pro A/V resellers, total years of employee experience and vast technical knowledge are attributes we consider significant for a distributor of NEC products. We look forward to a successful relationship with Almo that benefits our customers and the whole industry. – Pierre Richer, president and COO of NEC Display Solutions of America, Inc.

NEC is a technology leader and a trusted brand in the Pro A/V space. This alliance is important for our channel partners because of the accessibility they will now have to NEC’s rich product offering, which includes everything they need, from small- and large-format displays to portable and fixed installation projectors – and much more. – Sam Taylor, executive vice president and COO of Almo Professional A/V
