Pittsburgh, PA – February 21, 2019 – The PowerHouse Alliance announces the addition of five new vendor lines now available nationwide through its 12 distributor members, including Intellinet Network Solutions, LeakSmart, MantelMount, RTI, and TechLogix.
All product lines from each new vendor will join the 250-plus lines currently carried by PowerHouse Alliance distributors, available with will-call and online ordering from 43 warehouse locations across the country. Intellinet Network Solutions, MantleMount, and RTI extend options for networking, mounts, brackets, extenders, and home control devices, respectively, and TechLogix and LeakSmart expand PowerHouse into fiber and water detection categories.
“As home technology evolves, PowerHouse continues to add relevant products to give dealers choices as well as to expand our repertoire into the new categories they need,” said PowerHouse Alliance Executive Director Dennis Holzer. “With more networking choices and products like leak detectors and fiber, we’re making it simpler for dealers to source what they need for every unique project and as their clients request new features.”
“Smart homes and AV installs are on the rise, and Intellinet Network Solutions delivers value products that dealers can rely on,” said Sareet Majumdar, President for Intellinet. “With their 43-plus locations, the 12 PowerHouse Alliance members are strong, and we’re excited for this partnership to enhance the overall service and value installers provide to their customers.”
“LeakSmart is excited to partner with the PowerHouse Alliance,” said Gary Sternberg, director of sales, custom integration/OEM at LeakSmart. “As the majority of our success to date has occurred within the plumbing and HVAC markets, the PowerHouse members will enable us to have a larger presence in the custom integration channel via their strong dealer relationships and national distribution.”
“We started working with more than half of the PowerHouse members this past year and it has been a tremendous success, so growing our business relationship to include the entire group was an easy decision,” commented MantelMount Director of Sales Bill Boyer.
“RTI has had great distribution partnerships with many of the Powerhouse Alliance members for years,” said Ed McConaghay, CEO, RTI. “Across the board, their commitment to service and support excellence aligns perfectly with our dealer experience objectives and we’re proud to become an official PowerHouse Alliance vendor.”
“Fiber optics have become a necessary part of AV installations; however, very few integrators understand how to design and install end-to-end fiber-based systems,” commented Cameron Smith, co-founder and CEO for TechLogix. “The PowerHouse Alliance is a well-respected partner to help provide thought leadership, training and support to an industry hungry for fiber optic knowledge.”
