Stampede has announced that its operations in the US, Canada and Latin America are rebranding as Exertis, aligning with other DCC Technology owned companies around the world. According to the company’s President and CEO, Kevin Kelly, going forward the newly renamed company will, beginning with Exertis ProAV, operate a series of specialist Exertis brands focused on the commercial AV and mobile-living channels.
“This is the beginning of a well-thought-out and financed strategy to reshape the landscape of 21st century distribution and supply chain management in ways that create significant new value for our manufacturer and reseller partners,” Kelly said.
“Each of these markets has unique business requirements that only Exertis will be able to meet, locally and globally, by providing specific products and solutions tailored to each specialist market,” Kelly added. “This move signals the start of an exciting new era in specialist focused, value added distribution on a global scale, an era built on specialists that are laser focused on targeted pro AV and mobile-living categories, in addition to ongoing businesses in drones, retail, and soon gaming and enterprise.”
For vendors, this means the company now has the ability to reach to every market in the world and provide faster service. For resellers, it means increased access to brands, products, programs and support.
“The pro AV industry has grown exponentially across all verticals for the last 10 years and, despite the challenges posed by the current COVID pandemic, the industry will continue growing again in 2021, driven by an insatiable human need to connect and collaborate through the technologies, products and solutions that our manufacturer partners create every day,” Kelly concluded. “Now, Exertis’ vast financial resources and logistics capabilities will empower our partners to reach more customers, more efficiently and more profitably than ever before.”
