Under The Hood...

Diamond Notes from our Skipper on the ever changing world of AV

    As many of you know, Atlona was acquired by Panduit earlier this year. After the standard assurances that "nothing will change", Atlona has made the decision to go a different direction in the western part of the country and we are no longer representing the brand.
    The founder, Ilya Khayn was and still is an inspiration to us. He built a brand from literally starting in his bedroom, and eventually was able to sell his company and fully realize the American Dream. When we say "we wish him luck in his future endeavors", this time we actually mean it. We suspect that our participation in Atlona's growth had something to do with the ultimate sale of the company, and we take a lot of pride in helping a company like Atlona get to this position in the market, even if it ended in an unfortunate decision.
    So farewell, Atlona. Please remember, that although the independent rep business seems tumultuous, it really isn't. We are nearing our twentieth year as your QSC rep, and over thirty years with Community Professional. And from our founding firms as Brian Trankle and Associates, as well as Loppnow and Associates, we have been in business since 1981. The names have changed, but our commitment to our customers, many of which we have served for the entirety of our existence is unwavering.
