The Elite Distributor Alliance (EDA) announced that VOXX, Fortin and Kleinn Automotive have joined the group as new vendor partners.
They join EDA’s five other vendors, Metra (accessories), Race Sport Lighting (automotive lighting), Atrend (subwoofer enclosures), Scorpion (window film) and FIT (OE integration products)
Fortin supplies remote start systems including its EVO bypasses; VOXX offers security, remote start, mobile video and other auto products. Kleinn Automotive Accessories offers air horn products.
Elite launched about 13 months ago to form the first distributor group in car audio. Its 10 distributor members provide their vendors with a group commitment to inventory purchases in exchange for a discount. This allows distributors to stock a better flow of inventory and pass better margins onto retailers, it said.
EDA’s president Josh Eatherly of P&E Distributors, said “Business is not necessarily getting harder or easier BUT it is changing and I submit that the EDA is helping to manage the changes to the positive for all in the supply chain.”
The EDA is member owned. For more information contact Ray Windsor at 949-249-8184 or [email protected].
