A new national manufacturer’s representative firm has launched called Vault 12V Marketing.
The firm is led by three former DD Audio employees including Kevin Holden, a former Territory Manager for DD Audio, as well as Aaron Trimble and Douglas Dustmann. They plan to represent only brands that are protected from the Internet or regulated on the Internet to maintain profitability to the retailer.
As the firm is national, dealer orders are processed over the phone but dealers will generally receive visits two or more times a year, said Holden.
Vault represents the following brands:
Bluave: Excludes FL, TN, IL, IN, KY
DD Audio: Southeast, Southern Plains, Southwest and Pacific NW with few exclusions in those areas.
ProFit Enclosures: No exclusions
Soundz Bagger Audio: No exclusions
Audio Dynamics (AD Designs): No exclusions
DC Audio: No exclusions
Limitless Lithium: No exclusions
“Most of the brands we carry are protected online, and the ones that aren’t protected completely have agreed to be taken offline in the future or have a limited online role,” Holden said.
Holden worked at DD Audio for 7 years and owned his own shop in the past. He will be moving to Georgia to set up a base for Vault. Dustmann and Trimble are located in Oklahoma.
Vault is also working with an advertising partner to offer retailers help with digital advertising and website management and social media.
