To bring in to our organization such a dominant and successful company with such vertical integration and a profound reputation is thrilling. Their approach to the market was a perfect fit.
Hayward, CA (PRWEB) July 15, 2009
With continued strong growth in the furniture and major retail channels, Touchstone Home Products, Inc, today announced their entrance into the CEDIA marketplace. To implement their national sales strategy, Touchstone has announced it has signed an exclusive representative agreement with CIRA, LLC.
"We are pleased to have signed the agreement because it provides us with dedicated representatives across an important customer segment that we've long been interested in engaging on a larger scale. CIRA gives us instant access to experienced representatives across the country. Furthermore, CIRA embraces Touchstone's commitment to customer service and maintaining close, personalized relationships with Dealers," said Touchstone EVP of Sales, Mark Bradlee.
Mike Barrett, CIRA's Marketing Chairman, stated that "As a group, we intend to position Touchstone as THE TV Lift Cabinet leader on a national level. This was the perfect acquisition, as our goal is not to impede on legacy relationships all agencies have spent years developing, but to identify new and existing categories that are absent of category leadership." CIRA will elect one member as a "Line Champion" to coordinate communication, monitor growth, and facilitate group wide success.
Barrett wrapped his comments by stating, "To bring in to our organization such a dominant and successful company with such vertical integration and a profound reputation is thrilling. Their approach to the market was a perfect fit."
