Pioneer Music Company, a 153-year-old distributor of audio, video, surveillance, networking, and remote management products for professional integrators, announces the grand opening of a new location in the Minneapolis, MN metro area. Located in Bloomington, Minnesota. the new facility features self-shopping, 24-hour pickup, and a training facility that can accommodate more than 50 attendees.
According to PMC CEO and sixth-generation owner, Alec Haight, the expansion happens after large investment to enhance the company’s commitment to the custom integration channel.
“The role of the distributor is changing faster than ever before, and we’ve invested in that change. This expansion into Minnesota comes less than one year after the opening of our location in Elk Grove Village, IL,” says Haight. “We are beyond excited to continue to scale our vision into the Northern Midwest market, and enjoy some snow while doing so.”
PMC’s newest facility provides local dealers flexible logistics support and same-day product availability, in an open shopping format where customers can freely browse aisles of products. The location is complete with a 24-hour will-call room and an indoor loading area to make sure Minnesota weather never stands in the way of business. Local dealers will also benefit from PMC’s self-service app, communications service, and live-inventory website with bill payment.
“The support from our vendor partners has been a huge driver for our expansion into this market. We sincerely believe in our value-add strategy to the custom integration channel, and it is rewarding to see our vendors share that belief,” Haight said.
