Metro Tech Reps signs a teaming agreement with ProAct Sales to represent Sonance Professional

New York, NY, (October 4, 2018) METRO TECH REPS –Metro Tech Reps marks its 2nd anniversary in business by announcing a teaming agreement with ProAct Sales to represent Sonance Professional in Metro NY. Sonance has been the leader in residential speakers used by the Custom Integration reseller for 35 years. Just over a year ago they announced their Professional Series which includes a range of 70V, 100V, 8 Ohm selectable In-Ceiling, Pendant and Surface Mount Speakers that deliver unequalled fidelity, extremely low distortion, wide dispersion and exceptional reliability. Customers are encouraged to continue to rely on their relationship with ProAct Sales or to begin working through Metro Tech Reps.

"Having known the name Sonance for most of my career, when ProAct Sales reached out to me to think about the possibilities of teaming up, it was easy to envision the success we would have in the pro space" says Toby Daschbach, owner of Metro Tech Reps. "A speaker for most spaces. An integration friendly design. A company that understands the importance and role of the designer and integrator. A win for all involved!"

“As the owner of a Manufacturer’s Rep firm for 27 years I understand the value of relationships a good rep has.” Rich Radimer, owner of ProActs Sales explains. “When we decided that we needed to bring somebody on board to help us grow the Sonance Professional line, we immediately thought of Toby Daschbach. The combination of Sonance’s quality product, ProAct’s infrastructure and Metro Tech Reps relationships will prove to help the commercial designer and integrator bring better sound to their designs and installs.”

Metro Tech Reps Grows Their Synergistic Offering with SpinetiX Digital Signage and Lumens HD Cameras

NEW YORK - (September 6, 2017) In less than one year, Metro Tech Reps has established itself as one of New York’s most prominent Pro AV rep firms by teaming with highly innovative digital technology leaders– some mainstream and some brands that are little lesser-known in the AV industry.

The tools are just amazing. And for the purist, their Elementi software can be used to create the most complex, custom graphics. There are enough widgets to make your head spin. One provider. Done!”

Metro Tech Reps has also added optical leader, Lumens Integration Inc. with their PTZ cameras and lecture capture solutions, to the team line card. “Dependable cameras don’t have to break the budget. Lumens has a strong track record of successful school and enterprise integrations around the world,” explains Michael Scheibel, Regional Manager for Lumens. “We are looking forward to seeing New York metro area adopting the new Lumens VC-A70H 4K PTZ Camera for projects requiring high resolution, quality color, and 12X optical zoom, along with simultaneous HDMI and USB output and other advanced imaging features.”
