AVAD Commemorates Fifth Anniversary with Celebration at CEDIA

AVAD celebrates five years of success and growth - -and the launch of D2B - -at CEDIA Expo 2003.

FT. LAUDERDALE, FL - September 7, 2003 - AVAD, LLC, premier custom installation distributor, is celebrating its five year birthday at CEDIA Expo 2003 in September in Indianapolis, Indiana. The party will gather AVAD's distribution partners, dealers and friends to highlight innovations implemented and growth achieved since the company's inception in 1998.


"All of our success has rested on the efforts of a group of dedicated individuals who together realized AVAD's vision," said Joe Piccirilli, managing director of AVAD. "The fifth birthday celebration will let everyone reflect on what's worked until now and where our focus should lie in the future. We created something that was new, different and truly groundbreaking and, I am certain, will have a positive impact on the long -term future of custom installation."

Since 1998, AVAD set forth to become the sole solutions provider to dealers nationwide. The goal has always been to facilitate the installer's job by providing them with a one -stop solution to their needs. AVAD carries great products, provides in -house trainings and dealer support, and develops initiatives for industry -wide success. For instance, by creating a common channel through which home technology dealers and installers can connect, AVAD has streamlined the business channel on both sides. Homebuilders and system installers are better able to join forces to increase individual business opportunities while homeowners have greater and faster access to the nearest and best providers of lifestyle solutions, thereby strengthening the entire service chain. In a further effort to reinforce the industry, AVAD implements regular manufacturer training programs at each of its 21 locations, as well as has teamed up with CEDIA to provide Level I Installer certification at its facilities nationwide.

AVAD's fifth birthday celebration is scheduled for Saturday, September 6, between 4 and 6 p.m. at AVAD's booth # 413 and extending to the show floor. Everyone is invited to join in the fun.
