Velodyne's new distribution facility is dedicated to the company's growing list of retail and custom installation dealers in Canada.

Morgan Hill, CA (November 11, 2005) - - Velodyne Acoustics, Inc., the worldwide leader in high performance subwoofers, recently announced the opening of a new distribution center in Vancouver, Canada. The facility is dedicated to the company's growing list of retail and custom installation dealers in Canada.


The state -of -the -art warehouse will allow for the consolidation, storage and distribution of Velodyne's complete subwoofer line including the new MiniVee and SPL -R Series. The warehouse is part of an overall program to improve service to Canada.

"Improving service to our Canadian customers was the driving forces behind this new facility," said Bruce Hall, president of Velodyne. "Not only does the new warehouse allow us to more efficiently meet existing needs and provide a faster turn -around for orders, it has also been designed to support projected growth well into the future."

The warehouse will be a more convenient, more economical, and faster way for retailers and custom installers in Canada to do business with Velodyne. Turn -around time to receive product will be shorter as Velodyne products will no longer have to go through Canadian customs. Any size order can be accommodated.
