Crestron Dealers Dominate Commercial AV Industry, Comprise 49 of SCN Top 50 Systems Integrators in 2010

SCN Magazine's Annual Top 50 Systems Integrator Listing Sets the Standard for the Industry's Leading Commercial AV Dealers

The highly anticipated Systems Contractor News(SCN) Top 50 Systems Integrators list, which recognizes the leading integrators in the commercial AV industry, was released this week. Firmly established as the gold standard by which commercial integrators are measured, the Top 50 list revealed that 49 of the SCN Top 50 are Crestron dealers.


"Crestron congratulates each company on this prestigious list, and we applaud their hard work, dedication and innovation in driving our industry forward," said Crestron Executive Vice President, Randy Klein. "It's very gratifying to see that the most successful companies in our industry are Crestron dealers, and we're proud to have contributed once again to the success of so many of our dealers who made the list this year."

These leading integrators set the pace for AV firms, both large and small, who serve clients in commercial markets such as corporate, education, government/military, hospitality, stadium and arenas, and many others segments.

With the ability to offer complete, fully -integrated building technology solutions, including distributed AV systems, commercial lighting control, HVAC control, security, and more, it's no coincidence that nearly all of the top 50 are Crestron dealers.

The top 10 are:

AVI -SPL, Tampa, FL The Whitlock Group, Richmond, VA CCS Presentation Systems, Scottsdale, AZ Electrosonic, Burbank, CA Diversified Systems, Kenilworth, NJ HB Communications, North Haven, CT AVI Systems, Minneapolis, MN Roscor Corporation, Mount Prospect, IL Xerox Audio Visual Solutions, Norcross, GA Ford Audio -Video, Oklahoma City, OK

The SCN Top 50 Systems Integrators, which includes firms in the U.S. and Canada, were ranked by projected systems integration revenue for 2010. As is the case every year, this year's submissions were voluntary.

"The greatest measure of our success at Crestron is the success of our dealers," Klein added. "We will continue to emphasize our commitment to Crestron dealers and our dedication to helping them build their businesses by offering the most innovative solutions and products, the best training, and the most reliable support in the industry."
