Metra Home Theater Group

Metra Home Theater Group (MHTG) is excited to announce that the AWA Rep Firm will be their new representative firm in the midwest region of the United States. AWA Rep Firm works hard to “close the loop” in the sales evolution from manufacturer to distributor, distributor to dealer, and finally dealer to end-user. They see themselves as an extension of the business they represent, in this case, MHTG. Austin Wendt, Principal of AWA Reps, is confident that they are the right fit for MHTG since Metra provides security products as well as AV products to consumers. “What separates AWA from other firms, besides our service, is that we are involved in both Security and AV. Other firms only work within one or the other,” states Wendt. “We are just scratching the surface with our AV Division and are looking to partner with the right brands for today’s CI Integrator, ” adds Andy Spolar, Director of Sales.

Adding AWA Rep Firm, with their dual involvement in both worlds, will be a tremendous benefit to MHTG, and will provide connections to grow MHTG’s existing network and generate new clientele. This new partnership will add to MHTG’s existing team of talented field representatives, serving the midwest region. “Our Spyclops brand of surveillance system products is ideal for AWA’s security division, while our Ethereal, Velox, Helios and The Install Bay product lines will work well for their AV division,” says Jessy Crabb, General Manager for MHTG. “We look forward to a great long-term relationship with AWA and providing more support for customers in the midwest region,” she added. AWA’s territory for MHTG will cover Minnesota, Wisconsin and Illinois.
