February 1, 2021

With more consumers today used to the concept of working and learning from home, attention has shifted from simply accommodating that lifestyle to finding mays to maximize the experience. Getting by simply won’t do. Creating a professional-grade setup with quality products that won’t let them down should be the standard. And that’s exactly what Kanto Living sets out to do with their range of products. From high-end audio solutions to mounts and stands that scream luxury, Kanto promises to deliver a high level of quality to Nationwide Marketing Group’s network of retailers.

“Kanto’s products stand out for their quality and performance,” says Hank Alexander, director of Home Technology Specialists Nationwide (HTSN). “With both form and function in mind, these products will give our dealers the opportunity to change the conversation around both mounting solutions and the home desktop audio experience.”

“Nationwide Marketing Group has roots in the very fabric of each community they serve. The roster of dealers is like a who’s who in the industry,” says Jeff Naidu, North American retail sales manager for Kanto. “One loyal customer, one great opportunity after another for the community they all serve. We have learned that our best results are achieved with partners who add real value, and Nationwide’s members are among the best when it comes to adding value. It is a humbling experience to be a part of the culture and have the opportunity to help serve those dealers and communities alongside some of the best retailers out there.”

O’Rourke Sales Company will be the exclusive distributor for the Kanto lineup.

“The versatility of Kanto’s premium mount lineup perfectly complements O’Rourke’s high-end TV and AV offerings,” says Andrew Terry, president of O’Rourke. “Additionally, with the growing work-from-home trend, Kanto’s high-end audio offerings will allow our dealers to offer an audio solution that will elevate the listening experience for their consumers without compromising on style. Kanto’s products are a perfect fit for O’Rourke Sales Company, and we are excited to add them to our offering.”

Nationwide’s membership had the opportunity to learn more about Kanto during the October Virtual PrimeTime show.

“We were brand new to Nationwide in October, so we only got to experience a very little bit of the PrimeTime event,” says Bill Poteet, senior account executive for Kanto. “Even though it was a virtual meeting, you could really feel the enthusiasm from the membership. We can’t wait to participate in one fully and get to engage with all of the dealers.”

Kanto’s products are available now, and the brand will bring full representation to Nationwide’s next free Virtual PrimeTime event, which will be held March 16-18. Learn more at www.nationwideprimetime.com.
