AVAD dealers will have access to an extensive list of products, including the most-awarded TV at CES® 2017, the super-thin (less than a tenth of an inch) LG SIGNATURE OLED W Series that provides customers a large “wallpaper” display that literally sticks to the wall. 

“With LG’s focus on the premium segment of the U.S. video market, custom-installation dealers are very important to us,” said Rick Calacci, Senior Vice President, Home Entertainment Sales at LG Electronics USA. “Joining forces with AVAD complements our existing distribution channels and brings cutting-edge LG technologies to even more custom dealers.”

LG has long been a premiere innovator in the display industry, especially with the industry-leading LG OLED TVs.  The LG Electronics line will be available at all AVAD US Locations for AVAD dealers.

“At AVAD, we’re thrilled to provide a wider breadth of premium display brands for our dealers, along with more profit and revenue opportunities.” said Jon Zabel, AVAD’s VP of Sales and Vendor Management. “The new AVAD means giving our dealers exciting new choices such as LG along with leveraging our national footprint and expansion plans into new markets to provide more solutions for more dealers.”
