FARGO, ND (05.03.12) – Mid-State Distributing capped the company’s 3-city 2012 show schedule in Fargo on Thursday and Friday, April 26th and 27th respectively. Successful dealer events in Shreveport and Omaha preceded the Fargo event.

Tom Kolar, Mid-States Sales Manager related to 12voltnews.com “Our Fargo event was another super show. Dealers from throughout the Dakotas, the Cities and even Canada made their way to our Fargo event. In fact, 95% of the dealers that preregistered were in the house in Fargo. Our trainings developed enthusiasm and desire for new and existing product line growth. Overall April was excellent – a very strong 12volt month.”

Don Montgomery, Rockford Corp, stated, “The show was well attended and Dealers were there to buy. Not alot of lookers. Renegade demonstrated it’s new Power sports Sound System that retails for $99.99. Customers were amazed at how loud and clear it played for such a compact, easy to install system. Not to mention priced competitively.”
