PHOENIX, AZ (10.22.2013) – R&D Distributing and Progressive Sales and Marketing hosted dealers at the company’s new Phoenix location on Thursday, October 17th.

R&D has a history of “Rockin’ the House” and the company’s Phoenix event continued that tradition. Fifty-nine accounts, and their guests, attended the event. Goody bags, delicious food and refreshments from Rudy’s put everyone in a very good mood. Experiencing a Rockford Fosgate mini Sound and getting a free car wash were icing on the cake. Rockford’s Greg Cobbs brought his Camaro, loaded with Rockford, for dealers to experience and get a car wash too.

R&D President Dave Russell commented, “The vendors were very happy with the turnout of area dealers and were very impressed with the team we have in place. The car wash created an opportunity for many conversations and networking with vendor representatives on site that included Rockford, Pioneer, Directed, Harman, Rostra, Metra, Dual, Axxera, DB Link and Escort.”
