FARGO, ND (05.16.2014) – The annual Mid-State Distributing Dealer Show for the company’s northern territory took place on April 24th and 25th. 12volt retailers and vendors alike traveled to the Mid-State Fargo facility to see the latest products and meet with an impressive number of exhibitors. Great show specials and raffle items, plus a super steak dinner, were on the event menu. Randy Balzum served as the blue ribbon grill-master.

Tom Kolar, Mid-State’s National Sales Manager on the 12volt side stated, “This year’s event saw an increase in dealer attendance over 2013. Dealers came to buy and many loaded their vehicles with the great deals to save freight.”

Area dealers who attended had an opportunity to see several new lines added to the Mid-State line card. Blaupunkt, RE Audio, NAV-TV and UltraStart are new Mid-State brands for 2014.

Derek Schmiedl, VP of NAV-TV commented, “2014 is NAV-TV’s first year with Mid-State. During the Fargo and Omaha dealer shows the team at Mid-State went above and beyond to promote the NAV-TV brand and to educate their dealers regarding the unique and profitable opportunities that OEM integrations brings. Mid-State shares are philosophy of service before, during and after the sale with unmatched customer service and products. We are very thrilled to be associated with Mid-State and look forward to a long relationship. Plus, Randy cooks one hell of a steak!”
