MARIETTA, GA (04.27.2017) – Vickers AV, a premiere distributor of high-end automotive, marine and home AV equipment, today announced that it has been authorized by Clarion Corporation of America, a leader in consumer and commercial mobile electronics, to immediately stock and market Clarion’s full line of marine systems and accessories to its premium 12-volt dealers and specialists across the Eastern United States.
Recognized by the industry for their benchmark durability and reliability, every Clarion marine system and accessory endures a battery of character defining tests. By replicating prolonged UV exposure, simulating the humid saltwater environment and rigorously testing for thermal shock to imitate quick changes in temperature, Clarion ensures that its marine line-up can withstand the rigors of the harsh marine environment season after season.
“Clarion has long been the go-to brand for durable, high performance marine audio systems, for both boat builders as well as specialty aftermarket dealers and installers,” said Steve Meade, Sr. Director of Aftermarket Sales at Clarion Corporation of America. “Within the last 12 months, Clarion has expanded its already impressive marine product line by launching multiple new source units, speakers and accessories. Working with Vickers will allow us to boost the availability of our product line among high-end dealers and retailers in a region heavily populated with boating enthusiasts, as well as help us promote the long list of advanced features and benefits our products offer over the competition.”
