“As leaders in the car audio space representing independent retailers, MESA is a natural fit as an AVB partner. MESA is a co-op, much like AVB and BrandSource, and the cultures between our companies are very similar. We look forward to exploring the many synergies between our organizations. We are excited to continue to build on AVB’s dominance in the CE space, with long-standing partner ProSource as the leader in CI and specialty retail, and now through the MESA partnership. With such an influx of great energy and new ideas, this is another win on the scoreboard for independent retail,” said Michael Posa, general manager, AVB Inc.

Consumer financing is an extremely important part of our members’ business and this partnership with AVB strengthens our members ability’ to increase their store sales potential. In addition to our members being able to offer the BrandSource financing we are looking forward to the many other ways that this partnership with AVB will benefit our MESA members in the future.”
