GASTONIA, NC (01.23.2020) – Shiflet & Dickson hosted dealers for an AudioControl training session on Monday evening, January 20th, at the company’s facility in Gastonia NC. Matt Palumbo, AudioControl’s National Trainer, flew in from Seattle to conduct the training.
David Holland, Shiflet & Dickson GM, stated “We had about 30 people in the audience for Matt’s training. He not only thoroughly covered the technical aspects of products in the AudioControl line but gave dealers a number of sales pointers that they can use on the sales floor back in their stores. Several dealers came from over a couple hours away and they were definitely rewarded for their trip.”
Palumbo related “We trained the audience members at Shiflet & Dickson on the entire AudioControl lineup as well as a focus on new products like our LC1i and LC2iPRO, ACX Series all-weather amplifiers, new 5-channel amplifier as well as the game changing DM-RTA. Audience members were definitely in tune and asked a lot of real world questions.”
Holland added “We had a meeting in the AudioControl booth at CES. While there Matt took me through the line. In our discussions in the booth I mentioned we had not had an AudioControl training in a while. Just 10 days after CES 2020 concluded we had an AudioControl training at our facility. That’s getting after it and we appreciate the very quick action to get 2020 off to a fast start with Audio Control.”
A drawing was held for an Audio.Control ACM4.300 at the event. Steven Reed, from Mobile Installation Group (MIG), in Gaffney SC was the winner. Reed told 12voltnews.com “Matt put on a great training and I am looking forward to putting my ACM4.300 into action.”
Reece Helms, Shiflet & Dickson’s new Territory Manager for the company’s Eastern NC and SC area, attended the meeting. Helms spent 15 years working with N Tunz in Salisbury NC and lives on the coast. Helms will provide Shiflet & Dickson greater coverage in golf cart, ATV, motorcycle and marine accounts.
Following the Shiflet & Dickson training Palumbo hit the road with Dennis Montgomery visiting dealers in the territory. Montgomery is a territory manager for Tech Marketing that reps AudioControl.
