Audio Gear Group has partnered with the Calif.-based manufacturer's rep Paul Collins Group, and the Australian distributor Avation for representation in Australia.

Audio Gear Group, a manufacturer and distributor of a portfolio of integration brands that include OSD Audio, OSD Black, M&K, and Carver, has announced that it has appointed Paul Collins Group (PCG) as its sales representative for California and Hawaii. 

Effective immediately, the Southern-California-based rep firm will carry the entire line of OSD Audio and OSD Black to give PCG dealers a complete range of custom integration audio products, from moderately priced in-wall and in-ceiling speakers of OSD Audio, to high-performance solutions from the OSD Black line. 

A long-time member of the custom integration industry and a founding member of CEDIA, Paul Collins Group has served its dealer network for 37 years. PCG has a long history of identifying future trends in technology and uniting them with key manufacturers, products and services that meet the needs of dealers and their clients. 

“Paul Collins Groups is the perfect fit for representing our line of affordable to high-end audio products,” says Bryan Strachota, national brand manager, Audio Gear Group.

“The entire team takes enormous pride in making sure that their dealer community and the brands they offer are a win-win, and because they are in our backyard, we can work closely together for exceptional customer support.”
