RCF USA announces the appointment of Northmar, Inc. as Manufacturer Representative for the Pacific Northwest territory, effective September 1. Northmar will represent the RCF brand of products in Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska.
“With over a half century of history in the territory, the strength of their long-term relationships with their customers and the synergy of products offered in their Pro Audio division makes Northmar the perfect choice for us,” says RCF USA National Sales Manager Tarik Solangi.
Founded in 1952, the Seattle-based Northmar is a second generation company founded by Robert Entrop and Ray Johnston. In 1991, Entrop’s sons Robert Jr., Richard and Russell took over ownership and management of the firm. Today, they operate three divisions – Professional Audio Products, Consumer Audio Products and Industrial Products.
In the Professional Audio division, “our audio products market focus is broadcast, studio, touring and live sound,” says principal Robert Entrop Jr., adding, “as well as commercial installations, custom home applications and installations, retail audio and custom audio/video installations.”
Products in Northmar’s Professional Audio division include Aphex, Avlex, Crest, Fiberplex, Furman, Media Matrix, Peavey Architectural Acoustics and Xantech. To enhance visibility in the marketplace and maintain their technical expertise, Northmar is a member of the Electronic Representatives Association (ERA) and the IPRO Professional Sales Force Association.
