After almost seven years of operation in a facility on Arrow Drive in Woburn, Massachusetts, Professional Audio Associates, a distributor and manufacturers' representative servicing the custom audio and video market, has expanded into a larger building in a nearby industrial park about ten miles north of Boston. Pro Audio maintains a mix of product that dealers rely on to provide solutions to almost every need, in one place. The new facility houses expanded warehouse space, training rooms, displays, and offices in an 18,000-square-foot Arrow Drive location. It also contains an expanded inside-sales force and space for creative services and communications.

The new office space incorporates meeting and demonstration facilities, videoconferencing rooms available for customer use, a large mock-up area for prewiring and testing systems, and an open office plan for the 30-plus engineering, programming, and production staff.

Elan will first stock the warehouse and shipping facility with M Series in-wall and in-ceiling speakers.
