Riebe and Thornhill Team Up to Form Aviscel Inc.
The recently formed Aviscel Inc. plans to distribute communication technology products and supply chain management services for the professional and consumer A/V presentation integration markets.
The Texas-based company has announced the signing of an exclusive North American distribution agreement with Prague's Cue. The Czech company designs, develops, and manufactures integrated remote-control systems for commercial, industrial, and residential applications.
Aviscel is headed by R. Randal Riebe, former vice president of AMX Corp. Riebe is joined by David Chisum, chief financial officer, and Chas Thornhill, vice president of technical operations.
Riebe, who serves as Aviscel's president and chief executive officer, said the company will have a different take on its industry segment. The company will provide the marketing and technical support roles of a manufacturer, Riebe said, as well as the warehouse management and fulfillment capabilities of a specialty logistics company.
