CARLSBAD, CA – MantelMount, the premier, award-winning mounting option for flatscreen televisions, is expanding both its offices and its staff. The expansion is a result of well-executed business strategies to weather the pandemic and the growing popularity of their pulldown mounts.
The company was previously located in a single office in Carlsbad’s Bressi Ranch Village Center, housing all departments and functions. Due to the company’s growth, MantelMount has expanded into three separate office suites and a warehouse area in Faraday Business Park. These new offices will house the wholesale team. The former space will be used to accommodate larger creative and accounting teams.
Weathering the Pandemic
Many businesses found themselves unable to weather the pandemic. MantelMount devised numerous business strategies that not only helped it stay the course but actually increase business. The company worked with its distributors, dealers, and other channels to keep their businesses running as close to normal as possible.
For Lee Marc, CEO of MantelMount, these factors all played a role in the company’s positive performance. But he does not discount the expertise and perseverance of his human resources. “The dedication of our employees, along with the vision of management, helped us not only stay afloat but achieve great growth. We were even able to break into new markets. Without our people, I’m not sure we’d still be around, much less expanding.”
Indeed, the past year included some notable highlights:
- Launching the new MM710 mount, along with an upgrade to the company’s Robotic MM860
- Adding new patents
- Maintaining inventory to meet demand, despite the logistic and tariff challenges
- Making headway into new channels, i.e., schools, restaurants, and builders
- Improving dealer and distributor collateral
- Engaging an experienced contractor to support dealers with challenging installs
Ultimately, the expansion of the offices and staff will be a major benefit to MantelMount’s customers. This means both the end-users and the dealers who sell the company’s mounts.
“Our new offices and expanded staff will be able to provide resources that will benefit both end-users and dealers,” said Marc. “We’ll have two studios in our warehouse area. One will be used to address and solve customer installation issues, one will be for dealer training. Our expanded creative team will be able to produce more collateral for selling MantelMount products, while helping customers better understand their benefits.
“This move, and the resources that come with it, will have a positive impact on everyone, including our own people.”
MantelMount is the premier wall mount for high-on-the-wall installation of flatscreen televisions.
