Underscoring its commitment to create new growth opportunities for resellers and manufacturers, Stampede, the global leader in value-added distribution, today introduced a new line of Furrion AV and appliance products custom designed for compact living and mobile living lifestyles. Stampede is the exclusive North American mobile living market distribution partner of Furrion.
The introduction was made today at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Booth #26409 in the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“With approximately 1 million Americans living in RV’s full-time, an aging generation of Baby Boomers and an emerging generation of families are choosing to downsize and live in compact living environments that empower them to hit the road and see the country through the windows of their custom designed recreational vehicle (RV) on vacation,” Stampede President & CEO Kevin Kelly said today.
“Since 2005, RV ownership has grown from 7.9 million households to over 10 million today,” Kelly said today. “We believe that the North American outdoor and mobile living market is going to continue grow over the next decade, creating a huge opportunity for manufacturers and resellers who can meet the growing consumer demand for custom designed AV and appliance solutions that enable them to live the way they want to live in smaller places with more time spent outdoors and on the road — connected to their technology, devices and appliances.”
According to Kelly, Furrion offers a wide range of innovative consumer products that include outdoor televisions, consumer electronics, solar energy solutions and kitchen appliances that enable consumers to a more compact and mobile lifestyle. “We’re highlighting these solutions at CES and showing resellers how they can make them an important part of their portfolio in 2020.”
Furrion Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer Aaron Fidler embraced the new market opportunity created with Stampede, noting that, “Teaming up with Stampede marks a significant expansion of our long-term sales and market development programs. We have worked hard to design, engineer, and manufacture the next-generation of innovative consumer products that offer new value to customers across the traditional recreational vehicle, home, hotel and marine markets. Stampede’s business development team and reseller network will help to take these new products to the broadest range of markets and grow our consumer business.”
