ITI, a General Electric Interlogix company, has chosen Eastern Distributing to be one of its first independent distributors of its security products line. As an ITI distributor, Eastern Distributing will market the full ITI product line including the Concord and Simon flagship products. Until recently, ITI products were sold strictly through a dealer direct program. Now, the ITI product line is available through independent distributors like Eastern Distributing. By bringing on ITI, Eastern now becomes one of the largest independent distributors of security products in the nation.

"This gives us a product line that makes us one of the stronger independents in the marketplace," said Nick Scarane, Eastern Distributing's Vice-President of Sales.

Scarane said this also makes it easier for ITI to get their products to its dealer base. "The biggest challenge in the past was that ITI products had to be shipped directly from their factory in Minnesota -- now their products are more easily accessible for the existing ITI clients as well as for prospective new customers."
