RF-Diamond-R_Black2 HRAudio system supplier Rockford Fosgate announced that it has appointed Mid-State Distributing as its aftermarket retail distribution partner for the upper Midwest territory, including Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and northern Wisconsin, effective immediately, for its full line of mobile and moto-marine audio systems.

“The upper Midwest is a growing market and is an increasingly important territory for us,” explained Greg Cobbs, regional sales manager for Tempe, Ariz.-based Rockford Fosgate. “We needed a distribution partner that can cover Minnesota, the Dakotas, and northern Wisconsin quickly and effectively with facilities large enough to meet our and our customers’ needs, and Mid-State Distributing is the answer. We are looking forward to working with them.”

According to Mid-State, the company has multiple facilities throughout the territory, and Rockford Fosgate will be stocked in the company’s 48,000-square-foot facility in Fargo, N.D. This strategic location provides over 90% next day ground delivery within the territory. The Mid-State sales team handling the territory includes Brad Johnson and Scott Neil out of the Fargo branch, and TJ Kolar based out of the Omaha, Neb. branch.

“I am extremely excited to add Rockford Fosgate to our line card,” said Tom Kolar, Mid-State Distributing national sales manager for 12-volt products. “Our team brings years of valuable experience to the table servicing our territory, and our goal is to be responsive to the every need of our customers. We look forward to a long profitable relationship with Rockford.”
