Orca Design and Manufacturing has partnered with the Elite Distributor Alliance (EDA), a member-owned network of mobile electronics distribution companies. Orca Design is a provider of high-end audio systems, components and accessories for the automotive aftermarket.
The 12 partners of the organization will have the opportunity to stock and distribute Orca’s in-house Illusion Audio and Black Hole brands, as well as the RC line of amplifiers from the Gladen Audio brand, to thousands of its authorized retailers throughout the U.S. The agreement provides Orca with a broadened base of professional retailers through a professionally managed conduit of progressive distributors, according to EDA.
“I have worked with the team at Orca Design for many years and believe the Illusion Audio product to not only be unique and well-built but extraordinary in sound quality,” said Nate Taliani of Davis Distribution in Newell, West Virginia.
“The Illusion Audio products and Gladen amplifiers are extraordinary, but what further impresses me is the training and support Orca will deliver to our customers,” said Josh Eatherly from P&E Distributors in Nashville, Tennessee.
Illusion Audio is imagined and engineered at Orca’s corporate headquarters in Camarillo, California, and is manufactured in India. The line consists of premium speaker sets and shallow-mount subwoofers.
“I have known the team at Orca for many years,” said Jim Warren, executive director of the EDA. “While Orca’s passion for sound quality is second to none, they didn’t stop there. They thought deeply about the needs of the installer and their go-to-market strategy is thoroughly thought out. We are happy to finalize this agreement and bring Gladen and Illusion Audio to all of our dealers.”
