DbM, the Premium AV Distributor, was awarded the Distributor of the Year award at the recent Smart Building Awards. Having never entered this category before, the DbM team was delighted to be recognised for establishing itself as a trusted distributor of high-quality products and services that deliver exceptional audio and visual experiences.
The Smart Building Awards aim to deliver the most representative, inclusive and up to date awards in the AV/install world. Judged by an expert panel, the distributor of the year category awards a company that delivers on three key areas – new additions, customer support and training.
Since its inception in 2017, DbM has been enabling dealers to deliver the best in AV integration for their clients – ensuring they can enjoy the pinnacle of image and sound. The last two years have seen the distributor go from strength to strength with a 15% growth each year.
It is the proud distributor of pioneering brands that share its desire to achieve the highest level of audio and video performance. In the last year, DbM introduced two new brands – Ambisonic and Lumagen. These join Amina, Barco Residential, LG, Meridian Audio, Nexgentec, SMS, Sonos, Trinnov and Waterfall Audio.
DbM recognises the high level of support in design, specification and installation that is required to ensure a successful installation. Its complimentary Design and Specification Service supports project planning and presentation and is well-used by integrators to help in this area. DbM supports dealers with its fully equipped experience centre that features solutions from all brands. It also visits dealers’ installations to carry out full calibration of products from Barco, Lumagen, Meridian and Trinnov, ensuring clients can enjoy the full potential of their systems.
DbM recognises the importance of providing training to ensure its customers are delivering the best possible installation, but also to make sure the industry continues to progress forward. It offers a bespoke service that sees the team share its knowledge of 100+ years on sales, design, specification, products and installation – essentially, they guide the integrator throughout the project, educating them along the way.
"We are absolutely delighted to receive the Distributor of the Year award at the Smart Building Awards. This recognition is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our team, who continuously strive for excellence. It showcases our commitment to delivering high-quality products and services to our customers. We have made significant progress as a distributor over the last year and look forward to building on this success in the coming years."
