DOW Rebrands Incorporating
'Technologies'

TAMPA, FLA.-BASED DISTRIBUTOR DOW Electronics has announced it has changed its name to DOW Technologies. The new
name reflects the company's long history while better aligning
with its current and future business strategy.
DOW began as a local television repair parts distributor that
has grown over 60 years into a national distributor of consumer
products and technology solutions that connect and improve
customers lives. The breadth of products and services that
DOW now offers has outgrown the product offerings suggested
by the use of " Electronics " in the company name.
The new branding of DOW Technologies highlights a company culture that is engaged with the technological solutions it offers, the distributor says. DOW utilizes the products
and technologies within its own offices and distribution

centers to be more efficient and to have an enhanced work
environment.
DOW's employees value living with the products in their
homes and vehicles to better understand their features and
capabilities, the company says. The brand and culture of DOW
Technologies reinforces knowing and experiencing the products
and services offered to better support its customers.
" We are very excited to make this name change to better
reflect our business activity and goals, " says president and CEO
John Yodzis. " This decision is not being taken lightly as DOW
Electronics has been our family business for over 45 years. We
wanted to make sure we honored our history while looking
forward to the future of the company. "
DOW Technologies has eight locations serving Alabama,
Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New
Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania,
South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin
Islands, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.

New SnapAV AllNet, Volutone
Locations Open

SNAPAV PRO STORES have launched two new stores: an AllNet
location in Charlotte, N.C., that opened its doors in December,
and a Volutone location in Scottsdale, Ariz., that began serving
customers in January.
According to Wally Whinna, senior vice president of Local,
SnapAV's newest Local Pro Stores provide dealers in those
locales with flexible logistics support and same-day product
availability necessary to complete jobs on time and on budget.
The SnapAV Pro Store program started in 2018 and will soon
include a total of 30 stores in major metro markets. Stores are
being revamped to offer an open shopping platform, where customers can freely browse aisles of products, along with training
facilities and highly knowledgeable sales staff.
Select stores even have a 24-hour will-call room. On-site
training and product demonstrations were put on hold in 2020
and are expected to return later in 2021.
