ADDvantage Technologies Group (through our subsidiaries) distribute and service a comprehensive line of electronics and hardware for the cable television (“CATV”) and telecommunications industries. In addition, we also provide equipment repair services to cable operators.
Several of our subsidiaries, through their long relationships with the original equipment manufacturers (“OEMs”) and specialty repair facilities, have established themselves as value-added resellers (“VARs”). ADDvantage has a reseller agreement with Arris Solutions to sell cable television equipment in the United States. We are also one of only three distributors of Arris broadband products. We are a distributor of Cisco video products as a Cisco Premier Partner, which allows us to sell Cisco’s IT related products. In addition, we are designated as an authorized third party Cisco repair center for select video products. Our subsidiaries also sell products from other OEMs including Alpha, Blonder-Tongue, RL Drake, Corning-Gilbert, Promax, Quintech, Standard and Triveni Digital.
In addition to offering a broad range of new products, we also sell surplus-new and refurbished equipment that we purchase in the market as a result of cable operator system upgrades or an overstock in their warehouses. We maintain one of the industry's largest inventories of new and refurbished equipment, which allows us to expedite delivery of products to our customers. We continue to upgrade our new product offerings to stay in the forefront of the communications broadband technology revolution.
We also operate 7 technical service centers that service/repair most brands of CATV equipment. In addition, we offer to our telecommunications customers decommissioning services for surplus and obsolete equipment, which we in turn process through our R2 certified recycling program.
