Vent-A-Hood® Announces Distinctive Appliances as New Distributor And Names Larger Distribution Territory for Pinnacle Express

RICHARDSON, Texas – (March 26, 2013) – Vent-A-Hood, the company that created the modern residential range hood, has named Distinctive Appliances Distributing of Wixom, Mich., as its new distributor for the territories of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Western Pennsylvania and Kentucky.

The company also announced that Pinnacle Express, Inc., of Haines City, Fla., an existing awardwinning Vent-A-Hood distributor for North Carolina, South Carolina and parts of Virginia, will expand its territory to include West Virginia.

“These are two premiere companies that deliver superior brands to appliance dealers and consumers who desire the very best, and we are excited to have them representing the full Vent-A-Hood® product line to these states with aggressive plans to expand our presence,” said Mark Klein, National Sales Director for Vent-A-Hood®.

Distinctive Appliances Distributing has been offering the most renowned and reliable brands of the household appliance industry across several states since 2007. And Pinnacle Express has been in business for more than 30 years with an exceptional reputation for service with luxury appliances.

Distinctive Appliances and Pinnacle Express assume the former territory of Choice Brands, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, that is exiting the appliance distribution business. A valued distributor for Vent-A-Hood® products since 1999, Klein said Choice Brands did an outstanding job educating appliance dealers, kitchen designers and homeowners on the pioneering manufacturing capabilities and performance of Vent-A-Hood® products.

“We were honored to have Choice Brands championing our brand and distributing our range hoods for so many years,” Klein said. “We have many happy customers to show for it.”

Currently celebrating its 80th anniversary, Vent-A-Hood® has welcomed record sales in recent months and continues to foster a strong marketing relationship with distributors across North America, resulting in increased space on showroom floors with interactive displays and strong orders for the company’s products with its signature Magic Lung blower.
