Tessco Partners with JBL to Distribute Full Line of Audio Accessories

HUNT VALLEY, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TESSCO Technologies (NASDAQ: TESS), a leading provider of mobile device accessories and retail solutions, today announced a new partnership with JBL to expand its audio portfolio.


Recognized by market research firm NPD as an industry-leading brand, JBL offers an extensive line of audio products, including wireless Bluetooth devices, speakers and headphones, connected home audio solutions, in-car sound systems, and much more.

“Tessco is thrilled to be partnering with JBL, one of the premier audio brands in our industry,” said Liz Robinson, Senior Vice President of Retail Sales and Product Marketing at Tessco. “With JBL as a manufacturing partner, Tessco continues to build a robust and competitive audio offering. Sales of audio products are not tied so closely to major handset launches as are other mobile device accessories, so our customers are able to realize revenue throughout the year. Our goal as a distributor is to provide retailers with just this type of opportunity, and this new partnership allows us to do so by providing our customers with one source for all their audio and mobile device accessories needs.”

“We look forward to realizing the benefits this partnership provides as a result of Tessco’s broad channel reach, logistics management expertise and focus on driving incremental placement and growth for our products,” said Daniel Lee, Vice President and General Manager of Consumer Audio at HARMAN International.
