M.E.S.A. (Mobile Electronic Specialists of America) is the 12-volt industry’s first and only Member-owned retailer marketing and buying group. What does that mean? First, it means that the best independent retailers in the car audio and aftermarket car accessories industry teamed up to gain increased buying power. Second, Member retailers don't overlap geographically which means they can take advantage of group marketing campaigns and programs tailored specifically for the independent 12-volt retailer. Finally, MESA has connects their Members with MESA Vendor Partners: the best vendors and manufacturers in the industry. Together, Members and Vendor Partners thrive in a mutually beneficial business relationship.
Members and vendors, whose business practices support the independent channel of distribution, make up the backbone of the group. Retail and vendor members are those who have demonstrated the highest level of business principals and practices. Retail Members are comprised of dealers representing the best installation available to car stereo. Many are winners of multiple industry awards every year.
M.E.S.A. is about becoming part of a very select group of only the BEST dealers in the industry, each in a select geographic area. M.E.S.A is 100% owned by the Members and the group rebates are on top of the current programs a dealer has with these same vendor partners. All program payments come directly to the Member, none of the program funds go through M.E.S.A. first.
M.E.S.A. is quickly changing many dealer's businesses for the better. Becoming a Member changes nothing regarding the way you currently do business on a transactional basis. Members continue to negotiate their own programs and purchase through their individual representatives. The M.E.S.A. programs further enhance your profitability and bring new opportunities through the group’s dynamic.
M.E.S.A. moves as a team. Members work together sharing their very best practices, internal forms, sales staff incentive programs & other business information to help each other in all areas of their business. Once a year the M.E.S.A. group gathers in person to reinforce the strong group dynamic and provide valuable information and educational resources to Members and Vendor Partners.
