MANCHESTER, NH - (NewMediaWire) - April 22, 2022 - Minim, Inc. (NASDAQ: MINM), the creator of intelligent networking products under the Motorola brand, today announces that it has partnered with USI Sales, a leading consumer electronics distribution company in North America, on a path to expand its sales footprint to potential in-store placements in office retailers. USI Sales has had proven success in placing products on shelves in major office retailers, including The ODP Corporation, which runs both Office Depot and OfficeMax, Quill.com and Staples.
“As 25% of professional jobs in North America are expected to be remote by the end of this year, we believe office retailers are promising partners to serve consumers with high-quality home office network upgrades,” said Jeff Rodning, Minim National Retail Sales Director. “I have long admired the sales leadership showcased by the USI team, and we are very excited to have the opportunity to work with them.”
As part of the partnership, USI Sales will be able to offer their partner retailers top-of-the-line Motorola intelligent networking solutions in the mesh, cable modem, and gateway categories. Notable networking solutions include the Motorola MB8611, a top-selling DOCSIS 3.1 modem on Amazon; the Motorola MH7600 series, an accessible and advanced WiFi 6 mesh system; and the Motorola MG8725, one of the brand's highest performance cable modem router combos. Motorola networking devices also feature the motosync app, powered by Minim, giving consumers access to parental controls, malware protection, ad block, performance testing, and live chat support.
USI Sales has been a leading manufacturer’s representative for more than a decade, growing the sales capabilities of partners throughout the United States and Canada.
