C2G Adds Capitol Sales Company as National Distributor for RapidRun and Audio/Video Products


DAYTON, OHIO – June 15, 2009 — C2G today announced an agreement with Capitol Sales Company to be a distributor for C2G products throughout the United States. Capitol Sales Company will be selling the C2G award–winning RapidRun® modular cabling system potentially along with other audio/video products.

Capitol Sales Company is the leading consumer electronics distribution source for custom installation specialists, systems contractors, retailers and premium incentive resellers. The company offers a full breadth of home theater, telephone, integrated home systems and commercial A/V products. They provide expert technical support and high–quality products at competitive prices, plus hands–on application training and world–class customer service.

“We were drawn to C2G by the innovation of its RapidRun product and the fact that they have quality, high performance A/V cabling and connectivity products that are perfectly suited for our education, digital signage, corporate and residential customers,” said Curt Hayes, president and CFO for Capitol Sales Company. “We see this as a great product line for our customers and installers that will enable them to save time and money both in the installation and in the ability to easily upgrade the system.”

The RapidRun system, which Capitol Sales Company will now be selling, supports multiple signals over a single cable. In order to upgrade or change equipment, users only need to change the cable terminal, known as the break–away flying lead or break–away wall plate. This saves installation time, accommodates last minute changes, reduces the likelihood of faulty terminations and evolves with different system needs.

“Capitol Sales Company will be a great partner for carrying C2G products to a larger customer base,” said Bill Diederich, president of Lastar, parent company of C2G. “The relationship is a natural fit with the markets we sell to and with our common goal of focusing on superior customer service.”
