Milestone AV, a global manufacturer of mounting and display solutions, and SurgeX, a manufacturer of energy intelligence and AC power conditioning products, have entered into a a partnership that will debut at InfoComm 2015.

The two companies are developing a new line of power protected infrastructure solutions exclusive to the Chief brand. Milestone AV says the collaboration will deliver simplified, one-SKU ordering that brings power integration to the A/V side of the install process to increase revenue opportunities for dealers.

“This is a great strategic partnership that has allowed us to bring powered options to Chief’s storage solutions. I love the pairing of these two companies that are experts in their A/V fields coming together to make life easier for our customers,” says Gina Schneider, product manager, Chief. “By integrating SurgeX’s technology we are able to simplify installations while providing an unmatched level of protection. It just makes sense.”

The initial product offering will combine SurgeX’s non-sacrificial surge protection technology, power and filtering with six Chief products, including the company’s new in-wall and above-ceiling storage solutions, and two suspended ceiling kits.

“By integrating our non-sacrificial surge protection and noise filtration into a form factor fit for storage solutions, Chief has created one of the most convenient and low-profile power protection solutions available,” notes Shannon Townley, president, SurgeX. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to work with such an innovative partner and recognize the tremendous potential for this product in both the A/V space and elsewhere.”
