MISCO is a Minneapolis-based OEM manufacturer that has made its mark with high-quality, high-performance speaker products in the commercial aviation, medical equipment and casino gaming machine markets – as well as within the professional commercial audio sector.
Now, the company, which employs 65 and was founded in hi-fi’s heyday by General Manager Dan Digre’s father, Cliff, is looking to leverage its experience as a supplier that produces speakers in the U.S. to align with U.S. consumer electronics speaker brands as their supplier of choice.
Disparate thoughts seeping into the hollows of my mind are lucidly propagating this page. The demise of Hi Fi House, a retailer of electronics for the last 50 plus years, harkens the thought that there are no longer merchants in CE. It was fun to compare this speaker to that one, place a TV in locations in a store that would make it more appealing than another, have sales contests on Saturdays to motivate the salespeople, and all the cool things you could do to differentiate your store from others. Merchants have been replaced by contractors.
