Harris Corp. created a North American Channel Partners team for the company’s radio broadcast market.
The team includes 10 U.S. and three Canadian companies, including dealers, distributors and systems integrators that will help Harris extend its reach into small- and mid-sized markets. The manufacturer said Channel Partners will also enable Harris to offer planning and design assistance, disaster recovery, regionalized field resources, quicker response times and specialized integration teams.

Harris will make the majority of its manufactured radio broadcast products and systems available to Channel Partners, including HD Radio, FM and AM transmitters; VistaMax studio networking systems; various on-air and production consoles; studio furniture; and Intraplex STL platforms.
