    Ashland City, TN (Friday, 07 December 2007)

    A. O. Smith recently launched its new showroom kit to assist wholesale showrooms in the sale of the Vertex™ water heater. These kits are part of a new initiative aimed at bolstering consumer interest and support for the product.

    Kits contain valuable materials that can be displayed in a wholesaler’s showroom. Materials include:

     • Consumer brochures, which help to educate the consumer on Vertex’s groundbreaking features and the benefits of owning a Vertex water heater.

     • Consumer brochure display

     • Training presentation

     • Counter sign

     • Static cling decals

     • Testimonials from Vertex owners, and

     • Sales DVD featuring Ed Begley, Jr., official spokesperson for the Vertex water heater. In the DVD, Begley explains how the Vertex complements his “green” lifestyle and how it outperforms conventional residential water heaters.

    Showroom kits help retailers target consumers with large families, owners of luxury baths or body spray systems, people interested in “going green,” as well as customers looking for a better alternative to tankless systems or upgrading from other more conventional models.

    Kits can be ordered online and shipped directly to the showroom location. For more information, or to order a showroom kit, visit
