THE ELITE CORE DIFFERENCE

From our expert sales reps, top-tier technicians, and exceptional customer service, to our hand-built in the USA production gear, we strive to set ourselves apart from other manufacturers and distributors in the industry by creating more than just solid gear. Our clients are why we do what we do, and we will continue to strive to create an exceptional experience from customer contact, to product use for all of our customers.

THE ELITE CORE DIFFERENCE

 

Our attention to detail sets us apart.  From how we solder to how we pack a box for shipment, we are obsessed with perfection. If it's not perfect, it's not good enough to ship.

Our relationships set us apart. We strive to know each of our customers and serve them as we would want to be served. We work hard to remember the smallest of details, preferences, and requests from each of our clients.

Our speed sets us apart. We work fast. We ship fast. Custom built and color engraved items ship faster than anyone in our industry. Custom stenciled cases and racks fly out of our warehouse with amazing speed.  

 


OUR FOUNDERS

OUR FOUNDERS


Chris Ward

President 


Chris has been an active member of the AVL industry for over 25 years, initially managing Sigler Music, an Arkansas-based chain of music stores and one of the nation’s largest online music equipment retailers. During his time with Sigler, Chris oversaw the creation of many national brands, including OSP Cases, SuperFlex Gold, VRL Cables, and Elite Core Audio.

After becoming the co-owner of Elite Core in 2014, Chris has overseen the implementation and development of many new company initiatives, including the transition to the manufacturing of high-end power and cabling products in the USA.

If you can’t get ahold of him at the office, he’s probably hosting a taco night at his house or re-mulching his flower beds. At his happiest, you’ll find him sitting on a Hawaiian beach with his wife or watching his grandkids fight over who gets to use the blue noodle in the pool.

Trey McClurkin

Vice-President 


Trey has been co-owner of Elite Core since its inception in 2014. An entrepreneur at heart, through the years he has owned a sound production company, a DJ business, a video and photography production company, and an online music equipment retail store.

Prior to joining Elite Core, Trey was the owner and operator of one of the most successful Elite Core wholesale dealers to date. He also was the founding drummer in the rock band Skillet, for those of you who are curious if Saturn actually does have a ring around it.

When he’s not at the office, you’re likely to find Trey doing… well, just about anything. If he’s not riding his road bike or setting up AVL for a local conference, he’s serving in the kid’s ministry of his church or cheering on his children with his wife at a [insert any extra-curricular] event.


OUR HISTORY

Elite Core has been providing the production industry with top-tier gear since [YEAR].
Over the years we have continued to seek out the best ways to accommodate and support the growing industry with cutting edge product design and technology.
In 2014, we took on new ownership and began to aggressively pursue new and innovative ways to give the industry products that were more than just "industry standard".
We have made our home in Conway, Arkansas, where you can find our growing team doing what they do best day in and day out - pushing to be better, smarter, and more efficient in our growing industry.

OUR HISTORY

Elite Core has provided the production and AVL industry with top-tier gear and exceptional service since 2005.

Early in 2014, having outgrown our facilities, we set out to look for a new location. The perfect home was found in Conway, Arkansas. In May of 2014, the entire operation was relocated into a large facility that was previously occupied by Gibson and Baldwin. We've now grown into 62,500 square feet of production, office, and warehouse space just off of I-40, for easy inbound and outbound shipping, and quick stops by national touring crews.

Conway, Arkansas is definitely our permanent home. Here you can find our growing team doing what we do best day in and day out - pushing to be better, smarter, more kind and more efficient in our ever-growing and changing industry.

We welcome your visit.
