The MSC America Philosophy
As a true veteran of the industry, Larry Penn has worked for many retailers and distributors over the years. Based in Calgary, Alberta, Larry and his wife, Sue, have operated Mobile Solutions of Calgary, a highly respected retail store, since 2009. In 2014 they launched Mobile Solutions of Canada to distribute car audio solutions across the country. The final expansion came in 2017 as they entered the U.S. market with MSC America and an office in Mesa, Arizona.
The advantage of owning a retail shop gives the team real-world, hands-on experience with the products they sell. Likewise, the team has a unique perspective when it comes to understanding the needs of their retailers. This business model is a true case of “walking the walk.”
The team members were chosen based on their expertise in retail, wholesale representation, marketing and product development. Being able to understand the entire process from solution conception to installation and configuration in a vehicle provides the team with an unparalleled understanding of how the industry functions.
The MSC team supports its dealers with regular in-depth training on products, installations and sales. The result is a connection with retailers across North America that provide exemplary service and solutions.

Premium Speeding Ticket Prevention and Integration Solutions
Stinger speed trap protection solutions were designed from scratch to provide world-class radar detection and laser defense performance. Their unique HD+ radar antenna is only 10 mm thick and uses the same low-profile patch array receivers as military aircraft. Continuing on the theme of unique solutions, the laser fiber receivers and transmitters are so small, they are nearly invisible. Finally, Stinger has developed two unique control solutions: the Strip and the View. The Strip is a compact touchpad that blends beautifully with the interior of any vehicle. The View is a touchscreen display that provides a wealth of information for enthusiasts.
