Ah, see, that's what I thought made things clear.
Makes sense that they'd be resellers. If you wanted to purchase a big desk setup, they could put together a working and tested package. Less uncertainty, lead time to commission, made to order. This isn't so unlike the days when you'd order a build-in console and configure your fader packs, your patchbays, automation and monitoring section, bridge and trim. The supplying manufacturer only really built the mixer parts and assembled it for you.
Anyway, you didn't have to get specifically derisive.
