Specialist audio visual and document solutions distributor, Midwich, has acquired Sound Technology Limited, a specialist distributor focused on three technology categories – audio, musical instruments and lighting.
Sound Technology has a number of key exclusive brands, including several under the Harman audio and lighting umbrella, as well as high-profile musical instrument brands such as Nord. The deal follows Midwich’s acquisition of specialist Iberia based audio and lighting distributor Earpro earlier in the year and supports the Group’s strategy of growing its specialist value add offering.
Stephen Fenby, Managing Director, Midwich Group commented: “We have watched the success of Sound Technology over recent years and are delighted to have persuaded Bob, Dave and the team to join our Group. The acquisition of Sound Technology substantially enhances the Group’s ability to provide world-leading products and high value add audio solutions to our trade customers. In addition, I believe that the high level of support Sound Technology provides to its vendors is very close to our proven strategy as a specialist distributor. The Company’s recent entry into the professional lighting market is an exciting proposition and complements our current offering in the Benelux and Iberia regions. I look forward to welcoming the Sound Technology team into the Midwich Group, and working with them to further develop this market place.”
The acquisition provides the Group with access to a number of high-profile audio brands, and enhances the Group’s ability to provide complete audio visual solutions to its customers. The acquisition augments Midwich’s existing position in the audio market and it will continue to distribute commercial audio products through its existing vendors.
