Midwich makes Sound purchase

acoustic_locator_8Midwich has taken over Letchworth-based Sound Technology.

Sound Technology will continue to operate as an independent company but will become a subsidiary of the Midwich group. Sound founder Robert Wilson set to remain as chairman.

Midwich has been in a buying up large spree since it went public – it has acquired distributors in the UK, Spain, New Zealand and the Netherlands.

Stephen Fenby, managing director at Midwich, said: “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 marketplace.”
