||At InfoComm 2012, MUSIC Group announced the acquisition of loudspeaker manufacturer Turbosound. Based in West Sussex, England, Turbosound is an acknowledged name in loudspeaker technology for three decades, earning the prestigious Queen’s Award a remarkable three times, including one for Innovation in 2012. The addition of Turbosound allows Music Group to round out their professional and touring sound offerings alongside Midas and Klark Teknik.
Music Group founder and CEO Uli Behringer comments, “Since the acquisition of Midas and Klark Teknik we have been pursuing a loudspeaker brand that complements the consoles and processing offered by these historic brands. Throughout our search Turbosound have stood out as the ideal match because of their extensive IP, sterling reputation and a first-class team of people. I am very proud to welcome Simon Blackwood and his team to our family.”
Turbosound joins Midas and Klark Teknik as anchor brands to the Music Group’s continued expansion into professional markets. Aimed at delivering complete system solutions to touring and install customers, the combination of brands represents a new range of choice for a range of applications. It is expected that Turbosound will benefit from Music Group’s extensive infrastructure while retaining their own manufacturing, sales, marketing and distribution network worldwide.
