Harman Professional has appointed Sound Technology as its UK distributor for Martin.
The deal is hoped to streamline logistics for customers, with Sound Technology holding substantial Martin stock in the UK and a supply of spare parts locally.
The Hertfordshire-based company has distributed Harman audio solutions and services since 2008 and has now expanded its operations with a dedicated professional lighting team helmed by former Martin UK sales director Ritchie Reed as business development manager (professional lighting).
Jonas Stenvinkel, group director entertainment EMEA, HARMAN Professional Solutions, comments: “We are very pleased about this expansion of our partnership, Sound Technology has been our distributor in the UK for many years, and with their strong representation across the country, we believe the expansion of our great partnership will lead to a mutually beneficial future for both companies.“
David Marshall, managing director of Sound Technology, adds: “We are immensely proud and excited to be representing the full Martin portfolio. Whilst we see clear synergies in terms of customer base and market sectors we already operate in, our new professional lighting team will be focused exclusively on the management and development of the Martin brand in the UK.”
Sound Technology is holding an open day on 14 November at its demo facility in Letchworth Garden City to allow customers to test the latest products, including the MAC Encore LED moving heads.
