CUK Live is the new dedicated live sector distribution division of CUK Audio and is built around the Glasgow-based company’s three core live sound brands, CADAC, Powersoft and Clair Bros.
"With our expanding portfolio of high profile brands, CUK Audio has seen a greatly increased percentage of our sales in the live sector,” explained managing director Stuart Thomson. “Our business is built on the high level of support and service we give our customers, and maintaining this standard for the live sector now requires a more focused approach. Many distributors claim to service all markets, but one always wins out to the detriment of the others. With a separate division we can be sure we are completely focused on the needs of customers in the live and rental markets."
CUK Live’s approach to the live sound industry is based on its high-end product portfolio, of which Cadac is a key component. “Our plans for CUK Live have been developed over some time,” continued Thomson. Taking on Cadac’s new product range after last year’s PLASA show was a milestone in our strategy. This year’s PLASA is the perfect time to launch the new division, and we have a lot to talk about with our three major brands. In terms of CADAC we have an exceptional offering, with a comprehensive range of powerful high quality analogue and digital consoles and the arrival of full production samples of the CDC Four and CDC Eight."
A full team of Cadac sales and engineering personnel will be in attendance on the CUK Live stand throughout the show. Commenting on the significance of the launch of the new distribution division for Cadac, International Sales manager Ben Millson stated: “The decision by CUK to focus its considerable resources on the live sound sector with a dedicated division has come at an ideal time for Cadac. Our CDC Four, CDC Eight, LIVE1 and S-Type console range spans the full breadth of live sound applications, from precision control and sound design for fixed installations, to full scale touring and theatre productions. The wealth of engineering experience, expertise and unrivalled quality, manifest in our heritage and reputation for our hand built large-scale consoles has gone into the design and manufacture of these models.Article continues below
