Belcher becomes the eighth member of HHB’s experienced team of engineers with specialist technical knowledge. He is based in HHB’s 2,000-square-foot Technical Department in North West London, and reports to service manager Rachid Amini.
According to the company, the new appointment is proof of HHB’s commitment to providing the best after-sales service in Europe and supporting young talent in the industry.

HHB has invested more than £250,000 in new analogue and digital test equipment, making its facility Europe's largest independent pro audio support centre. This is complemented by a large stock of spare parts, which ensures that all repairs are made quickly and efficiently.
