Sound Technology recently announced the acquisition of Harman International’s Cinema Group Products in the UK and Eire.

The Letchworth-based company was awarded the rights to distribute Harman Pro last year (click here to read full story). It has now added Harman’s cinema sound products and expanded its portfolio with additional gear from JBL and Crown.

JBL sees its Cinema Sound Products as market leaders in all cinema categories from sound stages, to mixing rooms and THX approved theatre systems. Crown International also has a exstensive history in the development of amplifier systems for professional film production and cinema sound applications.

Doug Daniel, vice president of international sales for JBL Professional commented, "Harman International brands JBL Professional and Crown International are pleased to announce that product distribution for the UK Cinema market will now be handled by Harman Pro Group exclusive brand distributor Sound Technology Ltd based in Letchworth, Hertfordshire.  JBL and Crown are confident that with local sales support, service, and spare parts availability provided by Sound Technology, and the combined proven performance of JBL/Crown cinema systems, the UK cinema business will be well served.  Sound Technology has been excellent partners in all aspects of the Harman professional business, and with the cinema sales experience of Gareth Collyer we expect the future cinema business in the UK to prosper."

David Marshall, managing director, Sound Technology Ltd. commented, “We are very pleased to be able to expand our company into another vertical market and address the cinema industry with what are market leading, ground breaking products from JBL and Crown.  We believe we can successfully serve the needs of this market, providing the necessary support and one-stop system solutions at a local level.”
