A distributor for several professional audio and live performance brands, Group One will offer RTW’s audio products as part of a complete solution for customers looking for high-quality audio metering equipment.
Group One will work with RTW’s existing local dealers including GMA, Recording Media, AID and Dale Pro Audio, in order to make it easier for them to source RTW products. The new relationship is expected to reduce lead-time dramatically as Group One will handle all local stock.
“Group One’s expanding broadcast division, headed up by vice president Chris Fichera, will manage our Blue Sky Monitor Speakers, Digico broadcast consoles, Junger Audio Processors and of course RTW meters,” said Jack Kelly, president, of Group One. “Each of these product lines is deeply involved in today’s production environments, with specific emphasis on both 5.1 surround and loudness control issues. RTW, with its 40-plus years of experience in the design and development of audio technology, provides world-class metering for both of those issues and we are very pleased to welcome these products to our arsenal.”
“It is an honor to be able to work with such a prestigious, experienced company as Group One,” added Jochen Wainright, international sales manager at RTW. “Our business in the US has been growing rapidly thanks to the introduction of the new TouchMonitor, as well as the interest in our other products. It became clear rather quickly that it was time for RTW to partner with a company in the United States in order to make our products more easily available. Plus now, our local partners have a US contact which will allow us to become more active with our demos in the US market.”
