Three British console companies have combined to create a new professional audio group. Allen & Heath, Calrec and DiGiCo, with the consultation of Electra Partners have come together with DiGiCo managing director James Gordon as CEO.
“We have bold plans for the group but it is imperative that each company maintains its own independence and style,” said Gordon. “None of these brands needs to trade off each other’s technology or reputation.”
“These are three great companies and all the brands currently in the group have enviable reputations for technology, audio quality, reliability and perhaps, most importantly, customer focus and care. The strategy is to share technology and resource across the group and allow some interconnectivity across the product lines.”
Glenn Rogers, managing director of Allen & Heath, added, “The creation of the group with DiGiCo and their management is an impressive combination. It will certainly add new momentum to what Allen & Heath and Calrec had already planned for the future.”
Henry Goodman, Calrec’s sales and marketing director, commented that “This exciting formation gives Calrec new opportunities for swifter development of a host of ideas we have been wanting to bring to the market.”
