Owners of UK manufacturer, 4HM, Barry Revels and Craig Lovell, have bought into fellow UK business, Bel Digital Audio, to create a new holding company called Bel Digital Group and merging 4HM into Bel Digital Audio.
4HM specialises in MADI-related equipment for the professional audio, broadcast and live industries, while Bel Digital Audio provides broadcasters throughout the world with delays, layoff recorders and a comprehensive range of in-rack monitoring solutions.
The merged companies create an expanded business of non-overlapping yet highly complementary products, and will deliver the associated benefits of being a larger business to customers, from product development through significant investment in R&D, to the adoption of new technologies.
“The formation of the Bel Digital Group enables us to enhance the Bel brand further with an ever increasing range of audio products, including the existing MADI and forthcoming Audio Over IP units said Lovell. “It’s exciting to bring these two product lines together as one,” added Revels.
