Beaverton, OR (February 11, 2011)–Audio test and measurement company Audio Precision announced that 2010 was its best year ever for both sales and unit volume shipped.
Last year saw the most successful product launch in AP’s history: the APx515 production test audio analyzer. Also in 2010, customers took to the new BW52 ultrahigh bandwidth option and AG52 high performance generator option for the APx525 audio analyzer.
“2010 was a great year thanks to a combination of new products and pent-up demand from 2009,” says Dave Schmoldt, “But this year we’re forecasting sales of APx515 alone to be three times that of 2010 and we’re introducing some exciting new measurement capabilities that have some pent-up demand of their own, so 2011 should be pretty hot too.”
In the wake of these results, the copmany is expanding its team of sales engineers in the US in the first half of 2011 to serve all US customers directly, rather than through independent representatives. In addition to the factory in Beaverton, Oregon and offices in Los Angeles and the Bay Area of California, new offices are being opened in the Boston / Cambridge metro region and in Dallas / Austin, Texas.
“We are looking forward to establishing even closer relationships with our customers in the U.S,” says Schmoldt. “This move will give our customers better access to the full extent of AP’s resources: more up-to-date solutions, more training, and all the other benefits a direct line to the Factory brings.”
The company’s board of directors awarded the accolade of 2010 Sales Partner of the Year to Chinese distributor AP Technology, for achieving exceptional growth over the past 12 months.
