New York (August 3, 2005)–Boutique power amp manufacturers Camco GmbH and Ashly Audio Inc. have joined forces in the USA to offer a single catalog of amplification and signal processing products. As of August 1, Ashly Audio is now the North American importer and distributor of Camco amplifier products. According to a company statement, the Camco range of power amplifiers and networkable DSP products “dovetails comfortably with the Ashly Audio portfolio.”
Camco International sales director Mick Anderson and Ashly Audio CEO Dave Parse are both excited about the prospects of the venture. “This is the first time Ashly has taken on representation of a third-party product line,” said Anderson, “and there are many reasons why it is such a mutually beneficial arrangement. Not only does Ashly Audio have an excellent skills base, but it also has a philosophy which truly interlocks with Camco’s own. On a practical level, Ashly has a strong presence in the sound contracting market, and the tools to expand it using elements of the Camco range: in turn, top-end products like Camco’s Vortex Series high-power pro amplifiers will provide Ashly’s sales network with access to new markets in professional touring.”
Ashly Audio’s Parse added, “I am thrilled that Ashly has the opportunity to increase our level of involvement with a company of such high caliber. With this new exclusive United States distribution agreement with Camco, Ashly will be able to effectively expand Camco’s presence in the professional sound marketplace.”
As a result of the arrangement, Ashly Audio will present the Camco range for the first time at the fall AES in New York City, October 7-10.
