London, England (July 31, 2006)–This year, HHB Communications is celebrating 30 years in business. The occasion was marked with a party at the Belvedere in London’s Holland Park on June 24, at which staff, customers, suppliers and friends from as far as the U.S., Canada, India, Thailand and Europe, gathered to enjoy a relaxed get together on a perfect English summer’s day.
HHB directors, customers, staff and friends gather to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary.”We’ve always tried to run a quality business and be a source of advice and support to our customers,” commented HHB’s founder and managing director, Ian Jones, who is celebrating his 50th birthday this year. “We’re proud of the role the company has played in pioneering digital audio technology, and of our continued innovation with such groundbreaking products as our own HHB FlashMic–the world’s first digital recording microphone.”
Today, HHB is active as a reseller, supplying products from more than 150 leading manufacturers. As a U.K. distributor, they represent such brands as Røde, Eventide, PreSonus and Lynx. As a manufacturer, HHB produces such products as the PortaDrive location sound recorder, the aforementioned FlashMic and a range of professional recording media.
Counting many major broadcasters, recording facilities, artists and educational establishments among its customers, HHB publishes an annual 164-page product catalogue. Most recently, HHB increased its commitment to the post-production sector by opening a specialist division-Scrub–in the heart of the Soho film and television community.
“Thirty years is a significant milestone,” continued Jones. “The company continues to go from strength to strength and, with the hard work of our staff and the continued support of our customers and suppliers, HHB has grown to become one of the most successful professional audio businesses in the U.K. On behalf of my fellow directors, I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to that success, and look forward to the next 30 years in the industry we all enjoy so much.”
