Leeds, UK (July 12, 2006)–Independent UK distributor John Hornby Skewes & Co. Ltd., has been appointed the new and exclusive UK & Eire distributor for the LA Audio range of professional signal processors and accessories, effective from September 1, 2006. The upcoming PLASA show at London’s Earls Court on September 10-13 will mark the UK public show launch of the LA Audio/JHS association.
The UK-manufactured LA Audio range is designed for sound reinforcement, fixed install and studio applications, bringing fresh thinking to a variety of applications.

“Here at Audient we are very pleased to be working with JHS as the new UK distributor,” added LA Audio sales & marketing director, Luke Baldry. “We see a great synergy between the two companies in terms of our business philosophies and our approach to customer support. I’m sure that this relationship will bring us even closer to our customers and help us provide them with the tools and the expertise to produce the highest quality possible for sound reinforcement and installation systems.”
