Farmingdale, NY (June 12, 2009)–Brescia, Italy-based pro audio manufacturer Outline has inaugurated its American branch, Outline North America LLC, led by Thomas Bensen.
Bensen has 30 years of experience in the industry. For several years, he has helmed the U.S. branch of another Italian company, amplifier manufacturer Powersoft. Outline N.A.’s head office is located in Farmingdale, NY.
Giorgio Biffi, Outline’s international sales and marketing director, comments, “I’ve known Tom Bensen for quite a long time and have been impressed by his career and the way he always been very successful in introducing high-class brands to the U.S. market. Before we set up our relationship with Tom, I had individually met a number of people in the U.S. pro audio market who have a great and deep respect for him. His current successful venture with Powersoft was further proof of his skill and experience, so we are absolutely convinced that he is the perfect professional person to represent our quality products.”
Bensen states, “I’m proud to be part of the Outline family. This is a company that has vision–it has a tremendous eye towards the future. It has a great resource in its R&D, and I see nothing but amazing things happening for Outline. The future of pro audio belongs to the companies that have really learned to embrace volumetric efficiency and low impact. I think that Outline is to loudspeakers what Powersoft is to amplifiers. Take the new Mantas vertical line array, for example. The thing weighs little more that 50 pounds with all of its hardware; it’s extremely high-output, extremely lightweight, easy to deploy. We are trying to save on energy, we are trying to save on trucking, we are trying to save money. The response in America has been really one of great anticipation waiting for this product line to really develop and come in.”
