South Windsor, CT (May 28, 2009)–Telefunken USA has been named the Elektroakustik (translation: Electrical Acoustics) arm of Telefunken and awarded the exclusive rights to manufacture a variety of professional audio products and vacuum tubes bearing the Telefunken name, in over 27 countries worldwide.
Telefunken Elektroakustik is now in position to use the Telefunken trademarks for professional audio equipment in North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Telefunken USA CEO Toni Fishman and director of Operations Alan Veniscofsky recently returned from Frankfurt, Germany, where they attended a meeting of the Telefunken worldwide Partner Alliance. Telefunken Holding AG, the umbrella company that controls the worldwide rights to the Telefunken trademark outside of the United States, sponsored the meeting.
Participants in the conference included Telefunken licensees from Germany, France, Italy, Greece, Spain, various East European countries, Russia, Israel, Middle and Far East. Telefunken Holding AG CEO Hemjö Klein, former board member of Lufthansa Airlines, hosted the meeting, which resulted in the renaming of the USA branch of the company.
Telefunken Elektroakustik has plans to expand its current professional microphone product line in 2009 to offer outboard signal processing equipment, vacuum tubes, and other ancillary recording and professional audio products.
