Antwerp, Belgium (October 1, 2019)—Biamp has opened its new European headquarters in Antwerp, Belgium, co-located in the facilities of Apart Audio, which Biamp acquired in July 2019 along with Community Loudspeakers.
The Belgian facility includes office space, training rooms, warehousing, technical support, finance, sales administration and a fully equipped Biamp experience center to provide support for customers, partners, and end users.
Kris Vermuyten, former CEO of Apart Audio, has been promoted to general manager, Biamp Europe, and will oversee Biamp’s European operation. The new headquarters will strengthen the company’s sales, support, and distribution in the region as Biamp focuses on rapid investment and expansion in the market.
In the wake of acquiring Apart Audio and Community Loudspeakers, Biamp is forming two new sales teams, a retail sales group and large-venue sales group, composed of professionals from the acquired companies to focus specifically on identifying and closing opportunities in those sectors. All products within the merged portfolios will be sold and supported through Biamp’s global sales and service organization, with regionally located stocking and fulfillment.
“Biamp’s European headquarters will provide the region with enhanced logistics, support, and overall service for our customers and partners, and will extend Biamp’s leadership in the European pro AV market. I am excited to lead the team as we bring Biamp’s innovative communications solutions to a quickly growing community of customers,” Vermuyten said.
