Ann Arbor, MI (April 30, 2018)–Custom audio/AV solutions manufacturer Leon Speakers has acquired Terra Speakers, a Maine-based manufacturer of all-weather speakers, with the intent of expanding its residential and commercial product offerings.
The two companies have collaborated for more than a decade with Leon president Noah Kaplan and Terra president James Banfield reportedly working together extensively on product development. Terra’s All Climate FIVE line of all-weather loudspeakers was designed in partnership with Kaplan, and Leon’s Boundary Series outdoor speakers are made with drivers manufactured by Terra at its Maine plant.
“We’ve been collaborating with Terra for years now, and over that time, we’ve found that our companies share a lot of the same core values and the common vision of creating high-performance, design-driven audio products that are made right here in America,” said Kaplan in a statement. “We’re both passionate about art, music, design and craftsmanship, and Terra’s strong expertise in the outdoor market will be a huge asset to our company.”
“The merger just made sense for us and for Leon,” said Banfield. “We are especially excited, as it brings Terra to a larger base of customers, reps, and dealers. And it will mean that our collective products can continue to grow, while continuing to keep our operations here in the country. Both companies are able to assure quality because we make our products from start to finish right in house.”
