Chicago, IL (November 24, 2020)—Expanding its footprint in the conferencing audio ecosystem market, Shure has acquired California-based Midas Technology, Inc., also known as Stem Audio, which specializes in providing a suite of products including table, ceiling and wall microphones as well as loudspeakers, control interfaces and hubs.
With the acquisition of Stem Audio, Shure aims to further expand and diversify its solution offering for organizations of all sizes, while Stem will gain access to the global infrastructure and support capabilities that Shure provides.
“We both believe in ecosystems. Working together, we aim to provide customers with better options to deploy great audio in more spaces, more cost effectively and more quickly,” said Chris Schyvinck, president and CEO, Shure. “Shure and Stem Audio understand the importance of good quality audio and taking care of customers, so this acquisition is a great fit for both organizations.”
According to Shure, the addition of the company complements Shure’s product offering and provides customers with a greater choice of products as their needs evolve. “We’re thrilled to be joining a company with an unrivaled pedigree and history in manufacturing audio products,” said Jacob Marash, CEO and founder, Stem Audio. “Shure’s scale and global reach will help make Stem Audio products more available to customers, providing improved value, quality and support.”
The two companies will continue to operate separately as integration plans for sales and support are finalized. Future plans for the respective product portfolios will be shared later. In the meantime, customers will continue to buy and receive support for Stem Audio products from Stem Audio’s current channels, including StemAudio.com in the U.S. market.
This acquisition also includes Midas’ Phoenix Audio Technologies brand.
