United Kingdom (November 21, 2013)—Loudspeaker company Turbosound will relocate its headquarters to Manchester, UK, when the lease ends at its current headquarters location in Sussex, UK. As a result, Turbosound’s manufacturing will move to premises owned by MUSIC Group in Kidderminster, which serves as Midas and Klark Teknik’s UK manufacturing facility and MUSIC Group’s European Care Centre.
Turbosound’s research and development activities will relocate to MUSIC Group’s research facility in Manchester, which houses more than 60 engineers responsible for Midas and Klark Teknik research and development. Existing staff have been offered the opportunity to relocate to the new premises.
“I am very excited about the future of our Professional Division and Turbosound is an integral part of our Vision,” commented Nigel Beaumont, senior vice president, Professional Division. “Our long term strategy includes the opening of a new acoustic and digital research facility in Manchester which will allow the integration of Midas and Klark Teknik’s world-class digital technology expertise with Turbosound’s award-winning speaker technology. MUSIC Group also recently acquired multi-patented and cutting-edge technology for steerable line arrays that allows the control of up to eight beams simultaneously, which combined with our in-house expertise will give us a major lead against our competitors.”
Beaumont said the company also plans to release its largest range of new Turbosound procuts at the 2014 Winter NAMM show (January 23 to 26, Anaheim, CA).
