CUK Audio has announced an exclusive partnership with PVS nv of Belgium for the distribution of their three brands, AUDAC, Caymon and Procab, throughout the UK, effective from October 1.
AUDAC offers an extensive range of audio products designed for the fixed installation market, from digital matrix systems to loudspeakers, amplifiers, preamps, microphones and wall plates. Caymon and Procab provide racks, flight casing and cables.
CUK Audio MD Stuart Thomson says: “From the very beginning, our biggest challenge has been to find great audio products at the lower end of the price range. To cater for this highly competitive part of the market, more often than not manufacturers simply buy a Chinese product off the shelf, modify it a bit and then brand it as their own. While that may work for loudspeakers, in our experience it’s not a good approach for electronics as they are usually designed for Europe. Consequently they are often unable to handle the higher mains voltage in the UK which makes them inherently unreliable.”
Thomson describes finding AUDAC as uncovering a hidden gem.
“Our visit to their Belgian premises was a real eye-opener,” he says. “We were completely bowled over by the range and scope of their services, not to mention the quality of their products. We’re equally proud to be distributing the other PVS brands, namely Caymon who offer a great range of equipment racks, flight cases, accessories and stands; and Procab with its immense range of bulk and pre-made cables.”
AUDAC’s export manager, Mark Asselberghs, says: “CUK Audio is a well-established AV distributor who knows their market inside-out.”
