TORONTO, ON (June 25, 2018)
German Pro Audio Manufacturer, HK Audio, will be joining Yorkville Sound's family of distributed lines for North American distribution. Yorkville Sound's Canadian and US customers can now gain access to HK Audio's full product line, including cabinets, subwoofers, stage monitors and PA systems.
The partnership is a natural progression for both, Yorkville Sound and HK Audio. The two companies have formed a strong bond as Yorkville Sound has been the distributor for HK Audio's sister company, Hughes & Kettner Guitar Amps, for the better part of a decade. Last April, Hughes & Kettner awarded Yorkville Sound with "Best GrandMeister Sales" for 2017. The award was presented during Hughes & Kettner's International Distributor's Meeting at the MusikMesse trade show in Frankfurt, Germany.
HK Audio's CEO, Nils Stamer sees the partnership as a strong strategic move: "By teaming up with Yorkville Sound, HK Audio has found a veteran partner with over 55 years' experience distributing PA and lighting products in North America. Yorkville Sound has a vast dealer network, a highly experienced rep force, and proven success with their own manufactured PA products."
Jeff Cowling, Yorkville Sound's VP of Sales & Marketing is pleased to grow the HK family within North America: "For the last twenty years, HK Audio has become a name in Europe associated with high quality live sound reinforcement systems. We have a longstanding track record with Hughes & Kettner that spans for most of a decade. Now, with HK Audio under the same roof, we can offer our North American Retailers the opportunity to work with our trusted team for all HK Audio brands including the LUCAS, ELEMENTS, and LINEAR 3 lines that have made HK Audio renowned for Pro Audio excellence."
