PLASA 2014: Shure to distribute WORK Pro Audio range7 October 2014
Shure Distribution UK (SDUK) announced at PLASA 2014 that is taking on the WORK Pro Audio range. Manufactured by Spanish audio company Equipson, founded in 1995 and based in Valencia, WORK Pro Audio products are aimed at sound reinforcement and live sound applications. Effective immediately, SDUK will be responsible for all sales and technical support for WORK Pro Audio products in the UK and Ireland, replacing all previous UK distributors of the brand.
Highlights of the WORK Pro Audio range include loudspeakers, amplifiers and DSP digital matrix products which are described as providing a quality alternative for installation projects of all budgets. The most recent addition to the brand is the BlueLine Digital range, a cost-effective, modular audio-over-IP system for integrators and installers.
SDUK is also acting as distributor in the UK for Work Lifters, and can deal with all enquiries regarding sales or technical support with immediate effect. Work Lifters is the leading brand of professional lifting towers in Europe, with over 20 different safety lifters for audio and lighting functions.
“Equipson’s WORK PRO brand is a valuable addition to our portfolio, offering our business partners a more accesible and versatile range of products for a wide range of installed sound applications,” said Peter James, managing director of SDUK (right of picture, with Equipson’s Juan Jose Vila). “The WORK brand has previously enjoyed great success in the UK and with their much wider range of products, I’m confident of further successes. We look forward to a long and mutually profitable working relationship.”
“The UK market is very important to us, and our product line has expanded tremendously in the last four years,” said Juan Jose Vila, director of products and marketing at Equipson. “The time was right for us to appoint a distributor who would promote and support our full range of products. With their highly regarded reputation for sales, service and technical support, Shure Distribution UK are a perfect fit for us in the UK and Ireland.”
