Focal, a specialist loudspeaker and headphone company based in Saint Etienne, France, has announced the appointment of OneAV as the UK distributor of its flush-mount speaker range for the CI channel.
Responsible for all sales and support of Focal’s latest flush-mount and Classic Speaker ranges into the channel, OneAV will be working closely with the Focal UK team to proactively develop the brand’s CI strategy in the UK, offering dedicated training and pre-sales support along with product fulfilment.
Commenting on the appointment, James Trumper, sales director at OneAV, said: “Focal speakers are the epitome of the One AV promise – technical excellence but reasonably priced. We’re incredibly excited to be entering the audio space with such a prominent tier one brand.”
Andy Oattes, head of sales UK at Focal, added: “I’m delighted to be working with such a young but highly focussed and driven team. One AV is a superb match for us at Focal and we have some very exciting plans for the future. We see great possibilities and it’s particularly nice to be working with a team that think so progressively.”
Unveiled at ISE 2018, Focal’s latest range of CI products brings together the research and development utilised for its home audio products into a concise range of flush-mount speakers. Three ranges are available: the entry-level 100 Series, the mid-level 300 Series and the range-topping Electra Series. Matching the technology of its award-winning range of Classic speaker products to deliver a similar sound signature for easy mix and matching, the performance of Focal’s range of flush-mount speakers now epitomise the brand’s message that CI can be Hi-Fi.
