Harman Professional Solutions has announced that the full range of Martin by Harman professional lighting will be supplied and represented in the UK by Harman partner Sound Technology.
Since 2008, Sound Technology has distributed Harman audio solutions and services to customers supplying a wide range of market sectors.
Representing a major expansion for the Hertfordshire-based company, a new dedicated professional lighting team incorporating sales, marketing, support and service is being established, with Ritchie Reed already in place as business development manager, professional lighting.
“We are immensely proud and excited to be representing the full Martin portfolio,” commented David Marshall, MD, Sound Technology. “Whilst we see clear synergies in terms of customer base and market sectors we already operate in, our new professional lighting team will be focused exclusively on the management and development of the Martin brand in the UK.”
The return to UK distribution from a direct model will result in streamlined logistics for customers, claims the company, with Sound Technology holding substantial Martin stock in the UK, and a supply of spare parts locally.
Sound Technology’s existing 4,000sqft demonstration facility is already equipped with Martin lighting and will be expanded with additional fixtures. An Open Day on 14 November will provide the opportunity to see the demo facility and, in particular, experience the MAC Encore.
Jonas Stenvinkel, group director entertainment EMEA, Harman Professional Solutions, commented: “We are very pleased about this expansion of our partnership, Sound Technology has been our distributor in the UK for many years, and with their strong representation across the country, we believe the expansion of our great partnership will lead to a mutually beneficial future for both companies“
