Behringer Buys Turbosound
MUSIC Group, the name of the Behringer’s “parent” company has announced the acquisition of professional loudspeaker manufacturer, Turbosound. Based in West Sussex, England, Turbosound has remained at the forefront of loudspeaker technology for more than three decades, and has earned the prestigious Queen’s Award three times including for Innovation in 2012. The acquisition continues the global contraction in the loudspeaker market.
The addition of Turbosound allows MUSIC Group to round out their professional and touring sound offerings alongside Midas and Klark Teknik. “Since the acquisition of Midas and Klark Teknik we have been pursuing a loudspeaker brand that complements the consoles and processing offered by these historic brands,” says Uli Behringer, founder and CEO of Behringer.
Aimed at delivering complete system solutions to Touring and Install customers, the combination of brands represents a new range of choice for the most demanding of application. It is expected that TURBOSOUND will benefit from MUSIC Group’s extensive infrastructure while retaining their own manufacturing, sales, marketing, and distribution network worldwide.
