Studiomaster signs major European distribution agreement with EMD Music
UK – Studiomaster, the UK headquartered MI and pro audio brand, has signed a major MI and pro audio retail distribution agreement with EMD Music, for Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Switzerland.
The agreement, with one of Europe’s largest MI and pro audio retail distributors, follows a number of successive years of increasing growth for Studiomaster’s European export business, out of its Milton Keynes HQ.
“We have being growing our European market share significantly,” explains general manager Patrick Almond, “particularly in the last two years, when the rate of increase began accelerating to a point where it became clear that we needed to find a suitable partner with the presence on the ground to sustain further expansion. The search for the partner that could effectively support us across all of these territories, and provide us with the necessary market exposure to continue our growth strategy and fulfil our targets, led us to EMD Music.”
The agreement covers Studiomaster’s comprehensive range of analogue and innovative digital mixers and mixing consoles, entry level and mid-market self powered and passive PA and installation loudspeaker solutions, portable PA systems, and the hugely popular range of Carlsbro CSD electronic drum kits. With the first shipments arriving in its 12,000 square metre warehousing facility imminently, the agreement significantly broadens EMD Music’s PA offering to European retailers. "Studiomaster is a great British heritage brand with so much history the world of music entertainment. It is the perfect line that we have been looking for, to expand our business in the P.A. sector,” confirms Serge Alsteens, sales director, EMD Group.
