Contact Distribution Appointed For Canadian Market
Following the inauguration last year of EM Acoustics North America, the British loudspeaker manufacturer has announced the appointment of Canadian pro audio distribution specialists, Contact Distribution. Based in Toronto, Ontario, Contact covers the whole of Canada and also works closely with a number of trusted contacts in the US.
EM Acoustics’ operations director, Mike Wheeler, is delighted with the new partnership. “Contact Distribution is a leading pro audio distributor in Canada with nearly 30 years of specialist pro audio knowledge and experience,” he said. “They only work with the best and have developed their product portfolio based on quality – that is both quality of the products and the quality of the relationships with the people behind the products. Our partnership is a testament both to the quality of EM Acoustics products and Contact’s continued desire to strive for something more than others are delivering. We feel that our two companies complement each other perfectly and look forward to building our business together in Canada.”
Bill Coons, Director of Contact Distribution is in full agreement. “Let’s be honest – there are far too many speaker manufacturers out there in the market that regrettably are mediocre in performance, unprofitable and involve passionless individuals that lack the commitment that professional speaker manufacturing mandates. Ed [Kinsella] and Mike [Wheeler] are the ‘real deal’ and you can tell that the minute you hear their products and even more so when you meet or talk to them. In the top echelon of the performance speaker market EM has already carved themselves out a foundation of significant iconic venue installs as well as the support of equally iconic consultants and sound designers.” He added. “EM in a number of countries are now considered one of the top four hi performance loudspeaker brands and we see it quickly being accepted to the same degree throughout North America. EM Acoustics will be a beneficial addition to our portfolio.”
