McCauley Sound Expands with European Branch
New Facilty to Manage European Distribution, Training & Support Puyallup, WA – March 11th, 2005 - McCauley Sound, Inc., a leading manufacturer of professional sound reinforcement loudspeaker systems, today announced a new corporate branch office purposed to serving the European marketplace. Officially designated as McCauley Sound Europe, this new regional facility is tasked with overseeing the entire distribution network for the European territory and managing McCauley Sound’s business partnerships with Europe’s leading sound reinforcement touring, production and installation companies.
“Opening a localized office is a natural step forward for McCauley Sound; our growth worldwide has been tremendous, especially here in Europe, after our victory at the 2004 Olympic Games.” Said Evgueni Sam Ocean; executive vice president / co-owner of McCauley Sound. “By concluding this stage of our corporate expansion, McCauley Sound is now positioned to respond more effectively to the European marketplace’s demand for our sound reinforcement technologies and related support programs.”
This direct expansion will allow McCauley Sound to be highly tuned into the region’s needs and activities, and will dramatically improve their responsiveness and availability to the European sound reinforcement professional.
Based in the Netherlands, McCauley Sound Europe will benefit from its close proximity to the world’s largest seaport; offering the widest range of options with regards to product shipping and receiving. Holland’s status as a European Union “Free Economic Zone” provides McCauley Sound’s European distribution partners with another benefit; the continent’s most lenient and flexible tax and tariffs schema by which they may purchase and distribute McCauley products.
McCauley Sound Europe’s multi-lingual staff is made up of all highly-qualified sound reinforcement professionals with extensive backgrounds in touring and installation, allowing them to provide expert support for McCauley’s sound reinforcement technologies. More than just a remote office, McCauley Sound Europe also provides extensive warehouse space for receiving and stocking product destined for McCauley Sound’s European distribution partners…while their highly qualified staff will be available for conducting product demonstrations, training seminars and clinics, and other vital technical support roles.
“Collectively, our staff has over a hundred years of experience in professional sound reinforcement.” Said Ferdinand Gerritsen Mulkes, a Netherlands native and McCauley Sound Europe’s Managing Director. He continues, “It is my role to coordinate, educate and ultimately support the full potential of the legendary McCauley brand here on the continent. With our staff’s experience and McCauley Sound’s twenty-five year history of industry-shaping designs and innovations, I see a very bright future for our European distribution network.”
