Recently launched U.K. manufacturer Optimal Audio, which offers a suite of control and amplification products as well as loudspeakers for small- to medium-sized commercial installations, has announced the appointment of Quebec-based Erikson Pro as its exclusive distributor in Canada.
A successful presence in the Canadian market for more than 25 years, Erikson Pro, part of JAM Industries, distributes a range of quality brands to the audio and lighting sectors, including Allen & Heath, Audient, Chauvet Professional and Martin Audio. Through a network of exclusive representatives, the company maintains close relationships with resellers, consultants and professionals across the sector in providing high levels of customer service and technical support.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Erikson in what is a large and important market,” says Dom Harter, managing director of Optimal Audio. “As part of the Focusrite Group, we’re familiar with Erikson’s excellent work with our sister brand Martin Audio, and consequently approach this partnership full of confidence that our fledgling brand is in the best possible hands.”
Erikson Pro vice president Christian Bouchard adds, “Our long-standing relationship with Dom Harter along with our involvement in the commercial sector through our dedicated division, meant that it was an entirely natural progression for us to work with Optimal Audio. We are excited by the innovation and excellence of Optimal Audio — the added value in performance technology it offers will have a strong appeal for installers seeking superior quality in audio playback, whilst efficiently maintaining the essentials of public address.”
