Midas and Klark Teknik have brought U.K. product distributorship in house, with Rob Hughes, previously employed by Shuttlesound to handle the brands, joining Midas and Klark Teknik to continue his role as U.K. sales consultant.

“With the U.K. being one of the most influential markets in concert touring, it warrants direct access to the factory,” says Hughes. “With this move, U.K. customers will have the direct support of not only me, but also Karl Brant and his service team, technical sales manager Jason Kelly and brand development manager Richard Ferriday, plus the factory demo facilities.”

Adds Midas and Klark Teknik sales and marketing director David Cooper, “This is a fascinating time for Midas and Klark Teknik, both in the UK and internationally, and the future for the brands looks very exciting. As Midas and KT are UK based, it makes sense for the Kidderminster HQ to run UK distribution.

“Given the ongoing success of the Midas XL8 and PRO6 digital systems and increasingly complex Klark Teknik products, it’s important that we maintain strong personal relationships with rental companies, sound engineers and end users, which the move will facilitate. This closer relationship with our customers will have the added benefit of providing useful feedback for both new and existing products.

“Over the past couple of months we have worked in conjunction with Shuttlesound regarding the move, and by taking Midas and KT out of Shuttlesound, it will allow them to free up valuable resources and focus on the Electro-Voice brand, so customers win all round.”
