Concert Sound Clair rebrands as Clair UK8 February 2013
Concert Sound Clair has changed its trading name to Clair UK, further emphasising its role as part of the Clair Global touring/rental PA giant.
Aron Ross (pictured), Clair UK’s general manager, commented: “I see our name change as a logical move forward to reinforce our position as part of the Clair Global network. We are still the same individuals and this rebranding simply presents a united front, and underlines that we are delivering the same service that has been provided in the US and Europe for many years. It’s a name and legacy that we are very proud to share.”
Concert Sound was formed in 1977, and soon after began working closely as the UK touring partner to US-based Clair Brothers. At the end of 2008, Concert Sound joined forces with Switzerland’s AudioRent Clair, becoming the UK wing of the Clair Global family.
Most recently, Clair Brothers Audio Systems, the audio equipment division of Clair Global debuted its new iMicro compact line array system. Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson was the first to take iMicro on tour in the UK.
Among Clair’s current touring clients are Fleetwood Mac, Jay-Z and Kanye West and Sir Elton John. www.clairglobal.co.uk
