Tommex rocks on with Cadac appointment21 August 2015
UK-based console manufacturer Cadac has appointed Tommex as its exclusive distributor for Poland.
“Cadac fulfills perfectly our projects in the fixed installations sector, and for us this is the first step,” says Marcin Zimny, Tommex’s commercial director. “Most of these projects have a public sector investor, so we compete via detailed tenders. We design systems to meet the project specifications, incorporating our loudspeaker and amplifier brands and cooperate with our competitors using consoles already available in Polish market. Now Cadac will enable us to specify systems for these projects entirely from our own portfolio.
“We currently have two projects in the pipeline where we have signed contracts and we will deliver a Cadac CDC six console with stageracks to work with Dynacord loudspeakers on one project, and a CDC four:m with stagerack and Community I Series for the other.”
Tommex can trace its origins back to the Communist era of the 1970s, when founder Jan Tomasz Zebrowski founded a workshop in Warsaw to distribute and service Dynacord equipment in Poland. By the time Poland became a democracy, the company was servicing many state theatres and concert venues, and had become a gateway for professional audio equipment into several Soviet bloc republics. With democratisation came the opportunity to expand and take on the distribution of western audio brands.
Today the company has five branch offices throughout Poland and a roster of top international brands that includes Bosch, Community, Dynacord, Sennheiser and Televic.
Richard Ferriday, Cadac director of sales and marketing, concludes: “I have had the pleasure of working with Tommex in the past and experienced first-hand the professional integrity, knowledge, enthusiasm, and leading customer support which defines [the company].”
