Apex Audio NV, the Belgium-based manufacturing, distribution and solutions company of some 22 years’ standing, filed for bankruptcy with the Hasselt Court on Thursday 17 October. Company director Paul van Hees has been in touch with PSNEurope to confirm the situation but declined to comment further.
According to a report in online Belgian resource Made in Limburg, the administrator for Apex has been named as Bussers Patrick (+32 11 35 1909; firstname.lastname@example.org). All concerned parties are requested to contact him by 17 November.
Apex Audio was formed in 1991 by van Hees and Eddy Bergers (formerly of electrical giant Philips), and the company’s first product was the PE-133, which combined both graphic and parametric equalisers. The most recent design was the Intelli-X2 48 192kHz processor.
As of October, Apex, based in Beringen-Paal to the north-east of Brussels, comprised three subsidiaries, (Apex BeLux, Apex Holland and Apex France), employing around 18 staff. Renaud Schoonbroodt, R&D director since 2000, had already left the business.
Apex was a distributor of a great number of brands across several sectors, including DHD, AVT, Coda, DiGiCo, Genelec, Mogami, Riedel and Sonifex.
