Sonifex, manufacturer of audio and video products for radio and TV studios, has acquired Australian broadcast manufacturer and distributor Innes Corporation. This is the UK company’s first international acquisition.
Innes Corporation manufactures a range of PCIe PC cards which include professional analogue and digital audio cards, AM, FM and DAB+ radio capture cards together with Flashlog, a multichannel audio logger.
Managing director of Sonifex Marcus Brooke, comments: “We’ve been involved with Innes Corporation for some time, recently acting as a manufacturer for their audio cards. I was so impressed with the quality and versatility of the audio cards that when we discussed further collaboration, we realised that there was a great opportunity for us to leverage our international marketing skills to sell the Innes PCIe cards to a larger market. In addition, we can combine our R&D departments to work in partnership on some interesting new products.”
General manager of Innes Corporation Karen Olliver, says: “Between Sonifex, John Innes and Innes Corporation we have over 70 years of combined experience in the broadcast industry. We’ll still be offering our customers and suppliers the exceptional level of service and support that they’ve come to expect from us while drawing on a greater pool of technical resources.”
