Worldwide trade distributor John Hornby Skewes & Co. (JHS) is delighted to announce that, effective 1 June 2013, it will be the exclusive UK and Eire distributor for the Vienna-designed Lewitt microphone brand. Lewitt was founded in 2008 by CEO Roman Perschon, and has since earned itself an impressive range of professional endorsees such as David Crosby and Bootsy Collins. Some of the world's biggest pop acts – Adele, Jennifer Lopez and Black Eyed Peas – are also using Lewitt mics onstage. Dennis Drumm, JHS's managing director, said: “We are truly delighted to be working with a mic brand which, although young, is already so complete, so mature and with clearly so much potential. Roman Perschon and his team have an enviable pedigree. The Lewitt brand offers the magical combination of true value and exceptional performance.” Roman Perschon, CEO of Lewitt, added: “The extensive network offered by JHS will lead to a significant increase in Lewitt’s availability and visibility. It allows precise communication of our company’s core values as well as our products’ competitive advantages to a highly relevant and influential market: on-the-spot communication and distribution services are just as important to us as providing the best possible product quality. We have every confidence of being perfectly represented by JHS.” A comprehensive selection of the Lewitt lineup will be on display at the JHS Event 2013 trade show from 9-12 June at JHS's Garforth, Leeds headquarters.
