In the wake of news which emerged during the PLASA Show that Midas and Klark Teknik are to create more than 50 new jobs across the business – a development that will include the doubling in size of the Manchester R&D centre – the latter brand has released more details of its recruitment intentions for marketing, research, development, customer support and manufacturing personnel.
A ‘major’ new investment will see Klark Teknik enter new market sectors with a host of products, including feature-enhanced amplifiers and loudspeakers, specialist audio mixers and studio monitors, professional DJ mixers, and USB and FireWire audio interfaces.
Klark Teknik will also continue to develop its core expertise in signal processing and digital audio networking.
Jonathan Chitty (pictured), vp of customer support for Midas/Klark Teknik, commented: “For some time, Klark Teknik has existed in the shadow of the Midas brand. The time has come to put the brand on the same level footing as Midas with a large range of innovative and exciting new products. The future for Klark Teknik is looking extremely bright and will re-energise everyone’s perception of the brand. A key component will be the recruitment of a dedicated KT brand manager, and talented design engineers in the UK. We are right now actively seeking the right people.”
