MI and pro audio brand Studiomaster has signed a major MI and pro audio retail distribution agreement with EMD Music, for Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands and Switzerland.

The agreement follows a number of successive years of increasing growth for Studiomaster’s European export business, out of its Milton Keynes’ HQ.

“We have being growing our European market share significantly,” explained general manager Patrick Almond, “particularly in the past two years, when the rate of increase began accelerating to a point where it became clear that we needed to find a suitable partner with the presence on the ground to sustain further expansion. The search for the partner that could effectively support us across all of these territories, and provide us with the necessary market exposure to continue our growth strategy and fulfil our targets, led us to EMD Music.”

The agreement covers Studiomaster’s range of analogue and innovative digital mixers and mixing consoles, entry level and mid-market self powered and passive PA and installation loudspeaker solutions, portable PA systems, and its range of Carlsbro CSD electronic drum kits. With the first shipments arriving in its 12,000 sqm warehousing facility imminently, the agreement significantly broadens EMD Music’s PA offering to European retailers.

"Studiomaster is a great British heritage brand with so much history the world of music entertainment. It is the perfect line that we have been looking for, to expand our business in the PA sector,” added Serge Alsteens, sales director, EMD Group.
