The publicly listed Philippos Nakas has been supplying musical instruments and professional audio equipment in Greece since 1937. Today, the Athens company distributes for manufacturers including Robe Lighting, Sennheiser, KLOTZ, and Neumann, in addition to Meyer Sound.
"We have been looking for a big name in loudspeakers for a long time now, and are very excited to add Meyer Sound to our offerings," says Konstantinos Nakas, managing director of Philippos Nakas. "The current economic state is driving a wave of new sound rental companies to the market and these companies are demanding quality equipment like Meyer Sound."
Philippos Nakas has established a strong sales distribution network with experience in the theatre, nightclub, and hotel markets, as well as AV integration in other tourist destinations. Education is highlighted as a priority for the company, which organises more than 200 concerts, masterclasses, and other cultural events every year through its music institution, Philippos Nakas Conservatory.
"Meyer Sound is a strong believer in transferring our experience and knowledge to audio practitioners on the field," says Scott Gledhill, international sales manager at Meyer Sound. "By working with Philippos Nakas, we hope to drive the sound quality in Greece's live events to the next level by providing both sophisticated audio solutions and high-level technical training and support."
