Yorkville Sound has begun a campaign to relocate the manufacturing of its products back to its native soil. The company is moving the production of most of the active and passive loudspeakers in its YX Series back to the Canadian manufacturing facility in Pickering Ontario from factories in Asia.
Vice president Jeff Cowling, said: “We’re very happy to re-shore this popular and cost-effective PA series for a variety of reasons. It keeps our North American facility busy, it provides us with an improved time-to-market factor, and gives us more control over quality and performance.
“The YX series is still a budget oriented series, but the sound and build quality we can provide is extraordinary,” adds Cowling.
Yorkville made the announcement just after the NAMM show in January, where the company presented additions to its ParaSource Active loudspeaker range. Jeff Shorthouse, Yorkville product development, is pictured with PS15P and PS12P portable speakers at the show.
Yorkville has also confirmed its plans to seek out and engage with more distribution partners in Europe and beyond in 2014. The company celebrated its 50th anniversary last year and currently employs over 250 staff at its HQ in a suburb of Toronto.
