|UK professional loudspeaker company, EM Acoustics, announced the appointment of Tom Lee Engineering in Hong Kong as their exclusive distributor for Hong Kong, mainland China and Macau at Prolight+Sound 2011, Shanghai.
The deal was formalized after nearly two years of discussion with TLM and extensive product testing. EM Acoustics’ international sales manager, Alex Schloesser, is pleased to see that the negotiations have now borne fruit and that TLE have taken delivery of a significant EM Acoustics inventory including six X3 high-Q array enclosures plus flying gear and twelve MSE-118 Quake subs as well as a selection of smaller products.
“I regard TLE’s decision to come on board as a positive affirmation of where EM Acoustics stands today,” stated Schloesser. “That is to say we now have a very complete portfolio that includes products for every application from monitoring, fills and delays right up to arena-sized P.A. systems. Indeed, the fact that our massive Quake subwoofer systems can now be complemented with the X3 high-Q horizontal array system launched at Frankfurt this year marked a significant step forward for us, and was doubtless the element that convinced TLE that we could be partners.”
“Tom Lee Engineering is a major player in the Asian market and the fact that we can work together means a lot to me,” continued Schloesser. “We look forward to a long and prosperous relationship for both parties and I will support Tom Lee Engineering in every way I can in the quest to grow EM Acoustics in China, Hong Kong and Macau.”
CEO of TLE, John Lee, is also pleased that the agreement has been made official. “Good things are always worth taking your time over,” he remarked. “We take our business arrangements very seriously and we won’t take on a line until we are sure that both parties will benefit from the arrangement. I’m pleased to say that we have reached that point with EM Acoustics who now offer an excellent range of products. Ed Kinsella is a perfectionist and a very good designer. The results show in the sound quality produced by EM Acoustics loudspeakers. We are honoured to represent them in China and look forward to doing good business together.”
