The company officially opened its ProSound division training and demonstration room in Peterborough, UK, on 25 September. Pro-audio media, dealers and special guests including Peterborough

Mayor George Simons were in attendance for the ribbon- cutting ceremony and the ensuing celebrations. “The objective of having this facility is to support our customer base – that’s key,” said ProSound UK’s sales director Sean Maxwell. “It’s about making sure that the facility is available for them to come to, and bring their customers to. We’re all about supporting the customers; we have to be, and we are.”

Shortly after the opening

celebrations, Prague-based Audiopro was appointed as an Electro-Voice and Dynacord distributor for the Czech Republic. Founded in 2002, Audiopro has provided sound systems and audio solutions for O2 Arena, the new stadium of Slavia Prague, the National Theater (all in Prague), as well as various installations across the Czech Republic. “Electro-Voice and Dynacord

have always had a great reputation in our country, with products already being delivered before the Velvet Revolution. The opportunity to add these brands to our portfolio is another important milestone in the history of our company,” said Audiopro CEO Andrej Hronec.
