APG, the French manufacturer or high end professional loudspeakers and inventor of the modular line array, is pleased to announce that it has hired two new Engineers, thus reinforcing its core business. The announcement is in line with the objectives set by the company when it joined forces with Active Audio in April 2016.

The company’s R&D department welcomes Charlotte Gegout. Charlotte brings ten years of experience as a Sound Technician in the entertainment industry, before she completed her degree at the prominent Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (CNAM) and graduated as an Acoustical Engineer. The CNAM has been training some of the best French engineers since 1925. Since joining APG in June, Charlotte has taken on a research project on the development of new technologies in acoustic loads.

APG’s sales department has also expanded with the addition of Maxence Castelain, the company’s new client support engineer. Maxence graduated as an engineer in 2015, and has already spent a year at APG in the R&D department to work on the development of the critically acclaimed new Uniline Compact range before her position was made permanent.

With a solid background as a freelance sound engineer working for various rental stagers in North of France and Belgium for several years, Maxence is perfectly equipped to understand the needs of the APG partner network. His role will be to answer any technical and business query in France and on an international level, providing consultancy, demos, acoustical studies, product training and system start-up on site.

Commenting on the new recruits, APG’s Marketing and Business Development Director Grégory Dapsanse commented: “We are delighted to welcome two great prospects like Charlotte and Maxence, who are a perfect fit to APG’s ethos. It’s a very logical step for us to start our mutation with people that are driven by passion and knowledge. They both represent our commitment to the industry, to offer superior technologies and high level technical support.”
