QSC EMEA has opened a new office in Wattens to distribute the QSC Live Sound and Systems product portfolio in Austria. This change will allow QSC to foster closer relationships to all Austrian customers, providing extensive training, pre- and after-sales as well as both technical, repair and marketing support.

In his role as Director, Gerd Kostial will oversee the Austrian QSC office as well as manage direct sales to key system integrators.
