Leading pro audio provider, The Warehouse Sound Services, has been named the UK dealer for world-class loudspeaker brand Adamson Systems Engineering. As one of the largest suppliers of pro-audio equipment in Scotland and North of England, The Warehouse has opened a third branch in Lancashire to support their new Adamson partnership. The Warehouse currently has offices in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
To further establish Adamson in the UK, The Warehouse has also employed former Bose National Sales Manager Craig Buckley as a dedicated Brand and Division Manager alongside Paul Atherton who becomes Business Development Manager. Craig and Paul will head up the new Lancashire office in Chorley.
“We are very excited to start working with Adamson,” explains Derek Blair, Director of The Warehouse. “The product line is very impressive – everyone who has worked on their PA has nothing but great things to say about the sound quality and technology. This fits nicely into our expansion plans and is the perfect opportunity to provide our existing and future clients the best products available.”
The Warehouse, headquartered in Edinburgh, has been providing the highest quality audio components to the industry since 1980. Having supplied audio equipment to Muse, Paramount Pictures, the BBC and the Edinburgh International Festival, the company enjoys a tremendous reputation across the UK. The company also has a royal warrant – as a sound equipment provider to HM The Queen.
“This is an excellent opportunity for both companies,” adds Jasper Ravesteijn, European sales manager for Adamson.“The Warehouse is highly regarded in the industry. To add them as a dealer for our products is a feather in our cap. I am looking forward to working with them and seeing them continue to grow the Adamson brand in the UK.”
Adamson Systems Engineering provide the most innovative and technologically advanced professional loud speakers in the world; manufactured to exacting specifications with the highest quality control standards. Adamson has supplied fixed installations for some of the most renowned venues in the world including the Ushuaia Club in Ibiza, Amsterdam’s Paradiso, Palais des Festivals, home to the Cannes Film Festival, Canada’s Rialto Theatre and international festivals including Canada’s Riot Fest and the Rock Werchter festival in Belgium.
International touring artists including One Direction, Ray La Montagne, Pharrell Williams, Ellie Goulding, Paul McCartney, Daft Punk, Eagles of Death Metal, Imagine Dragons and Lady Gaga have also used Adamson products at venues and festivals across the globe.
Janet Murray, Director of The Warehouse commented: “Adamson is a long established high end loudspeaker brand that is appearing on many international artist technical riders, it’s gaining very wide acclaim in American and mainland Europe amongst all sizes of rental companies and installations. In particular, the E15, E12 and S10 line array loudspeaker systems offer a range of features that in our opinion are more advanced than the competition.”
The loudspeaker market has seen a rapid shift in focus towards sound quality and intelligibility over the last 5-10 years, driven both by end-user demand and the introduction of new technologies. The Warehouse has introduced the Adamson brand in order to stay at the forefront of the loudspeaker market and to meet ever-growing customer demand.
Janet Murray added: “The live industry is moving forward at pace and it is critical that, as sound professionals, we implement the most advanced systems possible. Adamson is a world-leader in the loudspeaker field and we are thrilled to be their UK sales partner.”
To further establish Adamson in the UK, The Warehouse has employed Craig Buckley as a dedicated Brand and Division Manager. Craig previously worked for 10 years as national sales manager BOSE before becoming Managing Director of RW Salt Communications. Craig is joined by former RW Salt colleague Paul Atherton who becomes Business Development Manager.
Craig Buckley commented: “Adamson is a world leader in the loudspeaker market. The company develops and manufactures a complete line of superior, advanced technology loudspeaker products for the professional touring and installation market. Continued success in bringing significant, cutting edge technology to the end-user has equated the Adamson brand name around the world with excellence and distinction. I’m so excited to be representing such a globally respected brand in the UK!”
