D&M Holdings announced completion of its acquisition of Allen & Heath Holdings.
Pro Sound News reported the completion of the deal. A&H is a designer and manufacturer of audio mixing consoles for pro sound engineers, live sound installations and DJs. D&M is the parent of Denon Professional, Marantz Professional and Denon DJ.
“The acquisition of Allen & Heath is a strong complement to our Calrec and D&M Pro brands,” it quoted Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Eric C. Evans saying. “This acquisition broadens our product offerings to our longstanding DJ customer base and expands our business in the professional market into installed live sound.”
A&H was founded in 1969; it operates from a manufacturing facility in Cornwall, England, and has more than 150 employees. It will continue to be led by Glenn Rogers and its current management team, D&M said.
“We’re adding another dimension to our position in the professional audio marketplace with this acquisition,” said Evans. “Allen & Heath is a strong brand in the professional live sound performance market and well suited to benefit from the D&M business platform. Like our other premium brands, Allen & Heath can continue to focus on innovation while D&M provides expanded global market reach and other support. We also see useful tie-ins with Calrec, our live-to-air broadcast console brand, and Denon DJ.”
