Broadcast equipment manufacturer BW Broadcast has shut down, at least temporarily, after the death of its co-founder Scott Incz, according to BW’s U.S. distributor SCMS.

The manufacturer’s other co-founder, Roger Howe, died last year.

SCMS President Bob Cauthen said he was notified last week by BW Broadcast that Incz had died but that he had no further details.

Cauthen said he expects BW “will be reopened at some point under a new ownership.”

“As the U.S. distributor, we will continue to provide service and parts to our U.S. customers as well as offer service at our North Carolina corporate facility and provide parts as they are available,” Cauthen said. “We have a significant stock of finished product and parts to accomplish this. Additionally, we will be able to work closely with several BW employees for worldwide service support.”

BW Broadcast makes transmitters, audio processors, monitors and other equipment. It was founded by Roger Howe and Scott Incz in 1997. Howe died in early 2020.

“Scott was a valued business partner for many years,” said Matt Cauthen, vice president of SCMS, “and more importantly, a friend. He will be missed.”
