Vitec Will Acquire Audix

Oregon facility will become an “Audio R&D Centre of Excellence”

Vitec Imaging Solutions, part of U.K.-based The Vitec Group, will acquire U.S. mic maker Audix.

Audix makes mics for studio and live performance audio. “As part of the Vitec family, the Audix team and facility in Oregon will become Vitec Imaging Solutions’ Audio R&D Centre of Excellence, enabling the acceleration of in-house microphone product design, development and manufacturing across all Vitec audio brands,” Vitec announced, saying the acquisition should close soon.

“With the acquisition of Audix, Vitec’s audio capture strategy is now structured around three core brands that cover all growth segments of the $1 billion microphone market.” Those brands are Audix, Rycote and JOBY.

Audix will open its manufacturing facility to the rest of Vitec’s audio brands.

Vitec employs around 2,000 people in 11 countries; it is listed on the London Stock Exchange.
