Biamp Acquires Creative Audio
Biamp Systems announced the acquisition of Creative Audio.
Biamp Systems announced the acquisition of Creative Audio, a manufacturer based in Brisbane QLD, Australia. The addition, according to Biamp president Ralph Lockhart, provides the company with access to an experienced engineering development team that will expand its audio engineering research and development capabilities.
"Creative Audio has proven to have a remarkable technical core with a keen understanding of contractor requirements and end-user needs," said Lockhart. "Biamp Systems shares this close connection to the market and places a high value on providing innovative approaches that create valuable solutions for our customers. I am confident that our engineering teams, though separated by many miles, will jointly raise the bar in turning out great new products."
Creative Audio has developed networked technologies for audio control and communications as well as advanced paging systems. The company's products are featured in worldwide installations such as the U.S. House of Representatives, the Sydney Opera House, Stadium Australia, and Heathrow Airport.
"Our goal in acquiring Creative Audio was to take two strong design groups and leverage the best of both to apply bright minds and fresh approaches to the development of new product options for our customers," explained Steve Metzger, Biamp Systems vice president of business development. "Both organizations share a passion for excellence, and this move allows Biamp to reach into new market opportunities with the same eye for creating forward-thinking solutions as we have with our current products."
