Biamp Announces Acquisition of Community Loudspeakers and Apart Audio

Biamp have announced the acquisition of Audioprof Group International, parent company of Community Loudspeakers based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Apart Audio based in Antwerp, Belgium from 3d Investors of Gent, Belgium.

Founded in 1968 by speaker design pioneer Bruce Howze, Community Loudspeakers has a long history of speaker design firsts. Today, Community Loudspeakers is a well-established and respected manufacturer of a broad range of premium speakers targeting demanding indoor and outdoor applications including commercial, leisure, stadiums, and other large venues.

Most recently at InfoComm 2019, Community Loudspeakers introduced the new L SERIES LVH-900 Beamforming Venue Horn, continuing its tradition of innovation.

Apart Audio is a strong competitor in full signal path, commercial and leisure audio solutions for small and mid-size venues including retail, food service, education, and small offices. It offers a broad array of speakers as well as amplifiers, mixers, controllers, and paging stations to make Apart Audio a single vendor solution for these markets.

Apart has a well-established business in Europe and just entered North America in 2018, a market in which Biamp’s extensive distribution system can provide an immediate boost.

In Australia, Biamp is distributed by Jands, while Community is handled by Hills, and Apart Audio by Amber Technology.

As is usually the case with acquisitions of this nature there are no distribution changes slated for the near future, with Amber indicating that “While Biamp evaluate the local market following the acquisition of Apart Audio, nothing has changed in the day-to-day operations of Apart in Australia and New Zealand,” with similar sentiments voiced at both Hills and Jands.
