Dutch loudspeaker manufacturer Alcons Audio has formed Alcons Audio USA, which will be headed by David Rahn, most recently national sales manager at Renkus Heinz, and Pauline Ortiz y Pino, business development specialist, and will be based in Dana Point, Calif.
“Needless to say, the U.S. market is very important, to some even ‘the cradle of pro audio,’” says Alcons’ co-founder and managing director, Tom Back. “With new market developments such as 3-D and digital cinema, for which our Cinemarray™ cinema systems are ideal, and the forthcoming LR24 mid-sized line array with Sentinel amplified controllers for the live sound market, the timing for introducing our pro-ribbon solutions to the U.S. market is perfect! Since we started the company in 2002, we’ve had the philosophy of not entering the U.S. until we were able to establish our own office there and be able to provide the comprehensive support our customers deserve and have come to expect. Although we received many enquiries from the U.S., we have stuck to that principle.”
“As we maintain an organic development strategy within our company, getting the right person onboard was always going to be a matter of time,” Back continues. “With David and Pauline joining us, that time has come. We’re very happy that we can continue our global development into this pivotal market with this fantastic team.”
