Delta Sound (deltasound.co.uk) has acquired Sound by Design, providing SR customers — sound, lighting and staging — with an expanded equipment set from which to spec, including DiGiCo consoles, L-Acoustics and d&b cabinets, and Meyer Sound and EM Acoustics gear. Both companies will operate from Delta’s headquarters near Hampton Court in Surrey, England, effective October 1.
“Paul [Keating, Delta managing director] and I have been talking about this for about 15 months now, since we met at a party in Dubai that neither of us was invited to,” says Andy Callin, managing director of SBD. “We’d already come to the conclusion that it was what we wanted to do before the market started to contract in some areas.”
Adds Keating, “Diversification is key at the moment, and we’re all looking forward to being able to offer our clients so much more than we could before.”
