Shure Incorporated announced the purchase of its longtime UK distribution center, HW International, from Wilton Investments. The new Shure subsidiary will keep all current employees, as well as the distribution of its other existing product lines, including Phonic, QSC and PreSonus. Dennis Harburn will continue as managing director at HW.
"The purchase of HW International provides an opportunity for Shure to have more direct contact with its customer base in the UK, one of Europe's largest markets," said Mike McGinn, Shure's executive VP of global marketing and sales. "This supports our plan to further develop the brand there."
Markus Winkler, managing director of Shure Europe, said, "From the standpoint of our UK customers, the change in ownership of HW will be transparent, as we will continue to utilize the excellent staff that HW has assembled, adn continue to carry the same product lines."
