HHB directors, customers, staff and friends gather to celebrate the company’s 30th anniversary.
HHB Communications is celebrating 30 years in business in 2006. The occasion was marked with a party at the Belvedere in London’s Holland Park on June 24 at which staff, customers, suppliers and friends from the U.S., Canada, India, Thailand and Europe gathered.
“We’ve always tried to run a quality business and be a source of advice and support to our customers,” comments HHB’s founder and managing director, Ian Jones. “We’re proud of the role the company has played in pioneering digital audio technology, and of our continued innovation with groundbreaking products like our own HHB FlashMic, the world’s first digital recording microphone.”
Today, HHB is active as a re-seller, supplying products from more than 150 leading manufacturers. As a UK distributor HHB represents such brands as Røde, Eventide, PreSonus and Lynx. As a manufacturer HHB produces such award-winning products as the PortaDrive Location Sound Recorder, the FlashMic and a range of professional recording media.
HHB serves major broadcasters, recording facilities, artists and educational institutions and publishes an annual 164-page product catalog. Most recently HHB increased its commitment to the post-production sector by opening a special division, Scrub, in New York City’s Soho film and television community.
“Thirty years is a significant milestone,” says Jones. “The company continues to go from strength to strength and, with the hard work of our staff and the continued support of our customers and suppliers, HHB has grown to become one of the most successful professional audio businesses in the UK. On behalf of my fellow directors, I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to that success, and look forward to the next 30 years in the industry we all enjoy so much.”
