Nashville-based Trew Audio, a major presence in the film and video production sound industry, announces that it has purchased Coffey Sound LLC in Los Angeles, which adds to Trew Audio’s locations in Nashville, Toronto, and Vancouver.
“While considering different options of expanding into Los Angeles, it became clear that acquiring Coffey Sound would create the ideal combination," says Glen Trew, owner of Trew Audio. "Trew Audio’s forte of serving customers ‘between the coasts’ and Coffey Sound’s expertise of serving Hollywood from their well-known location on Cahuenga Boulevard with their large sales and rental operation, create a formidable combined support base to better serve our customers everywhere.”
As part of this transaction, key Coffey Sound personnel from its Hollywood-based operations will remain the same. Former Coffey Sound President John Coffey becomes the Trew Audio Vice President of Business Development, while Fabi Allen is now the Branch and Sales Manager.
The transition of Coffey Sound into the centrally managed Trew Audio operation, including common Web presence, e-commerce, accounting, and so on, will take place seamlessly. Coffey Sound will continue its educational seminars, new product launches, Sound & Picture magazine, and emphasis on friendly helpful service.
Trew Audio states that will continue its shared vision with Coffey Sound, to earn business by adding value for its professional customer base with educational and experienced support, with an understanding of what it’s like to be in the customer’s position during production.
