FBT signs Audio Brands Australia as new distributor

Published: ASIA

AUSTRALIA: New Sydney-based audio distributor, Audio Brands Australia has been appointed as the exclusive Australian distributor for Italian-based audio equipment manufacturer FBT.

‘Audio Brands is very pleased to be representing FBT in Australia,’ said Don McConnell, Audio Brands Australia manager. ‘FBT is already well known for their range of moulded speakers and we are looking forward to introducing their latest ranges of self-powered products as well as their extensive range of installation speakers.’

‘We are delighted to have Audio Brands Australia as our new distributor,’ added Roberto Mataloni, export manager for FBT. ‘We knew that Don was well known and respected in the Australian audio market, so we jumped at the chance to work with him and his new company. We are looking forward to a long and mutually rewarding partnership between our two companies.’

Following a recent visit to the FBT headquarters in Recanati, Italy, Mr McConnell commented: ‘The FBT facility is very impressive, as are the people behind the company and its products. Most of their speakers are built entirely in-house using predominantly European components, including B&C drivers in many of their products. Their design techniques, build quality and testing processes are amongst the best I have ever seen.’

The FBT installation range will be a key initial focus for Audio Brands, including the Project series, the Shadow series of IP rated outdoor speakers as well as the MLA and DLA digitally steered column speakers and the self-powered Mitus and Vertus line arrays. ‘We are very much looking forward to introducing these great products to our customers,’ added Mr McConnell.

‘I have been in the audio industry all of my working life and I am still very passionate about the market and the people working in it,’ said Mr McConnell. ‘The timing is right to break out on my own and I’m pleased to be able to do it representing such a great catalogue of products.’

Audio Brands is also offering a range of power amplifiers, self-powered speakers, stands, cables and general audio accessories under the Kempton brand, and further brands will be introduced over the coming months.
