TSL splits company to cover systems integration and manufacturing sectors
WORLD: TSL has reorganised its operating divisions so that it now comprises two separate businesses. TSL (Television Systems Limited) is a systems integration company for the broadcast industry, whilst TSL Professional Products Ltd is a manufacturer of audio monitoring, tally systems and power management solutions.
In line with the announcement, David MacGregor, TSL's chairman and co-founder of both companies will take a 'back seat' in terms of day-to-day operations and will transfer to become chairman of Television Systems Holdings Ltd. Meanwhile Martin Dyster and Terry Boon have been appointed as directors for TSL Professional Products Ltd, and will report directly to MD Chris Exelby.
‘I am incredibly proud of how TSL Systems and TSL Professional Products have developed into the independent and highly successful businesses they are today,’ said Mr MacGregor. ‘The confidence I have in the newly formed management teams is immense and I'm very happy to be stepping back on a high note, with both businesses achieving record turnover in the last financial year.’
As of now, all operational procedures as well as individual responsibility for profit and loss are separately managed.
In an additional announcement, TSL Professional Products Ltd and DK-Technologies have entered into a strategic technology partnership that will see TSL offer unique product solutions for a variety of markets, beginning with the broadcast industry.
‘TSL is delighted to be collaborating with DK-Technologies, as DK has demonstrated true innovation and reliability when it comes to bringing new audio test and measurement products to the market,’ said Mr Exelby. ‘With our combined knowledge, we’re looking to develop some exciting new ways of managing audio across the broadcast chain that will streamline present production needs while anticipating future trends. We are thoroughly energised to begin working with DK to bring our collective mission to fruition.’
‘As market leaders in the field of audio and video metering, DK-Technologies brings a wealth of practical and technical expertise to this very exciting partnership,’ said Andy Page, UK director of DK-Technologies. ‘TSL has a formidable reputation in the audio monitoring space and we are delighted to be sharing ideas with them. By combining our knowledge and resources, we are confident that we can provide more efficient workflows to not only broadcast, but to theatre, music productions and A/V installations.’
