Biamp Announces Direct to Market Distribution in the United Kingdom and Ireland | #TpromoCom #Biamp #Financial #Business |  Biamp, a leading supplier of professional audiovisual solutions based in Beaverton, Oregon, USA, today announced the implementation of a dealer-direct model in the United Kingdom and Ireland, which will enhance the company’s ability to support customers and drive growth.

Following the recent opening of the company’s new European headquarters in Antwerp, Belgium, and UK sales office in London, Biamp is now transitioning to dealer-direct model to strengthen the company’s sales, support, and product distribution in the region. In addition to some direct accounts, Biamp will be working with Midwich, Leisuretech, and Professional Audio in Northern Ireland—in all cases, served by Biamp’s sales and support staff. This enables the company to more aggressively pursue opportunities in all target vertical markets: corporate, food service and hospitality, retail, large venues, education, religion, sports and leisure, and outdoor applications.

“With the UK being one of the biggest and most important markets in Europe, we are confident that our decision to go direct will allow us to serve our partners more effectively. Bringing on board an experienced UK sales force coupled with an expanded pre- and post-sales support team will allow us to engage dealers more fully in the UK and Ireland markets. This, in combination with our consultant support and vertical business development group, will ensure that we achieve our ambitious growth plans for the region. We are convinced this is the best way to promote beneficial synergies between Biamp DSP products, microphones, loudspeakers, amplifiers and complementary electronics,” comments Kris Vermuyten, General Manager, Biamp Europe.

AtlasIED makes face masks free to (image)

AtlasIED Manufactures and Donates 26,000 PPE Face Shields Across the U.S. | #TpromoCom #COVID19 #FirstResponder #Audio | AtlasIED is doing its part to protect the well-being of medical personnel by manufacturing and distributing thousands of units of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) Face Shields free of charge to hospitals, triage centers, nursing homes, and other medical facilities nationwide, as well as local emergency responders, fire departments and police departments.

Nearly 1,200 orders have been filled since assembly and distribution of the personal protection equipment began on April 10 at AtlasIED’s Ennis, Texas, manufacturing facility. Support will be ongoing, as AtlasIED has enough material to produce as many as 26,000 shields.

The manufacture and distribution of the face shields was a huge undertaking that involved the modification of AtlasIED’s existing assembly line, sourcing of materials, programming of a laser cutting machine, reallocation of bandwidth and employees, implementing a dust-free environment to keep the shields clean, and developing an online request form.

“In these uncertain times, AtlasIED felt it necessary to do what it could to ensure the safety of the nation’s healthcare workers,” says AtlasIED President John Ivey. “Through the commitment of our employees, we were able to execute timely development and distribution of face shields to medical facilities throughout the country. At the same time, we are able to keep everyone at the manufacturing facility fully employed.”
