This acquisition “significantly increases Solotech’s systems integration and live productions presence in the U.S. market,” the joint announcement says.
“Pro Sound Inc. and its divisions have an incredibly strong reputation in the North American marketplace,” said Tremblay in the joint announcement. “Under the leadership of CEO Rod Sintow, the company has been trusted to work in some of the most renowned venues throughout the United States.
“Rod and his team share our unwavering dedication to quality work, innovative solutions and best industry operational practices. The Pro Sound & Video, SEAL and Show Systems brands will be strong additions to the Solotech family, perfectly complementing our corporate goals and propelling our systems integration capabilities as well as our footprint in the United States,” he said in the joint announcement.
Pro Sound & Video, Stage Equipment and Lighting and Show Systems will each continue to operate under their current names, with the upcoming unified branding of A Solotech Company.
Why Solotech Wanted Pro Sound
Sintow will continue his role as CEO of Pro Sound, Inc. and will work closely with Philip Giffard, president of the sales and systems integration division at Solotech, and Mickey Curbishley, president of live productions in the U.S. and U.K., as part of the Solotech management team.
“Solotech has an undeniable global leadership position in systems integration and live productions in the marketplace, and this acquisition gives our customers access to fully integrated solutions while allowing us to expand our service and support for our clients,” said Sintow in the joint announcement. We are delighted to join forces with them.
“We like to start with the client’s vision and have our team develop that vision into reality. The combination of our companies and our expert teams will answer all the needs of our clients and help us to really exceed their expectations,” he said in the announcement.
“Pro Sound’s reputation speaks for itself as does its impressive list of clients in theme parks, broadcast facilities and sporting venues,” said Giffard in the joint announcement. “By acquiring Pro Sound, we will be able to offer more North American customers access to our sales and systems integration solutions, customized to their needs.
“With the combining of our two service-oriented companies, Solotech is responding to clients’ desires to have a single source solution with knowledgeable experts across market sectors,” he said in the announcement.
