Audio specialist Sennheiser has announced the acquisition of several business units of Professional Audio Ltd. (PAL) in Ireland. This step in the development of Sennheiser’s Irish operation follows a mutual agreement between Sennheiser GmbH & Co. KG and PAL, which, among others, sold Sennheiser products in Ireland.
Sennheiser already employs over 300 people at its manufacturing plant in Tullamore, where it produces headphones, headphone capsules, audiology products, studio monitors and products for the integrated systems sector.
Sennheiser chief executive Daniel Sennheiser commented: “Ireland is an important market for us and we want to make sure that our customers there continue to be well supported. Drawing business for this territory directly into our global operation means that we are able to offer the same level of service that we offer everywhere else in the world. At the same time, keeping key members of the existing team provides both consistency and familiarity.”
PAL’s Gerry Forde added: “PAL has worked with Sennheiser in Ireland for more than 25 years and we have enjoyed building the Sennheiser brand during this time. This latest development is a testament to Sennheiser’s vision and commitment to Ireland.”
