Sound Technology has been acquired by Midwich Group, but will continue to operate as an independent company, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the firm.

The board of key personnel at Sound Technology will remain with David Marshall as managing director, Judi Kingston as finance director, Greg Niven as sales director and Ian Cullen as marketing director. 
Sound Technology will continue to operate from its Letchworth Garden City offices, with no changes to its workforce or market approach.

Midwich is a specialist AV, professional video, broadcast, lighting and document distributor with offices throughout Europe and Australasia.
 
Stephen Fenby, Midwich’s managing director, said: “We have watched the success of Sound Technology over recent years and are delighted to have persuaded Bob, David and the team to join our Group.  The acquisition of Sound Technology substantially enhances the Group’s ability to provide world leading products and high value add audio solutions to our trade customers. In addition, I believe that the high level of support Sound Technology provides to its vendors is very close to our proven strategy as a specialist distributor.  The Company’s recent entry into the professional lighting market is an exciting proposition and complements our current offering in in the Benelux and Iberia.  I look forward to welcoming the Sound Technology team into the Midwich Group, and working with them to further develop this market place“.
 
David Marshall, MD of Sound Technology added: “At a time when our company is going through tremendous growth in our original MI and pro audio markets, and of course through our new professional lighting division, we are delighted to be joining the Midwich Group. Having the financial resource for sustained expansion, together with access to a wealth of shared expertise, provides a structure for Sound Technology to continue to develop markets for our represented brands, and to enhance the service and support provided to our customers.”
