Microphone specialist Shure, has opened three new offices across Europe, including a new Russian offshoot and added a new Norwegian audio distributor.

The firm opened an office in Dubai last year to marshall the Middle East and Africa region and has now added to its European office network with market development centres in Switzerland and Austria, while also establishing a regional office in Moscow – Shure REE.

Herbert Muff will head Shure’s market development office in Switzerland, while Gerd Kostial will run Austria. Angelika Oernfelt will take charge of the Moscow office. All will report to Ron Marchant, general manager of EMEA sales, based at Shure EMEA’s headquarters in Eppingen, Germany (pictured).

Markus Winkler, managing director of Shure EMEA, commented: “Establishing offices in these countries will complement the efforts of our local distributors. Through a close and ongoing collaboration, we will offer additional levels of support to professional customers. In addition, our collective efforts will drive greater brand awareness of Shure’s integrated systems portfolio among international organisations and global corporate customers based in these countries. We are excited about the possibilities this brings and the potential to further develop our strong position in those countries.”

Earlier this month the firm replaced Scandec Systemer with Siv. Ing. Benum as the exclusive distributor for the DIS audio brand in Norway. The deal covers the entire DIS range of conferencing and interpretation systems.

“Siv. Ing. Benum AS is a longtime Shure distributor with an excellent reputation in the audio industry serving all three vertical markets – MI retail, pro audio and installed.”, said Ron Marchant. “To add the DIS line is a logical consequence to pool our strengths in the Norwegian market.” 

“Being the exclusive Shure distributor for Norway for many years, we are now very excited to add the renowned DIS brand to our portfolio.”, added Nina Benum, Managing Director at Siv. Ing. Benum AS. “This new addition gives us the opportunity to offer a holistic range of excellent audio solutions dedicated to our three target markets.”
