Leading microphone brand JTS Professional is to be represented in the UK and Ireland by FBT Audio UK, following the signing of an exclusive distribution agreement between the two companies. Effective as of July 1st 2015, the appointment will see the JTS Professional brand pushed to new heights as FBT Audio UK establishes an exclusive dealer network numbering more than 50 retail outlets, alongside the selection of preferred install and rental partners.
“JTS has always manufactured extremely high quality wireless and wired microphone products, hence the brand’s ongoing popularity within the UK – one of the world’s most discerning markets” commented FBT Audio UK Managing Director, Mark Parkhouse. “But with the next generation JTS wireless products that are now appearing, for example the UF-20 series and the forthcoming installation ranges, the time has now come to push JTS Professional to the next level.”
The appointment marks the latest highlight in a 20 year friendship between Mr Parkhouse and the JTS Professional brand, which he helped to originally launch into the UK market in the mid-1990s. JTS is also the first partner brand to be added to the portfolio of FBT Audio UK, which launched in January 2012, exclusively representing the high-end Italian manufacturer FBT Elettronica S.p.A. The union of FBT’s leading Italian-made loudspeakers with JTS Professional’s cutting-edge microphone technology is sure to prove a powerful combination. “Like FBT, JTS products provide serious musicians and installers with extremely high quality at very affordable prices,” explained Mr Parkhouse.
The appointment has also been given a warm welcome by JTS Professional Vice General Manager, Dowson Yu, who described himself as “delighted to work with Mark again in the UK. I have known Mark for more than 20 years as a trusted business partner and also a friend. Mark has already contributed a lot in building the JTS Professional brand within the UK, especially in the earlier years. He is ambitious and hands-on with very innovative marketing ideas. I am confident that JTS Professional will benefit greatly from its new association with FBT Audio UK.”
Plans are already underway to exhibit the JTS Professional range at upcoming trade events including BPM/PRO, Plasa London and the regional Plasa focus shows. FBT Audio UK is also intending to take both FBT and JTS on an education-focused tour of the UK in 2016.
