Harman’s Acquisition of AMX is Complete

Harman’s President Blake Augsburger announces the acquisition of AMX during InfoComm14.

Harman’s recent acquisition of AMX, a manufacturer of audio/visual control devices, is now complete, the companies announced Wednesday morning during a press conference at the AMX booth #C4908.

 

“This gives us a bigger share in the install markets and an entry in to video,” commented Blake Augsburger, President, Harman. “Many Harman integrators already sell and install AMX products, and this give us an opportunity to expand into emerging markets and cross sell in vertical markets.”

 

AMX will remain at its headquarters in Dallas. Rashid Skaf, president and CEO of AMX, said the acquisition will make AMX stronger and allow the company to expand farther.

 

“We’re very excited to realize this vision for our customers,” Skaf said.

 

Harman, a predominantly pro audio company, represents other brands including Soundcraft, JBL, AKG, Lexicon and more. Back in late 2012, Harman acquired Denmark-based company Martin Lighting, introducing the brand to other markets. The recent acquisition of AMX continues this commitment to integrating and collaborating Harman brands to other markets.

 

“Bringing together audio, video and lighting could be radical,” said Augsburger.
