FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MC2 AUDIO LTD. EXPANDS PRODUCTION FACILITY
— Company announces additional manufacturing capabilities to
meet growing demand for its power amplifiers in the fixed installation
and touring sound markets —
119th AES CONVENTION, NEW YORK, NY, October 7, 2005 —
Following a year of dramatic growth due in part to the success of its
E Series power amplifiers, leading UK-based amplifier manufacturer MC2
Audio Ltd. has increased the size of its production facility in Honiton,
Devon. The factory expansion further underscores MC2 Audio’s ongoing
commitment to providing high quality, high performance solutions to
the fixed installation and touring sound markets.
“MC2 has grown steadily since its inception 10 years
ago, but the last year has seen the company grow at an exceptional rate.
This is in no small part due to the new E Series, and in particular
the E45 lightweight touring amplifier,” explains Managing Director
The company has now taken possession of additional space
adjacent to its existing factory and is currently in the process of
refurbishing and streamlining the production line to increase capability.
Current production levels will continue as normal during this construction
period and it is anticipated that by the New Year MC2 will have increased
its production capability by 50%, and by 100% within the next 12 months.
Ian McCarthy continues, “We will also be recruiting
additional staff both in production and administration and are looking
forward to another successful year.”
