Leon Speakers acquires Terra Speakers
Leon Speakers has announced that they have acquired Maine-based manufacturer of rugged, all-weather loudspeakers, Terra Speakers.
Terra’s All Climate FIVE line of all-weather loudspeakers was designed in partnership with Kaplan, and Leon’s Boundary Series outdoor speakers are made with drivers manufactured by Terra at its Maine plant.
“We’ve been collaborating with Terra for years now and over that time we’ve found that our companies share a lot of the same core values and the common vision of creating high-performance, design-driven audio products that are made right here in America” says Leon president Noah Kaplan.
“We’re both passionate about art, music, design, and craftsmanship, and Terra’s strong expertise in the outdoor market will be a huge asset to our company.”
The acquisition will bring a host of new products to Leon’s current residential and commercial product lines, especially to their outdoor audio offerings. Terra is known in the industry for creating durable speakers that are built to thrive in rugged weather conditions, and their current product line will help to build out Leon’s Boundary Series of outdoor speakers.
“The merger just made sense for us and for Leon,” says Terra president James Banfield.
“We are especially excited, as it brings Terra to a larger base of customers, reps, and dealers. And it will mean that our collective products can continue to grow, while continuing to keep our operations here in the country. Both companies are able to assure quality because we make our products from start to finish right in house.”
“We have both been building handcrafted custom audio products for over two decades so we speak the same language, we face the same challenges, and above all we love what we do. We are ready to evolve together to meet the needs of the ever-changing landscape of custom audio and design,” says Noah.
