Harman Pro ending business relationship with AV Technology
Harman Pro is terminating its business relationship with AV Technology (avt) including all Pro Audio and AMX Control products as of 2 February 2020. The news came during the Christmas break and the 30-day notice period was given 2 January 2020.
“Naturally we are extremely disappointed to be losing the Harman Pro Audio products after just a few short years, but we are completely lost for words in losing the AMX range,” an avt spokesperson writes in an announcement.
“As you all well know, we have been successfully distributing AMX products for over 30 years, building an incredibly successful business and reputation. We have significantly grown the AMX business, and more recently the Audio business, in what has been a very competitive and challenging local market.”
The company expects a number of changes in the coming weeks and the sales and management team will reach out to all customers in various ways to outline a path forward for avt and all those associated.
“We would like to acknowledge the team at Harman for many years of shared success. Everyone at avt will continue to work closely with the Harman team to facilitate a mutually satisfactory transition that ensures minimal disruption with our customers over this very short period,” the announcement says.
“For those of you venturing to ISE in Amsterdam in early February we look forward to seeing you on our continuing partner stands. However, and more importantly, we look forward to announcing very shortly a series of roadshows launching a number of new initiatives with our partners.
“We thank you for all your fantastic support over the years and we all look forward to further strengthening our relationships during 2020 and beyond.”
