Powermove Distribution new Australian distributor of KLH speakers
Originally founded in 1957 as KLH Research and Development Corporation by Henry Kloss, Malcolm S Low and Josef Anton Hofmann, KLH quickly grew to become the largest loudspeaker company in the world at the time, employing over 500 people and shipping over 30,000 speakers a year across six continents.
“When the opportunity to purchase the KLH brand was presented to me, I could not believe my good fortune. KLH is one of the most storied and revered audio brands in the world, founded by one of the most iconic engineers in the history of consumer electronics. I have taken the brand back to its roots, to Henry Floss’ original mission, to build world-class loudspeakers and radios at affordable prices. I am proud to be the new owner of KLH, and will honor Henry and his many contributions to the audio industry through the introduction of our extraordinary new KLH products,” says KLH chief executive and president David Kelley.
Powermove Distribution audio product manager Ross Kemp says the decision to take on the re-birth of such an iconic brand is an exciting prospect.
“It’s not the first time we’ve successfully marketed and distributed high-end speakers and KLH’s new leadership team.”
KLH and the Powermove team will be showing off the range at the Australian Hi-Fi & AV Show, which is being held in Melbourne on 19-21 October.
