New China manufacturing facility unveiled by Precision Devices
Precision Devices, renowned UK-based manufacturer of high-end loudspeaker components, proudly announces the opening of its China manufacturing operation with products designed and engineered exclusively for the China professional audio market.
In a historic decision, Precision Devices have for the first time expanded their manufacturing operations outside their core facility located in West Yorkshire, England.
PD Managing Director, Mark Barnes, says “We identified that China is perhaps the world’s largest single market for quality loudspeakers; importantly the China market has a number of specific product requirements in terms of performance and tonality that demands loudspeakers beyond the range of product that we manufacture in England which enjoy iconic status in the China audio market".
“For that reason we took the decision to open a manufacturing facility in China; the first time in PD’s history that we have manufactured outside our headquarters. We are investing heavily to expand our capacity to build loudspeakers that can better cater for the local needs of our customers here in China."
“We are Precision Devices, so we build to Precision Devices standards and the transducers we manufacture in China will be of the same exacting quality standards as those we make in our UK facility."
“PD products manufactured in our new facility will only be available to the China market and underlines our commitment to developing our business in China and the importance of our international partnerships with OEMs in that country”. Mark Barnes continues “Precision Devices is also engaged in an ambitious programme of new product development in the UK in 2014 comprising innovative product design which will reinforce the company’s progression during the year ahead. Expect to see many exciting new developments from PD UK through 2014 and into 2015.”
PD Sales Director, Neil Barnes, says “Our Precision Devices International line are all new designs for the China market; nothing will copy or duplicate the core catalogue range of PD product which will continue to be proudly ‘Made in England’. The International line are designed and engineered by our design team, headed by Technical Director Mark Oldroyd, and feature wholly PD designs and carefully-selected materials of construction cleverly combined for the China market taste with the authentic PD standards of outstanding performance, reliability and distinction".
“Chinese OEMs will now have the ability to select from a wide and diverse range of PD products suitable for every major professional audio application and taste; from the aspirational and iconic “Made in England” product to the new International line.”
Precision Devices are exhibiting at Guanzhou ProLight+Sound 2014 and a representative sample of Precision Devices “Made in England” and International line models will be displayed on the booth.
PD Directors Mark Barnes, Neil Barnes and Mark Oldroyd will be attending the show and, in association with exclusive PD distributor DSTX, will be pleased to meet new and existing OEM clients to discuss business opportunities.
Precision Devices can be found in Hall 2.1, D62.We will also be available to discuss Precision Devices opportunities at Frankfurt ProLight+Sound 2014, Hall 8.0 Stand D81.
