An audio-visual trade specialist in Norfolk is hitting the right notes after acquiring a £21m audio and lighting products distributor.

Midwich, based in Diss, has acquired 100% of the share capital at Sound Technology from its founder Robert Wilson.

Established in 1979 and based in Letchworth Garden City, Sound Technology supplies audio and lighting equipment to professional and commercial clients.

It stocks brands including several under the Harman audio and lighting umbrella, and also sells select electronic musical instruments.

Stephen Fenby, managing director at EDP/EADT Top100 firm Midwich, said: “I believe that the high level of support Sound Technology provides to its vendors is directly aligned with our proven strategy as a specialist distributor.

“The company’s recent entry into the professional lighting market is an exciting proposition and complements our current offering.”

Insight

Holden is a name associated with the motor trade in Norfolk for 90 years. Motoring editor Andy Russell chats to current CEO Tim Holden, third generation in the family motor group, about how it has become a nationally-recognised driving force.

As diesel car registrations drop, more and more motorists are becoming aware of the benefits of hybrid cars and how easy they are to drive. Toyota’s pioneering role in hybrid technology means nearly half its total sales now combine petrol and electric power, says motoring editor Andy Russell.
