Audiotonix has acquired Solid State Logic (SSL) as part of its expanding group, which already includes audio brands DiGiCo, DiGiGrid, Calrec and Allen & Heath. The deal brings together some of the leading mixing console companies.

James Gordon, CEO of Audiotonix, commented, “We are growing the Audiotonix Group with professional audio brands that have exceptional technology, committed people and a real passion for what they do. With their history and reputation, their enthusiasm and loyal customer base, SSL is ideally placed to be the next partner in the group. The whole group will benefit by having SSL as an integral part of the team going forward. Having their help to further expand our international reach, technology and customer base will be a lot of fun.”

Antony David, MD, Solid State Logic, added, “I am very proud of the achievements our team have made to date with the expansion of SSL. To reach our full potential we need the support and resources of a larger group to help us achieve our aspirations. In Audiotonix we have found a partner that is as fiercely obsessed about audio, products and customer service as we are. Audiotonix’s success in investing in and nurturing similar audio-focused businesses was crucial to us.”

Peter Gabriel, the majority shareholder in SSL, is an investor in Audiotonix as part of the transaction. He added, “My relationship with SSL began as a user, a customer and then as part owner. Each manufacturer has their own particular markets, strengths and idiosyncrasies, but through collaboration, there will be a lot of opportunities to spread knowledge and skills to benefit the group as a whole. I am also excited by what could be created by all these new potential synergies, so I have chosen to use a chunk of the sale money to invest in this newly expanded version of Audiotonix. I wish Audiotonix and all who now sail in her every success.”
