Sound Vision Technologies, the parent company of TruAudio and VSSL, which are global manufacturers of architectural, outdoor, commercial speakers and native streaming audio system amplifiers, announced the acquisition of Current Audio from SCP Distributors

According to Sound Vision Technologies, the purchase will better serve Current Audio’s existing dealer and distribution network. Current Audio's co-founder, Ron Maurer, and vice president of sales, Rich Turner, will continue the oversight of the operational and sales efforts, and will complement Sound Vision Technologies' other audio brands. 

“The two companies have shared a close relationship for many years and will use their core values to bring the best of each to the industry,” notes Ron Davies, CEO of Sound Vision Technologies.

The two companies will utilize Current Audio’s distribution channel to further expand Sound Vision’s product lines. Current Audio distributors and authorized dealers will have immediate access to Sound Vision Technologies’ complete product portfolio, including equipment racks, cooling fans, iPad mounting, and native streaming audio amplifiers. 

Bryan Garner, president of Sound Vision Technologies, points out the newly acquired company's product line enhances the products that TruAudio and VSSL offer. 

“Our acquisition of Current Audio complements our overall offerings and allows expansion through their distribution channels, adding exposure to VSSL, FORGE, Unified Copper, and Padimount, to better support A/V Integrators,” says Garner.

Structured Cable Products (SCP) acquired Current Audio in August 2016. Current Audio was founded in 2008 .
