Numark Take On Akai Brand

All American distribution sewn up      06/07/04

Since the announcement of Akai's new MPC-1000, the affordable MPC model, Akai have been sorting out their distribution to ensure we can get hold of their goodies. In the last couple of days, Numark Industries - they who are mostly known for their DJ products but who also acquired Alesis when they were up for grabs, have announced that they will now be handling the official distribution rights of Akai Professional Musical Instruments (APMI) for the Americas. "Long known as an innovator of high-quality studio samplers, digital recorders, and electronic musical instruments, Akai Pro is an ideal fit for our distribution model," says Numark CEO Jack O' Donnell. "We are very excited about adding the Akai Pro catalog to our offerings. Our goal is to supply a broad range of high technology products to the music industry that appeal to all types of musicians - DJ's and hobbyists alike. Akai Pro's product line is an ideal complement to our growing range of professional product lines," O'Donnell continued. O'Donnell also owns and distributes Alesis Studio Electronics, which has a history of providing affordable, professional digital recorders, synthesizers, studio monitors, and various DSP products to the musical instrument markets. As efforts begin to integrate Akai Pro's marketing, technical support, and sales administration into it's current model, Numark will continue to offer dealers a streamlined, efficient way to purchase a diverse range of hi-tech products.
