The company will handle distribution of professional monitoring equipment in both countries. “We are delighted to welcome the Apex to our distribution network, said Jarmo Masko, area sales manager at Genelec. “For a while, we have been looking for a strong player with roots in professional audio that can also effectively serve the important broadcast market and the MI dealer network. Apex fits the bill perfectly.

It has become known as a specialist distributor of pro audio equipment in Belgium and Luxemburg for PA, studio and broadcast, and is headed up by Paul van Hees, managing director, and Rik Hoerée, sales director.
