Leisuretec adds Mackie to audio brand portfolio

Leisuretec has signed a new UK distribution partnership with Mackie, effective immediately.

Leighton Buzzard-based Leisuretec is a supplier of professional and commercial audio, lighting, video and special effects brands.

The agreement sees the firm team up once again with Mackie’s main UK distributor Polar Audio, and will allow Leisuretec to strengthen the mixer, monitor and loudspeaker manufacturer’s presence in the MI retail, DJ and install markets.

“We have been long time partners with Polar Audio distributing their brands very successfully over the years. Mackie is an extremely good fit to Leisuretec’s portfolio enhancing even further our offering to the trade in the MI retail sector," said Cliff Dounting (pictured right of centre), Leisuretec managing director. "Indeed our roots are from retail and we are strong supporters of this very important sector of the industry and passionately believe in providing all the retail shops up and down the country with a great service and excellent products from stock. The addition of Mackie strengthens Leisuretec’s offering to the whole of the trade including hire and event plus installation companies, it really is a great value for money brand."

Polar Audio MD John Midgley (pictured left of centre) added: “Leisuretec is a long-standing partner of Polar Audio and as such has proved its ability to reach key trade customers in the DJ and installation markets successfully over many years. Adding the Mackie range of products to the Leisuretec portfolio will ensure the continued growth into these key target markets, backed by the Leisuretec team. The timing of this new cooperation could not be better with the introduction of the new THUMP and SRM powered loudspeaker ranges that are in huge demand with both mobile DJs and bands.”
