SSE acquires ETA Sound

SSE Audio Group has acquired ETA Sound, in a bid to further expand its growing pro audio operations.

ETA owner Eddie Thomas will bring a new dimension to the Audio Groups, as SSE managing director John Penn explained: “We have been talking to Eddie for a while about bringing his expertise to SSE and incorporating his complementary activities into the Group. His particular area of operation is the design and installation of large format audio and emergency evacuation installations in stadia, shopping malls and large spaces.

“This is a natural bolt on for SSE, and adds to our skill set and range in the audio installation market, meaning that there is very little we don’t now cover in terms of what we can do in the audio environment,” he continued. “Eddie is a well respected and experienced individual, who adds another dimension to what SSE can offer its clients.”

Thomas added: “ETA is well known for it’s large format installation work, and for it’s maintenance and support activities following those installations. With the extensive back up and support offered by the SSE electronics, fabrication, installation and service departments we are now offering a 360 degree service to our range of clients, which include arenas, stadia and many corporate customers.

He concluded: “I have brought my experienced team with me to SSE and look forward to the future within the growing SSE organisation.”
