Sennheiser Expands Irish Operations With Acquisition of Professional Audio Ltd. Units
Sennheiser has announced the acquisition of several business units of Professional Audio Ltd. (PAL) in Ireland. This new and exciting step in the development of Sennheiser’s Irish operation follows a mutual agreement between Sennheiser GmbH & Co. KG and PAL, which among others sold Sennheiser products in Ireland.
Sennheiser already employs over 300 people at its manufacturing plant in Tullamore, where it produces headphones, headphone capsules, audiology products, studio monitors, and products for the integrated systems sector.
“Ireland is an important market for us and we want to make sure that our customers there continue to be well supported,” says Daniel Sennheiser, Sennheiser’s CEO. “Drawing business for this territory directly into our global operation means that we are able to offer the same level of service that we offer everywhere else in the world. At the same time, keeping key members of the existing team provides both consistency and familiarity.”
“PAL has worked with Sennheiser in Ireland for more than 25 years and we have enjoyed building the Sennheiser brand during this time,” adds PAL’s Gerry Forde. “This latest development is a testament to Sennheiser’s vision and commitment to Ireland.”
