Alcons Audio continues evolution with new UK base

14 August 2008

Dutch loudspeaker manufacturer Alcons Audio has recently opened a dedicated UK base, which will be headed up by Stephen Badham.

Despite its relative youth – Alcons was launched by managing director Tom Back in 2002 – the company has made a big impact in the pro audio market with its evolutionary approach to loudspeaker manufacture and product designs based around multi-patented, pro-ribbon transducer technology.

Back recognises the need to look at key, influential territories, but adopts an organic approach to expansion, knowing that when the time is right, the opportunities will present themselves. That happened for Alcons Audio Germany only six months after the company’s inception.
Although new to Alcons, Badham has been in pro audio for more than 10 years and boasts a CV that is an undeniably good fit for the company. “Prior to getting into pro audio, I was a pro musician,” he says. “I also have a diploma in acoustics from the University of Salford, and I am a full member of the Institute of Acoustics.

“Before I joined Alcons, I was with EAW handling application support (EASE models, technical sales, system design and commissioning) for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. I’d known of Alcons for some time, but a chance meeting at a tradeshow piqued my interest in the brand further. Then I heard the product and, as far as I was concerned, it was a done deal.”
