Proel one of the largest distributors of Pro audio, MI and lighting equipment in Italy has been growing with the addition of their own brands and even the acquisition a few years ago of the TruboSound brand and company. Now they are moving in a strong way into the US market.
IN their recent announcement they have control of their US operations Proel USA and are hiring people to put them on the map in the US.
A little history from their site:
PROEL is a leading company in the design, manufacture and sale of audio, video and lighting systems for the world of entertainment and special events as well as for AVL Systems. Based in Italy, in Sant’Omero (Te).
In 2007 PROEL acquired the historic English company Turbosound Ltd., leader in sound reinforcement, whose name has always been associated with international tours and legendary rock bands (Pink Floyd, Iron Maiden, Dire Straits, The Shadows, Robbie Williams, Jamiroquai, Nine Inch Nails, Natasha Bedingfield, David Gilmour and so on…).
In September 2003 a private equity group invested in the company, acquiring a minority stake, with the aim of supporting its development and its listing on the Italian Stock Exchange. This operation immediately produced a strong boost in the management’s motivation and provided PROEL with a reliable and qualified corporate governance advising team.
