DiGiCo joins Electra Partners to form console group

DiGiCo has joined forces with Allen & Heath and Calrec to form a new group of console manufacturers under Electra Partners.

James Gordon, managing director of DiGiCo, will become CEO of the new group. “We have bold plans for the group but it is imperative that each company maintains its own independence and style,” he said. “None of these brands needs to trade off each other's technology or reputation.

“The strategy is to share technology and resource across the group and allow some interconnectivity across the product lines.”

Charles Elkington, investment partner at Electra Partners, said: “DiGiCo augments our existing investment in the professional audio sector. We have worked hard over the last 18 months to bring together these three successful businesses.

“We look forward to working with James Gordon and his team to grow the group, while also preserving the distinctive brand identity and excellent customer relationships of each business.”
