L-Acoustics’ holding company buys Camco

Team from LAcoustics and Camco

Camco has been acquired by L-Acoustics’ holding company, L-Group, in a move that is hoped to propel both manufacturers in to new markets.

L’Acoustics has worked with Camco - manufacturer of amplified controllers, DSP and audio network technologies – as one of its suppliers for a number of years. 

Hervé Guillaume, managing director of L-Group, said: “For over a decade, Camco has been a key supply partner of L-Acoustics. Their expertise in electronics for the professional sound industry has contributed to the success of the L-Acoustics amplified controllers.

“Welcoming them into the L-Group family of companies will allow both L-Acoustics and Camco to continue growing our research and development expertise. This merger will give us the tools to develop future products to better serve our clients and explore new markets.”

Reiner Sassmann, managing director at Camco, welcomed the move and said: “We are excited to join forces with a leader in the professional sound industry.” 

Camco will maintain its full team and headquarters in Germany and continue to manufacture its signature i-series, Vortex, D-Power and Q-Power amplified controllers while also developing OEM solutions for L-Acoustics and other manufacturers. Camco will keep its brand name and will become a sister company of L-Acoustics, woodworking manufacturer SIMEA, and L-ISA, creator of immersive sound art solutions.
