Further tremors are being felt following the Australian distribution shake-up of late 2017 as Jands has taken on Bosch’s pro audio and commercial communication brands, Electro-Voice and Dynacord. The Bosch brands join L-Acoustics and QSC, which were added to the Jands distribution portfolio at the start of 2018.

‘Following Jands’ resignation late last year of several audio lines, I am pleased to once again be in a position to provide contracting style loudspeakers and amplifiers to our customers,’ said Paul Mulholland, managing director of Jands. ‘As Jands restructured our product offering, around our strengths in corporate, government and education, our contracting customers made it clear they wanted to be able to source a complete solution from us. When we saw the new product offering from EV and Dynacord at InfoComm, we quickly realised Bosch represented the perfect partner.’

Jands will offer sales and support for a range of Dynacord and Electro-Voice pro audio products, including the IPX multichannel installation DSP power amplifiers, Evid and EVC Series loudspeakers, as well as the EV Innovations range.

‘Bosch is well known for our commitment to excellent service and support and by entering into this partnership with a strategic national distributor like Jands, who have the expertise to support the needs of the customer, we will continue to provide the quality products and services that people expect when they buy Dynacord and Electro-Voice,’ commented Chris Dellenty, general manager – Oceania at Bosch Security and Safety Systems. ‘Our pro sound team are excited by this alliance, and we look forward to a prosperous long-term relationship.’-ProAVLAsia
