FBT opens new sales and support office in the UK


London – FBT, the Italian high-end loudspeaker manufacturer, has now established its own UK office and will commence trading from February 2012. Known as FBT Audio (UK) Ltd, the London based company will be focused on sales and distribution of its global brand throughout the UK and Ireland.         

The company will also provide the high levels of professional technology support demanded by their pro-audio and MI customers.


FBT Audio UK‘s joint founding partner and Managing Director, Mark Parkhouse, is well-known within the pro-audio community having held long-term senior positions for more than 15 years, latterly as Head of Sales & Marketing for Trantec at TOA Corporation.  His in-depth knowledge and experience means he is ideally positioned to meet this industry’s demands.


Parkhouse says, “FBT have long been recognized as a major international player in speaker systems and I see this as an exciting opportunity for promoting their comprehensive product line. Many unique technologies are incorporated into the numerous product lines, all of which are designed to enhance the ease of use for the sound engineer and quality of sound for the listener. Focusing initially on the professional loudspeaker range, we will provide a service that is a mix of proven products and high-end consultancy advice combined with more competitive pricing policy.”

Founded in 1963 as a simple artisan workshop, FBT has now grown into a leading international company where every stage of the production chain is carried out in their Italian factory – R&D, plastic molding, electronics, carpentry, paint shop, and quality control. FBT now remains at the cutting edge of speaker system development, with heavy investments in research and high-tech manufacturing. Recent installations are as far afield as Beijing, New Delhi, Dominican Republic, Malaysia, Spain, and Singapore.


Mauro Tanoni, FBT’s Sales Director, says from their Italian headquarters, “One of our company’s strengths is its flexibility to address the diverse demands of a dynamic pro-audio community. We decided to take a different and better approach to marketing and sales in the UK, and we are now pleased to join forces with Mark. I am really excited by this new opportunity and I am confident he will increase our market share within the UK & Ireland thanks to his great expertise and passion for the pro audio market.”
