INDIANAPOLIS, IND. – July 12, 2022 — Premium Audio Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation (“VOXX”), is pleased to announce that its Onkyo, Integra, and Pioneer brands of audio video solutions will soon be available for order through its existing network of distribution and retail partners in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Inventory will be available this fall.
In September 2021, Premium Audio Company, through its joint venture with Sharp, acquired the Onkyo and Integra brands, and, through VOXX, it established a licensing and distribution agreement with Pioneer Corporation. The joint venture includes all intellectual property and responsibility for product development, engineering, sales, marketing and distribution of Onkyo’s home entertainment business. As part of the joint venture, Sharp assumed all manufacturing of these products, which includes a variety of A/V and stereo receivers, amplifiers and hi-fi components under the Onkyo, Integra, Pioneer and Pioneer Elite brands.
Paul Jacobs, President and Chief Executive Officer of Premium Audio Company stated, “Demand for Onkyo, Integra and Pioneer products has been very high, and we expect this to intensify in the coming years. We have been working very closely with Sharp to ramp up production and have grown our business significantly since the acquisition was completed. We have big plans for Onkyo and the other brands and as we build production and expand distribution, believe sales will more than double in the near-term.”
Combining the number one speaker brand in the world with the most technically sophisticated Japanese electronics brands ushers in a new era of design, innovation, and performance. Premium Audio Company looks forward to another 75+ years of creating industry-leading products, profitability for its partners, and connecting people to their passion for entertainment.
