Headquartered in Buckinghamshire, Martin Audio specialises in the design and manufacture of high performance loudspeaker systems for commercial installations, tours and events across the globe, including the London’s British Summertime Festival at Hyde Park, Rock in Rio and iconic London super-club Ministry of Sound.
The business, which was founded in the 1970s by legendary Australian sound engineer Dave Martin, has produced touring systems for international supergroups such as Pink Floyd, The Who and Supertramp.
It now has a turnover of around £20m and employs more than 60 people.
LDC backed the MBO of Martin Audio from global audio specialist Loud Audio in July 2018 with a £12m investment to enable the business to further develop its product range, improve its sales and marketing capabilities through the extension of its global distribution network and enhance its digital infrastructure through software development.
Being a trusted brand and operating in a growing market means the time is right for us to fast-track the growth of the business. The next phase of our journey needs a growth-focused partner like LDC and the team has demonstrated a shared vision for the business from the outset.Dom Harter, Managing Director, Martin Audio
