L-Acoustics appoints NMK Electronics as CPd for the Middle East
The market-leading company set to increase the region’s demand for high-end audio and bring the latest technologies to market
MARCOUSSIS, France – October 25th – With offices in Dubai, Sharjah, and Doha, NMK Electronics, a Midwich Group company, is a leading multi-brand audio, video, and lighting distributor in the Middle East, serving the region for over 34 years. With a portfolio of reputable brands, a dynamic team, and a strong financial foundation, the company is a market leader in the industry. Trusted by leading consultants, system integrators, and end-users, NMK has supported top-tier clients on prominent local projects across GCC, a key to its appointment as L-Acoustics CPd (Certified Provider Distributor) for the region.
“Our team of pro-audio specialists with decades of experience respond to local demand and also offer technical and design support across the board,” says Dino Drimakis, Commercial Director at NMK Electronics. “NMK works closely with partners from several market segments of the AV industry. We are thrilled to add a world-leading audio manufacturer to our portfolio. L-Acoustics fits perfectly with our product mix. We also appreciate their drive to consistently innovate and enhance the experience for audiences and end-users. We are proud to bring their innovative technologies to the region.”
NMK’s mission is to increase the demand for high-end audio and to bring the latest technologies to market. To help accomplish this, NMK is constructing a 16,500 square foot experience center in Al Quoz, the heart of the city, to showcase real-life audio-visual applications. L-Acoustics L-ISA immersive technology will be a centerpiece of the NMK experience center.
“L-ISA technology is becoming ever more prevalent both for portable systems and for install applications around the world,” explains Chris Mead, L-Acoustics Sales Manager, Middle East – India – Africa. “Being able to showcase L-ISA in the NMK Experience Centre where end-users, consultants, integrators, rental companies, and promoters can experience it will open even more doors in the region for us.”
Drimakis agrees that having a space to experience L-Acoustics technology will drive demand for the brand in the region. “The entire Gulf region is always looking to push the boundaries when it comes to technology,” he explains. “We are delighted we will be able to provide the access for people to experience these pioneering technologies. It needs to be heard to be fully believed!
“We live in a critical market shift era in our industry where the IT and Security markets have entered the AV industry and started to commoditize it,” Drimakis continues. “We’re here to facilitate that change, and to raise the bar on the demand for AV expertise which is crucial to the success of these complex integration projects. Our ultimate goal is to enhance the complete industry across the Middle East. If we succeed in this approach, it will benefit the complete supply chain and enhance the skill set of the market. Our approach will be organic and selfless to the community.”
“Having been based in Dubai for over 10 years, I have always seen NMK as a leading and forward-thinking reseller in the region, and the construction of the experience center in Dubai is a testament to that,” Mead concludes. “NMK are known for their transparency and straightforward way of doing business and have a great support team behind them to make sure the job is done right. Their corporate culture is a superb fit with L-Acoustics and will make for great synergy.”
