OLD LYME, CT—Sennheiser electronic will integrate its subsidiary Klein + Hummel (K+H), manufacturer of studio monitors and installed sound products, into the Sennheiser and Neumann companies.
“We would like to benefit from the strength of the Sennheiser and Neumann brands in this business area, too,” explained Volker Bartels, spokesperson for the Sennheiser executive team. “Neumann and Sennheiser are firmly established in the studio and installed sound areas, respectively, and promise a much better market penetration than is at present possible under the brand name of Klein + Hummel.”
Georg Neumann, Berlin, will become responsible for the studio monitor business, while an optimized installed sound portfolio will be continued by Sennheiser. Bartels estimated that the integration of Klein + Hummel will be completed by the new year. For the most part, the employees of K+H will be employed by Sennheiser and Neumann.
