The establishment of this new d&b subsidiary is an exciting move for us. We will be able to serve our Chinese sales partners and customers more directly with the best solutions for their professional audio needs in installation and mobile applications. The co-owners and co-workers who will be joining the d&b global team bring in tremendous expertise around d&b systems, audio technology solutions and the Chinese market.
