UK - AV solutions distributor Tukans has been acquired by CUK Audio, a specialist solutions distributor serving the AV, installation, live and MI markets.
Tukans will continue to operate as an independent company from its base in York, whilst logistics, accounting and IT for the group will be consolidated at CUK Audio’s East Kilbride headquarters. The operational change will enable the best use of resources throughout the group and enable both teams to better support their client base.
Stuart Thomson, managing director, CUK Audio, comments: “A few years ago, as CUK Audio started its transition into supplying video products, I realised that Tukans would be a great fit with us, and I’m are delighted that Yvonne [Womersley] and Andrew [Popely] shared my vision and could see how this acquisition would benefit both companies.
“The acquisition substantially enhances the group’s expertise and expands the solutions both companies can offer their clients. It also reinforces CUK Audio’s commitment to those customers looking for innovative video products, following the recent addition of video specialist, Andrew Smith, to the role of director of business development.”
Yvonne Womersley, general manager at Tukans, adds: “For Andrew Popely and I, the last 14 years have been great fun, and we are both proud of what we have created. However, we are delighted to be joining CUK Audio for the next phase of our journey. Gaining access to a much larger sales and technical resource will certainly benefit Tukans customers and suppliers. There is a wealth of knowledge and expertise in both companies and I’m looking forward to the journey ahead of us.”
Simon Druce, sales director at CUK Audio, says: “Adding Tukans to the CUK Audio group is just one part of our strategy to strengthen our partnership with current and future customers, by providing them with advanced technical solutions, not only for audio but also video, system control and data networking. The expectations of end-users are changing fast and we want to be there to help our customers meet and exceed those expectations.”
