L-Acoustics’ holding company, L-Group, has announced its acquisition of Camco.
A maker of high-end amplified controllers, DSP and audio network solutions, Camco is based in Wenden, Germany, has 50 employees and sells its products in 60 countries around the globe, in addition to supplying components to some of the industry’s leading professional sound system manufacturers.
Camco will maintain its full team and headquarters in Germany and will continue to manufacture its signature i-series, Vortex, D-Power and Q-Power amplified controllers while also developing OEM solutions for L-Acoustics and other manufacturers. Camco will keep its brand name and will become a sister company of L-Acoustics, woodworking manufacturer SIMEA and L-ISA, creator of immersive sound art solutions.
“For over a decade, Camco has been a key supply partner of L-Acoustics.
