Mike Belitz, president and CEO of Ultimate Support Systems, has acquired Radial Engineering Ltd.
The announcement was made at the 2018 NAMM Show which opened its doors yesterday at the Anaheim Convention Centre in California. Established in 1991, Radial was originally developed as a range of cable products by outgoing president and CEO Peter Janis, eventually developing into one of the leading names in premium direct boxes and audio solutions.
Belitz’ Ultimate Support Systems provides support solutions and music accessories to the music industry, as well as studio furniture and acoustic treatment solutions.
The Radial family and distribution network has grown to include a number of brands including: Primacoustic, Tonebone, Reamp, Hafler, Dynaco, Iso-Max and Jensen Transformers Inc.
Ultimate Support and Radial will benefit from shared strategic and logistical advantages under Belitz’ leadership, with the end result of wider availability to global retailers, distributors, and end users.
"I have always been passionate about premium accessories in the music industry. Instruments come in and out of fashion, but musicians and audio professionals will always need well designed, high quality solutions,” said Belitz. “Ownership of Ultimate Support Systems and Radial Engineering Ltd. will offer incredible possibilities for the future."
Radial is at the NAMM Show this week unveiling a plethora of new products, more details of which are available here.
