"We’re very excited about the opportunities this acquisition creates. Both the collections of brands and the teams that manage them complement each other in almost every way. Although it will take time to fully integrate the two companies, we look forward to this process and we’re extremely confident that the combined brand strengths and team talents will result in continued growth and enhanced business value for our retail partners."
Clay Edwards, President of Hohner, Inc., states:
"We, at Hohner, are equally excited about this opportunity for both our companies. Together, we can do more for our dealers and consumers, as well as the advocacy and growth of music education, than either of us could have done alone."
For the time being, retailers should continue doing business with both companies as normal. However, KHS America will begin working immediately to integrate the teams and business processes with the long-term goal of combined operations in one facility.
About Hohner and Sonor
For over 150 years it has been Hohner's declared mission to bring the joy of music making to people all over the world, to provide them with the best possible instruments so that they can discover their own musical creativity and experience the emotional and communicative power of music. As legacy brands, Hohner and Sonor have long been recognized as leaders in innovation and quality, and as the gold standards of sound.
Sonor artists include Steve Smith, Danny Carey, Jack DeJohnette, Gavin Harrison, Chris Coleman and Jojo Mayer among many others.
In 1875 Johannes Link opened a little workshop for simple military drums and drumheads. This was the modest beginning of the Sonor company. In 2015 Sonor celebrates its 140th anniversary (yes, that's 140 years!) so you can expect some really nice and special product news on display at the 2015 Winter NAMM Show you don't wanna miss out on.
