“The SLM Marketplace sale, a non-core business unit and product lines, will enable LOUD to dedicate its resources and solidify its leadership positions in the musical instruments and professional audio markets. Moreover, U.S. Band & Orchestra Supplies is the ideal new owner for SLM Marketplace, Austin and Knilling, since they will ensure that our dealer network for these products will continue to receive the highest levels of service and support,” commented Rodney Olson, President and CEO, LOUD Technologies Inc.
“We are all looking forward to continuing SLM Marketplace’s 105-year St. Louis tradition and to bringing our reputation for impeccable dealer service to the many new customers with whom we are about to do business,” said Mark Ragin, President and Owner, U.S. Band & Orchestra Supplies Inc.
