Precision Devices press ahead with plans for the future despite Covid-19 slowdown

While the Covid-19 pandemic may have brought with it the indefinite closure and postponement of entertainment venues and live events, world-leading loudspeaker component and sound system manufacturers Precision Devices have been hard at work behind the scenes to ensure that their business is able to capitalise on the reopening of the economy.

Since March 2020 when Covid-19 lockdowns were first implemented in the UK, the company has been making plans for the revival of the events sector and is preparing to provide clients with the capability to deliver optimal performance solutions when events are able to resume.

The business has continued its operations throughout the pandemic at its facilities in the UK and in China, ensuring a continued service and supply of stock to customers. It has also used the last year to focus on developing innovative new products alongside improvements to its current bestsellers, which will result in a new product range that will launch in earnest in 2021 and stand the company in good stead for the future.

Managing Director Mark Barnes [pictured] said: “We have never been busier or more focused on new business development than now.

“Far from being overwhelmed by the ongoing period of disruption in 2020, we took the decision to view the situation as an opportunity to focus on refinement of our existing product lines and development of new products which will excite and inspire both our existing global customer network and attract new clients. Instead of losing focus on our core strengths and moving into other business areas, we have remained wholly committed and faithful to our core ethos: to develop, manufacture and supply the world’s most refined, high-performance professional audio components capable of operating in the world’s most demanding of audio environments.

“Meeting the twin objectives of refinement in presentation but rugged reliance in performance is a challenge but one we believe we have achieved, not least through the introduction of new chassis tooling and a host of detail improvements across our product range.”

This month, Precision Devices has launched some of its exciting new product models available in the UK and Europe. Drawing upon the latest Klippel measurement and analysis system to refine all designs, the company is set to emerge from the pandemic leaner, stronger and better able to meet clients’ expectations and requirements than ever before.

February 6 also saw Precision Devices launch its new company website, which forms part of the company’s systematic overhaul and is the result of one of the firm’s most ambitious single design phases in its entire thirty-year brand history.
