Audioprof Group International was established as a holding company to develop and build strong audio companies with a focus on specific niches in the audio industry. It owns a majority stake in Apart Audio since 2009 and in Community Professional Loudspeakers since 2015. Within Audioprof Group International both companies are developed as standalone entities under the same umbrella respecting their market focus, customer base, culture and heritage. The main shareholder of Audioprof Group International is 3D Investments, a Belgian family owned long term investment holding.
Within Audioprof Group International, each brand develops their own strategy, brand identity, supplier and customer relationships. The priority is doing what is best for each brand, allowing further growth and sustainable business development.
By joining forces within the Audioprof Group International, the brands benefit from “best practice sharing” from both sides. As both organizations share the same entrepreneurial background, such synergies are developed in a pragmatic way.
