INDIANAPOLIS (May 5, 2005) - Klipsch Audio Technologies launched its international web site today. The site, which can be accessed directly from klipsch.com, allows French- and Spanish-speaking consumers to obtain product and dealer locator information in their native languages.
Within the next year, Klipsch will add German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and Portuguese to the site. This multi-lingual tool was created in response to the company's growth in the international market and plans for continued expansion. It also reinforces the company's dedication to consumers and getting new audiences excited about high-performance audio.
"We want consumers all over the world to learn about our products and understand the incredible legacy of the Klipsch brand," said Cris Pyle, Klipsch director of marketing. "This new multi-lingual web site is one example of the ways in which Klipsch is making itself more accessible to a global audience."
In February, Klipsch Audio, Inc., parent company of Klipsch Audio Technologies, announced it will expand its reach and capabilities with its immediate entry into new markets with multiple brands. At the same time, Klipsch announced the acquisition of the brand name and key assets of Jamo A/S, a privately held Danish audio company highly regarded for its innovative design and technology.
