INDIANAPOLIS (May 6, 2013) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, today announces the addition of independent Holland distribution partner Mika Distribution. Effective today, the company serves as an official distributor of the brand’s high-performance home theater speakers and subwoofers with a focus for impacting the country’s HiFi market.
As a distributor, Mika Distribution will act as an extension of the brand in developing new relationships with HiFi retailers throughout Holland to further enhance the Klipsch brand and its positioning in the country. Given the company’s focus, the distributor will be selling many of Klipsch’s renowned product lines, including Palladium, Reference and Heritage to name a few.
