EAW Grows Under New Ownership

Massachusetts-based Eastern Acoustic Works has announced that the recent purchase of the company by the Italy-based RCF Group continues to bolster sales, product innovation, development and support.

"The announcement of our acquisition has served to not only excite our expanding customer base but also inspire interest from companies serving market categories that have been neglected for some time," said T.J. Smith, president of EAW. "We have a strong and knowledgeable sales team in place that is working hard to further our presence in the industry with great success. With the RCF Group behind us, I can't imagine a brighter future."

In a statement, company executives used EAW's Adaptive loudspeakers as an example of "what can be developed when working with a team that is dedicated to advancing the industry through state-of-the-art technology."

"The type of advanced thinking that created Adaptive is alive and well in Whitinsville, [Massachusetts]," Smith said. "We are looking forward to seeing where products like Adaptive and Radius can lead us and the industry. It is an exciting time for our company."

Introduced in 2017, Radius provides industry professionals with a family of loudspeakers for both portable and permanent installation applications.

"Adding EAW to the RCF Group will allow fast and solid growth while encouraging the development of innovative new products and technologies," said Arturo Vicari, CEO of RCF Group. "This is what the company has built its successful 40-plus year history upon."

"With the support of RCF, our potential is infinite," Smith said. "We owe thanks to so many — to those that have helped to build the company to where it is today, to the companies that have continued to support our products — the list is long. We have a very bright future in front of us and welcome you along for the ride."
