The product families available through Midwich are commercial audio, installed sound, and portable performance speakers. Respectively, these provide a complete range of public address products and systems to meet every audio need, professional speaker systems and amplifiers for installation in clubs, stadia, sport domes, pubs and congress centres, and speakers ideal for musicians and other performers who need quality along with mobility.
Lee Baker, business manager at Midwich commented: ‘We get approached by a lot of potential vendors. However, the reputation RCF has in the market and the quality of its products and range meant we had to establish a partnership with the firm. RCF has the same goals as we do – to provide fantastic audio products that allow our dealers to make great margins. ”
Phil Price, UK director of installed sound sales at RCF commented: ‘We are delighted to welcome Midwich to our specialist UK network of regional sub-distributors.

Comprising more than thirty different styles of mount, the Erard range is already proving a huge hit with our retail customers and this is hardly surprising given the quality of the products.”
