More AV has extended its Funktion-One distribution to include Belgium and Luxembourg, making it the loudspeaker manufacturer’s representative for the entire Benelux region. The company, which is headquartered in Zoetermeer, Netherlands, has been a key Funktion-One partner for almost 20 years.
More AV, which is led by founder Remco van der Werff, will build on the strong foundation left by outgoing distributor, Soundsystem.be, whose owners – Tia Broodcoorens and Lieven Pillaert – have decided to close the company and pursue personal projects. For Pillaert, that includes working closely with More AV in a consultative capacity.
Funktion-One’s Ann Andrews comments: “We’re delighted that More AV has grown its operation and taken over the distribution of Funktion-One throughout Benelux. We’ve known Remco and his team for a long time and know they will continue with their professional and attentive approach. We’re thankful for everything Soundsystem.be has given as part of the Funktion-One family and wish Tia and Lieven every success in the future.”
More AV’s van der Werff adds: “We are looking forward to growing Funktion-One’s presence in Belgium and Luxemburg and working closely with local dealers and rental partners. We take a lot of pride in the work we do and the brands we represent, and understand the importance of building lasting relationships with our partners.”
In addition to the new distribution arrangement, More AV has increased the size of its
headquarters, adding a small demo room for Funktion-One’s Compact Range.
“Following the challenges of recent years, we’re looking forward to a bright future across the Benelux region,” says van der Werff. “This will be underpinned by the exciting innovations that continue to come out of Funktion-One, with new product launches planned for the coming months.”
