Martin Tremblay, president and CEO of Groupe Solotech Inc., has announced that Solotech has acquired the assets of Nashville-based J Sound Services (JSS), a design-build company that provides integration and sales of acoustics, professional audio, video, and lighting systems.
Solotech says that this strategic transaction strengthens its positioning in Nashville, TN, and brings systems integration offerings. “Our vision has always been to offer both sales and systems integration and live productions services in all our offices. We have been partnering with JSS for many years already, so this acquisition opportunity is therefore not only momentous but also very well thought out,” says Philip Giffard, president of the Sales and Systems Integration Division at Solotech, who actively led the acquisition. “As North America’s top-10 systems integrators, our Sales and Systems Integration Division has proven its place as a market leader and this addition is in line with our growth strategy.”
Solotech says that JSS has earned a reputation for excelling at providing the "best executed audiovisual solutions possible, specific to the customer’s needs." This acquisition will enable Solotech to continue offering a high level of experience in a broad range of venues and markets such as cultural and special event centres, sports facilities, houses of worship, studio and broadcast, hospitality and retail, corporate enterprise, education, and government.
“Solotech is irrefutably growing rapidly and we are thrilled to join the team,” says Jason Spence, founder and president of JSS. “Our clients will continue to benefit from the high quality of products and services they’ve come to expect from JSS, with the added benefits of economic strength and geographic reach of an international and TOP 10 Systems Integrator in North America. This synergy will definitely answer the needs of all our clients, whether they be straightforward or complex.”
The the new extended team in Nashville will be led by Paul Owen, GM.
Tremblay adds: “Solotech and JSS both value collaboration and excellence, as well as share the common goal of bringing the highest level of professionalism and performance to each of our valued customers, we are very happy to welcome JSS’s employees to the Solotech family.”
