• Midwich acquires New Media

        • Midwich has acquired Germany-based, Bauer und Trummer GmbH, who trade as New Media. Joint founders and Managing Directors Johannes Bauer and Tobias Trummer will continue to lead the business as part of the group.

          New Media is a specialist distributor of broadcast and professional video products including cameras, recording hardware, editing software and accessories. The Company distributes product from vendors including Blackmagic Design, Livestream and Vitec.  

          The acquisition enables the entry of the group into the DACH broadcast and professional video market. After the successful purchase of Holdan Limited in the UK in 2016, the acquisition underlines the Midwich Group’s investment in broadcast technology, which continues to converge with the traditional AV market covered in Germany by Kern & Stelly Medientechnik GmbH.

          The transaction is further delivery of the group’s strategy to grow operations through a combination of organic development and selective acquisitions.

          Lutz Kern, Regional Director (DACH), Midwich Group said, “I am delighted to welcome Johannes, Tobias and the rest of the New Media team to the Midwich Group.  As one of the largest AV markets in Europe, expanding our technology offering in the DACH region was a strategic priority. We will look to continue strengthening the Company’s position in the broadcast market, and work with the business to build an exciting proposition for both the Group’s new and existing customers in the region.”

          Johannes Bauer, Joint Managing Director, New Media added,“the New Media team is very excited at the prospect of working with the Midwich team – and particularly our new colleagues at Holdan and Kern & Stelly. With additional resources, support and market access, we expect to be able to provide even stronger product and service support to our customers, and deeper market penetration to our vendors.”
