Zound Industries has announced a large scale merchandising expansion with Best Buy, a leader of technology products, services and solutions. This will be the first time Marshall products will be available at BestBuy.com and all Best Buy store locations throughout the US.

“It’s great to see that we are strenghtening our partnership with BestBuy. It’s a testament to our current product offering and our product roadmap, as well as the engagement from our US team”, said Pierre Carlson, Chief Commercial Officer, Zound Industries.
