Radial Engineering Founder Peter Janis
Radial Engineering, the Canadian manufacturer of direct boxes and audio solutions, has been acquired by Mike Belitz, president and CEO of Ultimate Support Systems.
Established in 1991, Radial Engineering Ltd. was originally developed as a range of cable products by outgoing president and CEO Peter Janis. The release of their first direct box in 1996, the Radial JDI, was the beginning in a long line of innovations that saw Radial become a leading name in premium direct boxes and audio solutions. In the intervening years, the Radial brand family and distribution network has grown to include a diverse catalog of brands, including: Primacoustic, Tonebone, Reamp, Hafler, Dynaco, Iso-Max and Jensen Transformers Inc. Ultimate Support and Radial Engineering say they will enjoy shared strategic and logistical advantages under leadership of Belitz; with the end result of wider availability to retailers, distributors, and end-users around the world.
“I have always been passionate about premium accessories in the music industry,” says Belitz. “Instruments come in and out of fashion, but musicians and audio professionals will always need well designed, high quality solutions. Ownership of Ultimate Support Systems and Radial Engineering Ltd. will offer incredible possibilities for the future.”
