Some of the UK’s most familiar Japanese AV brands are set for a return. Premium Audio Company, a subsidiary of VOXX International Corporation, has announced that Onkyo, Integra, and Pioneer will soon be available for order through its existing network of distribution and retail partners in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

The first products will be available this autumn, details yet to be announced.

In September 2021, Premium Audio Company, through its joint venture with Sharp, acquired the Onkyo and Integra brands, and, through VOXX, it established a licensing and distribution agreement with Pioneer Corporation. The joint venture includes all intellectual property and responsibility for product development, engineering, sales, marketing, and distribution of Onkyo’s home entertainment business.

As part of the joint venture, Sharp assumed all manufacturing of these products, which includes a variety of AV and stereo receivers, amplifiers and hi-fi components under the Onkyo, Integra, Pioneer, and Pioneer Elite brands.

Paul Jacobs, President and Chief Executive Officer of Premium Audio Company said: “Demand for Onkyo, Integra and Pioneer products has been very high, and we expect this to intensify in the coming years. We have been working very closely with Sharp to ramp up production and have grown our business significantly since the acquisition was completed. We have big plans for Onkyo and the other brands, and as we build production and expand distribution, we believe sales will more than double in the near term.”
