Who We Are
The American Audio Company is a unique Audio Store specialising in amazing North American Audio products and is the eCommerce division of a successful Custom Install Company. With relationships with the vast majority of importers and manufacturers, we are in an amazing position to offer some truly stunning products.
In early 2022 we realised that there were still a large number of North American products and brands that were not on offer or represented here in the UK, so we created AmericanAudioTrade to help bring these products to the UK and promote them to both the Retail and Trade sectors of our industry.
If we are missing a brand / product or there is something specific you would like but cannot find, let us know and we will see what we can do.
Who Are We?
We are three industry friends, who over time have seen the same opportunity appear within our industry. So naturally at trade shows, retail shows, training and over many, many beers and packets of crisps we have talked about how to share our knowledge and experience.
