Electrocompaniet USA



Mikal Dreggevik, the company’s managing director commented: “These last few years have seen Electrocompaniet grow by more than 200%, with quality distribution in more than 50 countries worldwide, so now is the right time for us to make this major move into the largest consumer market in the world. ” An innovative sales promotion program is being launched to encourage more dealers to support Electrocompaniet and its products. A major advertising campaign to support the re-launch will appear in the specialist Hi Fi magazines. In addition to this campaign, a full program of reviews is planned for 2009 covering all products. This sales drive will be fully supported by the company from Norway with the US subsidiary carrying all stock requirements, support and sales functions. The COO is Peder Beckman, with more than 20 years experience from the High End industry. Electrocompaniet also look forward to building a larger and stronger network for their customers in the US and Canada with a newly dedicated service department, more retail locations, more outstanding products at various price points, a new production facility, and predictable delivery times for their high-demand products.

buildingLocation and contact
The new main office for the US and Canada will be located in Oakland, just outside San Francisco. The new facilitates holds showrooms, office and stock. The building address is 97 Linden Street building and had its beginnings at the turn of the century when the Standard Underground Cable Co. began to make cables for the new industries of telephones and electric power. In 1918, a two-story brick building was added to the original structure. The cable company relocated its factory to Emeryville in 1928, and the building saw a wide variety of uses after that time. The building was the second structure designed by Walter Mathews, one of Oakland's most important late 19th and early 20th century architects. Rehabilitation and upgrading to its current use was completed in the mid-1990's, is now home to architects, engineers, an art gallery and even a micro-brewery.

Brief history of the managing director, Mikal Dreggevik
Mikal is the CEO and owner of Electrocompaniet. He has always been very interested in music and has in the past played a variety of musical instruments in a non-professional capacity. Music really matters to him and therefore it feels natural for him to continue working to achieve the ideal expressed in the Electrocompaniet slogan, “Closing the gap to the master” i.e. reproduce the music as close as possible to the original sound in the concert venue or the studio (the master tape).
