Aiwa America to get audio from the U.K.
The U.K. factory will supply the main section of the systems, which will be combined with U.S.-manufactured speakers and sold in the United States.
Aiwa officials said the company will import its best-selling mini audio system from the AIWA (U.K.) LTD. Gwent factory in South Wales. The plant, which began operations in 1980, is in the midst of a second expansion that Aiwa officials said will double both the size of the facility and its work-force mid-1995.
Mini systems, sometimes called bookshelf systems,' have been a fast growing category in consumer electronics.
"For Aiwa America, this new source of product is a welcome development said Yukio Yamamoto, Aiwa America president. "And with the expansion of the U.K. plant we can be assured of a continuous supply of our best-selling models here in the U.S."
