Integration Controls First to Bring Bang & Olufsen Products to St. Louis
Ultra-premium AV products allow consumers to elevate their acoustic and visual environments
ST. LOUIS (May 23, 2023) – Integration Controls, an industry leader in “invisible” technology that simplifies and enriches life through curated technologies connected by design, announced today that it is the first supplier of Bang & Olufsen’s ultra-premium products in the St. Louis metro area. Bang & Olufsen is known as a legacy brand committed to boundary-pushing technology in the audio and home entertainment space and dedicated to the highest standards of sound, craftsmanship, and design; this is what has set the brand apart from competitors for the last century. This aligns with Integration Controls’ mission to enrich client experiences at home through smart, integrated technologies that work well together, reliably, all while looking beautiful.
Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen founded the company in 1925 with a redesign of the radio. Nearly a century later, Bang & Olufsen is synonymous with luxury audio technology that continues to place the company at the forefront of audio innovation.
“We strive to deliver technology and integrations that improve the experience our clients have in their homes,” said Jamie Briesemeister, co-founder and CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Integration Controls. “Bang & Olufsen products allow us to offer clients something more unique and much higher performing than what is commonly seen in big box retail environments. With a unique combination of design aesthetics, finish options, and impeccable sound, our clients can now elevate their acoustic and visual environments beyond what we previously offered. The simplicity of both Bang & Olufsen’s craftsmanship, beauty, and technology set the products apart and we are thrilled to be the first to bring their craftsmanship, legacy, and excellence to the St. Louis area.”
Integration Controls provides home automation and home control solutions, enabling consumers to customize and control lighting, entertainment, motorized window treatments, security, and overall environment in their homes easily and simply. Through products and processes that enhance the livability, practicality, and usability of the home, Integration Controls makes the experience of living in a space both functional and fabulous. Bang & Olufsen will be one of several exclusive brands featured when Integration Controls opens their showroom for clients, architects, designers, and builders in summer 2024.
“As Bang & Olufsen continues to grow brand recognition in North America and excel in the custom installation market, Integration Controls is a great partner to bring our product to customers in the St. Louis metro area,” noted Aaron McCarty, Head of CI Sales for Bang & Olufsen Americas.
This special partnership is many years in the making. “I’m thrilled to finally bring Bang & Olufsen products to St. Louis and to our client base. B&O shares in our commitment to quality and their products help us facilitate what we do every day—creating entertainment, ambiance, comfort, and peace of mind clients want when living in their spaces,” continued Briesemeister.
