Texim – 35 years of success with Electro-Voice
Happy Birthday, Texim! Italy's leading import and distribution enterprise for professional audio equipment is 35 years old, and tells a success story with deep ties to the Electro-Voice brand. Led by Pierfranco Galeone and based near Milan, the company has been the Italian distributor of Electro-Voice systems since 1976. "Electro-Voice is held in enormously high esteem in Italy," says Galeone, “not only on account of its countless high-calibre references, but also as a result of continuity. Its 35 years’ of consistent service to the market is something customers have proved willing to reward."
With an internal staff numbering in two digits – divided between the fields of equipment, service, and financial planning – and a strong team of external representatives, Texim guarantees individual customer service of the highest quality for the MI, concert sound, and fixed installation markets, and has provided sound reinforcement for sports arenas, concert halls, discotheques, houses of worship, schools, television studios, and high-end touring businesses across Italy. This enormous experience, expertise, and hands-on know-how ensures that Texim can offer a custom-tailored solution for every application.
As well as a comprehensive product portfolio and a highly qualified team, two other factors have contributed to Texim’s success: a policy of continuous improvement and a refusal to rest on its laurels. "The team led by Pierfranco Galeone has not let any opportunity slip to increase either its own expertise or that of its customers through training, and to make constant progress," says Robert Hesse, Vice President Sales Communication EMEA of Bosch Communications Systems and Managing Director of EVI Audio. "For example, Texim has been successful in attracting top international names like Peter Mapp, Bob Coffeen, and Don Davis to its in-house seminars. The extraordinary commitment they show across all areas of their business has paid enormous dividends -- it has been both an honour and a great advantage to have had such a strong partner in the region for the last 35 years. We congratulate everyone at Texim on their jubilee, and look forward to working with them for another 35 years!"
Since 1976, Texim has been distributing professional audio equipment throughout Italy. Inter alia, the company based in Renate near Milan is Electro-Voice's Italian distributor. Among the company's references are installations the length and breadth of the country, including Rome (Auditorium of the Papal University, Art Cafe Disco, "Stazione Birra", a pub and restaurant offering live music), Milan (San Raffaele Hospital, Microsoft Auditorium, Nhow Hotel), Rimini (Congress Centre and Auditorium), Florence (Sachall MarqueeTheatre), Verona (Ristori Theatre) and Bolzano (Ice Palace).
