the distributor of Ampetronic products for Australia.
Jands Managing Director Paul Mulholland describes the Ampetronic brand as
a perfect fit for Jands, underlining the company’s commitment to providing their
professional AV customers with complete end-to-end product and service
solutions by partnering with only the finest brands available.
He explained that Ampetronic has been a global leader in hearing loop
assistive listening technology since the company’s foundation almost thirty
years ago, and has also led the market in Australia since their introduction
around 15 years ago.
Ampetronic Managing Director Julian Pieters says they are impressed with
Jands’ professionalism and technical capability. Ampetronic plans to introduce
several new products, tools and support services this year that will change the
way the industry works with hearing loops. Jands has the reputation, the reach
and the commitment to deliver Ampetronic’s offering to the market, with the two
companies coming together to make a very positive impact on provision of
hearing assistance across Australia.

team at Jands, which will deliver top notch education and training, as well as
the rapid design and support services expected by their customers.
Hearing loops are imperative to providing equality of access to audio
services to people with hearing aids. Popular amongst people with hearing loss,
hearing loops offer a dignified solution that doesn’t require an individual to
wear additional receivers. The sound quality is tailored to the individual's specific

According to Jands National Sales Manager Jeff Bolt, legislative
requirements combined with general community awareness of assistive listening
technology, has created a strong and growing market in Australia for hearing loops.
Jeff MacKenzie, head of Jands Technical Resource Team adds that Ampetronic
is not only a technology leader in their field with an impressive list of
technology innovations, but also shares common principles and beliefs with Jands
including the importance of education and training to the success of systems. Ampetronic
invests heavily in providing training for users, designers and installers of
