Press releases

A lot of things are happening at ICEpower, and you will soon be able to read ICEpower’s new AND old press releases.

50% / 50% ownership

ICEpower Management and the Danish private equity fund Industry Development has acquired ICEpower A/S with a 50% / 50% ownership.

This is a fantastic opportunity to the benefit of our customers, says CEO of ICEpower A/S, Keld Lindegaard Andersen. On June 1st, 2012 we changed the name from Bang & Olufsen ICEpower A/S to CEpower A/S since that day we have been preparing for a future in which we would leave the Bang & Olufsen Group in order to become independent. We are now as independent as we can possible become. At the same time, we have the best possible partner one can find in Denmark amongst private equity partners.

Industry Udvikling is all about developing small and medium-sized industry companies with a long-term scope.Industri Udvikling was formed in 1994 with the object of setting up a private equity company that was to invest in small and medium-sized Danish manufacturing companies. Industri Udvikling invests primarily in Danish manufacturing companies with sales up to DKK 400 million, with the aim of developing the companies over a number of years. There is no fixed timeframe for how long a company should remain in the ownership of Industri Udvikling.

The goal for the ICEpower management team and Industri Udvikling is to develop ICEpower further and consolidate its position as a leader in class d audio power conversion. ICEpower will continue to provide class D audio solutions to manufacturers of professional and consumer audio products. The ICEpower management team will own 50% of the company and so will Industri Udvikling (50%).


ICEpower is a fast growing, innovation-based sound house specializing in audio power conversion solutions. With market leading clients in Europe, Asia and North America, ICEpower’s brand promise is to deliver the industry’s best audio performance.

ICEpower is merging with Audio Bricks and acquiring Bolecano – September 1st 2016

The 2 Founders of Audio Bricks, and prior Founders of respectively Anaview AB, Patrik Boström and Upcon Technology A/S, Lars Press Petersen will continue their carriers as Chief Technology Officers of ICEpower.

From September 1st, 2016 Patrik Boström holds the position as CTO, Amplification, and Lars Press Petersen holds the position as CTO, Research and SMPS in ICEpower.

THE NEW OWNERS OF ICEPOWER
On May 1st, 2016 Keld Lindegaard Andersen, CEO and Mads Emil Solgaard, VP, Sales & Marketing together with the private equity fund, Industry Development acquired ICEpower A/S from Bang & Olufsen A/S.

All activities in ICEpower and in the Bolecano company and under the Audio Bricks brand will continue as business as usual.This is the best possible news for anybody working together with either ICEpower, Bolecano or the new brand Audio Bricks.
There is only one difference: Together we are so much stronger. ICEpower has some of the best class d and audio acoustic engineers in the world. Adding the expertise of Lars and Patrik, their knowledge and technologies to ICEpower makes our combined team stand out.

ONE OLD IDEA AND SEVERAL NEW
This idea is not new. ICEpower and Anaview were founded at the beginning of this century. Patrik founded Anaview in 2001 in Sweden only two years after ICEpower was founded in Denmark.
We share the same ideas on development of quality sound by technology and combining technologies to reach our goals. Already in the early zeroes we worked together, became friends and discussed how we could join forces. The timing is right for all of us now.
Lars is also an old friend of the house. Lars held the position as Innovation Manager in ICEpower from 2003 to 2007. Welcome home to Lars and Patrik.

“While this merger is an old idea we have several new ideas on how we are going to keep inventing, on how to grow the company and how we are going to co-operate with numerous companies in the industry” CEO Keld Lindegaard Andersen, ICEpower.

ICEpower amplifier solutions are to drive new models of B&W active subwoofers – May 14, 2007

Three new B&W active subwoofers, the ASW608, ASW610, and ASW610XP, are soon to be released to the market. All of them feature ICEpower amplifier modules, which enable supreme power density and efficiency and complement B&W design in achieving the finest sound performance. This is not the first time that B&W, a highly regarded authority in the industry, has selected an ICEpower amplifier module for its product. The collaboration between ICEpower and B&W started in 2004, when B&W chose the ICEpower500A module to be installed into its PV1 subwoofer. Following the growing market demand for home theatre audio systems, B&W has been pursuing development of powerful, yet compact loudspeakers and subwoofers. Class D switching amplifiers, with sound performance significantly improved by ICEpower ® proprietary technologies, came to offer a successful solution to the size vs. power dilemma. The patented COM and MECC technologies, a true technological advantage of ICEpower products, effectively control the subwoofer membrane movements resulting in the very punchy and accurate bass. ICEpower and B&W engineers worked closely together to perfect the sound performance of the subwoofer models.The new B&W subwoofers support universal power supply mains of 100 240V and automatically adjust to the local power supply standard in each country. This feature enables B&W to respond easily and rapidly to changes in specific market demands, as the same product is used worldwide.

Kristian Ougaard, the Director of Product Development at Bang & Olufsen ICEpower, comments: “I admire the level of technical expertise of Bowers & Wilkins in loudspeaker development and the sound quality of their products. They are in the worlds very top ranks in high-end loudspeakers with the supreme sound quality and beautiful design. This expertise of B&W and ICEpowers technological know-how in audio power conversion effectively complement each other”.
