Major US distribution deal signed for Bury St Edmunds-based Echo Barrier.
A Suffolk-based market leader in acoustic solutions has announced a three-year transatlantic partnership which will see their award-winning acoustic barriers become more readily available across North and Central America.
Echo Barrier, whose head office is in Bury St Edmunds, has signed a three-year deal with Multiquip, a diverse manufacturer and supplier of industrial products and solutions, allowing wider distribution of their acoustic products across the United States, Canada and Mexico.

As a leading manufacturer of construction equipment, we are excited to take steps to reduce noise related to construction projects and temporary power generation and provide an effective solution for contractors, rental companies, cities and municipalities for noise mitigation.”
He added: “Our partnership with Echo Barrier reflects both companies’ commitment to better daily life and the environment we have to work in or be affected by, while providing high quality products with proven history and performance in the field of portable noise mitigation.”
Echo Barrier launched its first innovative noise reduction barrier into the market in 2010 to be a cost effective and accessible tool to help construction, rail and events companies and Local Authorities reduce the impact of works noise on local communities.
Gregg Murfin, head of corporate business development at Echo Barrier USA said: “By joining forces through with a trusted, leading supplier, we ensure best-in-class noise mitigation solutions are widely available and that we are better servicing clientele who need these products to improve their environments.”
