Solotech Acquires Morris Light & Sound

– Morris Light & Sound and Solotech
Nashville-based Morris Light & Sound will soon be acquired by Solotech the companies announced today. The acquisition also encompasses the InteRise systems integration division of MLS.
Industry legend Dale Morris founded Morris Light & Sound 30 years ago for his work with the band Alabama. The Morris brand will be preserved with the addition of “A Solotech Company,” though a company representative declined to specify if Morris himself would remain in a leadership role for the company.

“The Morris Light & Sound and InteRise brands will be strong additions to the Solotech family, perfectly complementing our corporate goals and expanding our capabilities as well as our footprint in the United States,” Martin Tremblay, President and CEO of Solotech, said in a statement. “With this acquisition, the increased reach of Solotech as a leader in audiovisual and entertainment technology will reinforce our positioning as an industry innovator.”

Solotech – which has worked with the likes of Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney and The Rolling Stones – was founded 40 years ago and today has 15 locations in North America and the U.K.

“We are excited to have the Morris brands acquired by Solotech, a highly respected company in the industry,” Zack Morris, COO of Morris Enterprises said in a statement. “Our company cultures and values such as collaboration and exceptional performance complement each other, and we’re confident our clients will continue to receive an elevated experience.”
