Memnon is a provider of services to digitise, restore, preserve and enable access to historical recordings, and boasts clients around the world. The company operates facilities in Belgium, the US, Israel and Australia.
The acquisition of Memnon expands the reach of ES Broadcast’s existing media services, provided primarily to a UK client base by subsidiary LMH, into the global marketplace. It also augments the company’s offering to its clients – including systems integration, equipment sales and hire – allowing it to provide services across the entire broadcast and production spectrum.
Current Memnon CEO Baku Morikuni is to step down from his role as part of the transition. Michel Merten, who originally founded Memnon, will assume management of the company’s EMEA and APAC operation, while Andrew Dapuzzo continues to steer the business in the US. LMH, which will maintain its focus on delivering media services to UK clients, is led by managing director Gary Edwards, who will help to oversee the integration of the two businesses.
ES Broadcast currently operate across 10 locations in the UK, US and Spain and works with some of the world’s most prestigious sports bodies, broadcasters, service providers, institutions, and historic and national library archives.
