Cerwin-Vega is a manufacturing company that produces professional audio components, home audio speakers, and car audio components. On December 5, 2011 it was announced that the Stanton Group had been purchased by the famous Gibson Guitar Company. This purchase, and others, spawned the beginning of the Gibson Professional Audio Division. Before then, and as a result of its bankruptcy as a private company, C-V was sold and became part of the Stanton Group, along with Stanton Magnetics and KRK, (a professional audio division focused on quality studio/recording speakers). Cerwin-Vega sells internationally from two main locations; one in Deerfield Beach, FL, and the other location in Brussels, Belgium, while manufacturing their pro products primarily in Malaysia and home products primarily in China.
