Gibson to merge with Danish audio group

The Bluegrass Blog reports that the Gibson Guitar Corp. (incorporating Epiphone, Dobro, Flatiron, and many other brand names) expects to complete by the end of February 2008 a deal for a merger with the Danish TC Group, which manufactures professional audio equipment.

Anders Fauerskov, chief executive officer of TC Group, will remain based in Denmark, and serve as chief operating officer of the new combined Gibson Guitar Corp. It is expected that Gibson will retain the Nashville headquarters and factory, and will take on more staff.
