Shure, a global audio manufacturer, and Ingram Micro have formed a new strategic relationship aimed at enhancing Unified Communications (UC) solutions across the UK, Germany, Spain, and Poland.
The alliance will focus on distributing Shure’s award-winning Stem Ecosystem, addressing the burgeoning demand for high-quality audio in meeting, training, and classroom spaces. The Stem Ecosystem is ideal for situations that require straightforward, deployable audio solutions for daily conferencing needs. Now, Ingram Micro resellers will be able to enjoy a consistent and effective audio experience with Shure’s Stem Ecosystem devices.
“Developing a closer business relationship with IT channels is a key priority for Shure,” said Bob Farahar, senior market development manager, UC and IT Channels, Western Europe at Shure. “Ingram Micro not only has a strong relationship in the IT sector but also deep expertise and knowledge. We believe Stem Ecosystem will be a valuable addition to Ingram Micro’s portfolio while helping Shure reach new markets.”

As workspaces evolve and the need for high-quality, reliable audio becomes increasingly important, Shure’s cutting-edge technology will offer a total solution for our reseller customers.”
Ingram Micro’s influential role in IT channels offers Shure an invaluable opportunity for broader market penetration. Additionally, Ingram Micro’s established affiliations with leading Unified Communications vendors such as Microsoft, Cisco, Poly, and Logitech pave the way for more cohesive and wide-ranging solutions.
