Does Harmon Industries still own JBL? (http://www.harmanpro.com/)

Then again, that Harman page shows the JBL logo as one of their many brands ...

Harmon, Harman, Pro, Industries, International, who cares? A friend of mine a few days ago read to me a press release from 2010 that stated the chap who owned U.S. Music Corporation sold his company to a Canadian conglomerate, where it also stated the Canadian company also owned JBL. I remember reading, and printing out a blurb in 2010 about JBL going up for sale for $8 Billion, but the deal fell through due to some flaw in the paperwork. I also heard that Harman Industries is actually owned by an even bigger ass corporation.

I know the internet is rife with erroneous information, but if a Canadian company owns JBL it would stand to reason there would have been a press release about the acquisition.

We all know that history, which does not answer my question. Who owns JBL if not Harman Industries? My guess, is the press release my friend read to me was B.S.

If "we all know that history ..." why would you even bother to ask such a question - with no proof of link or any kind of reference to tie it to.

I agree - sounds like B.S. ...

Maybe it's you that needs to find the link to be happy................let me see if I get this............my friend told me a story and I seem to remember reading about it too.............then I lost my copy of the story so now I'll come to the Lansing Heritage forum and talk smart ass to people because they have no knowledge of said story, the story my friend told me about and that I lost (forgot).................yeah, that sound about right?

Here's how to handle it friend:
JBL is a subsidiary of a publicly traded company
If you really need verification as to who holds what, just log into your Schwab account (or whoever you trade with) and you can read all the records until you feel satisfied and find what you're looking for
All interest holders will be listed in great detail as required by Law, as well as any and all offers

Do you know how "Google" works, or have it? If you do, here's a tip; it works a whole lot better if you spell the name of the object of your interest correctly for starters. Using your own language:
https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=U.S.+Music+Corporation+sold+to+a+Can adian

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=Jam+Industries+acquires+US+Music

And last but not least; after 5 or more years they're no longer "rumors", rather, history................that, or an "urban legend"

The Canadian company that owns U.S. Music Corporation is JAM Industries of Baie-D'Urfe, Quebec.

Here's their number, give them a call: 514-457-2555

I believe some confusion may exist because one division of JAM, Erikson Consumer, is a distributor for Harman Industries lines in Canada, or so they claim. See pages 11 and 12: http://seekoften.com/hr_intranet/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/JAM-orientation-New.pdf


Erikson Consumer Home distributes a select group of audio products including home theater,mobile audio/video, and custom products, which can be found in national and regional CEchains, department stores, furniture and appliance chains, and specialized CI andindependents. Products distributed include home theater receivers, speakers, CD and DVDplayers, custom electronics. Renowned brands include Harman/Kardon, JBL, Infinity, Arcam,Cerwin Vega, Mark Levinson, Lexicon, Revel, Soundcast, Nuvo Technologies and other

Thank you very much. All I did was ask a simple question, and expected nothing more than a civil answer. This Wagner character is two for two today. He volleyed another insult to a new member on another thread of which he/she was called out on. It appears there are some folks who by virtue of their membership on this blog feel it allows them license to berate, insult, and condescend to other members with impunity.

Yes. They're the Canadian distributor for JBL Consumer and Harman/Kardon stuff. I see H/K items in the stores but not much JBL Consumer out there.

It's hard to read a person's tone and manner of speech from writing in a forum environment. Since most here know that JBL is part of Harman it makes it seem there is more to your question "Does Harmon Industries still own JBL". The simple polite answer would be "yes" and would end the thread right there. But it could just as well invite a response such as "since this fact is easily determined by a quick look at the JBL website, why do you ask?" You may have answered as below...


Harmon, Harman, Pro, Industries, International, who cares? A friend of mine a few days ago read to me a press release from 2010 that stated the chap who owned U.S. Music Corporation sold his company to a Canadian conglomerate, where it also stated the Canadian company also owned JBL.

I also heard that Harman Industries is actually owned by an even bigger ass corporation.

I know the internet is rife with erroneous information, but if a Canadian company owns JBL it would stand to reason there would have been a press release about the acquisition.

Maybe the thread could have seemed a little more inviting that way. I know this response may still seem condescending but I am not sure how to word it less so.

Harman was trying to move the company to private ownership in 2007 (not 2010). That deal fell through.

My, my, my, it seems to me that everyone here got so cranky over the (U.S.) holiday weekend...

One thing that would help alleviate confusion in the future would be if everyone here makes sure they spell "Harman" correctly, since there is another company out there named "Harmon."

I'm usually cranky over Memorial Day (usually about Vet treatment) and defer from replying to the posts that obviously require snarky responses.

My favorite misspellings of Harman are .... Harming ..or of HK ,,, Karman Hardon
(seen in many ads) :(

Yeah, I especially enjoy the ones addressed to "everyone" rather than the OP who got the ball rolling; should have been a post with "quote"

I addressed my comment to "everyone" because I meant "everyone." I have seen "Harman" spelled "Harmon" by several people on this forum, not just the OP. Probably just typos, but as this thread shows, they interfere with effective communication.
