Marshall Amps was taken over earlier this year by Swedish speaker company Zound, becoming ‘the Marshall Group’ in the process. Now new CEO Jeremy De Maillard has hinted at plans to expand the iconic guitar amp builder’s UK manufacturing operations.

De Maillard has been CEO at Zound since 2020 and has a history of majorly expanding the revenues of iconic brands in the fashion/sports worlds, including Vans, Adidas and North Face.
