GRAND RAPIDS — AMI Entertainment Network LLC has acquired a U.K.-based manufacturer of jukeboxes.
The deal for NSM Music Group Ltd. marks the first overseas expansion for the Grand Rapids-based AMI, a provider of digital jukeboxes and other products for the nightclub and bar industry, according to a statement.
NSM, based in Leeds, U.K. and founded in 1951 in Germany, will maintain its independent branding and headquarters. General Manager Martin Agabeg will report to AMI President Mike Maas.
