CAMARILLO, CALIF., September 27, 2021 (MEDIAWIRE) – Orca Design and Manufacturing announced a partnership with School of Fab, the new online collaboration featuring Mark from YouTube channel Car Audio Fabrication, and Bryan Schmitt, owner of Tempe, Ariz.,-based Mobile Solutions. Orca will be the exclusive sponsor of the show’s remaining episodes for 2021, showcasing its GLADEN brand of speakers and amplifiers.

School of Fab is the creation of Mark and Bryan Schmitt, arising from the series of fabrication courses of the same name that will be featured at the upcoming MasterTech Expo, scheduled March 6-9, 2022 at the Mesa Convention Center in Mesa, Ariz. The show covers new tools, time-saving installation and fabrication techniques, and live build demonstrations from the Mobile Solutions tech center.

The full-featured Gladen amplifier line has a solution for every automotive audio enthusiast, with single, dual or four-channel options and power-saving Class D models, as well as highly accurate Class A/B architecture. The specialty amplifiers share prominence with separates, coaxials, subwoofers and vehicle-specific speaker options spread over five distinct lines.

“The Gladen brand has a proud history,” said Nalaka Adikari, ORCA sales director. “It was the brainchild of Henning Gladen, an audio visionary who unfortunately passed away almost five years ago. His unique designs are the bedrock of the company’s precision-engineered products, built by a small but dedicated team in Germany. We are honored to represent Gladen here in the United States and look forward to featuring the brand as part of School of Fab.”
