Sadly, in 1992, at a time of general economic recession and extreme price competition from Far East manufacturers, Hill Audio Ltd went into administration.

The business assets were purchased from the administrator by Millbank, a subsidiary of Atapco

Following an action in the High Court, a Supreme Court order determined that ownership of the Hill Audio name, style and designs remained with Malcolm Hill Associates, the licensor.

 

Although most Hill Audio production was wound down at this time, Malcolm Hill Associates continued (as Malcolm Hill Audio) with the manufacture of the Hill Chameleon, and then to gradually introduce new Hill designs.

 

New generation Hill designs are manufactured by Hill Pro Audio Ltd., York, UK, under license from Malcolm Hill Associates.  www.hillproaudio.co.uk
