Deluxe Acquires German Dubbing Studio CSC – Deadline

Deluxe Media has acquired German dubbing company Creative Sound Conception Studio (CSC), which will be rebranded as Deluxe Germany and expand its facilities for existing and new customers in the growing space.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Deluxe provides localization content production and distribution services to studios and distributors worldwide.

Based in Hamburg, CSC, founded in 1989, is a leading dubbing studio in the country with around 85 clients. This is an in-demand business as content is increasingly produced locally and distributed globally in multiple languages.

The deal gives Deluxe “an expanded footprint and capacity to meet growing market demand,” said Chris Reynolds, executive vice president and general manager of global localization and fulfillment for the company. It said it will continue to expand its owned-and-operated footprint organically and through acquisitions.

Deluxe currently has dubbing studios in Los Angeles, Paris, Madrid and Barcelona. He has made seven acquisitions since being acquired by Platinum Equity from Tom Gores in 2020.

In June, Deluxe and film services company Motion Picture Solutions entered into a joint venture after Deluxe acquired 50% of Dutch film delivery company Gofilex.

Previously, it acquired Sony NMS and Sundog Media Toolkit as it focused on cloud automation and systems innovation.

The company also recently appointed former Netflix Korea executive Samantha Kim as General Manager, Business Development, APAC.
