Welcome to the 18th Edition of
ELECTROSONIC WORLD, the biennial
publication which provides a record of
some of the many aspects of Electrosonic.
This 2015 edition arrives a year after the
company celebrated its 50th anniversary, an

“the way things were” in both a technology
and a business sense. Phenomenal progress
in technology has been accompanied by a
complete change in how businesses operate.
While Electrosonic can be rightly proud of past
achievements, it is not in its nature to stand
still. This issue reports on the opening of a

demand, demonstrating the company’s policy
of “following the customer” in the sense of
being where the customer needs Electrosonic’s
services. What is less obvious is work being
done to help ensure that the company is
able to “lead the customer” in respect of
technology application. Such work includes, but
is not limited to, a big emphasis on business

development and the expansion of the
apprentice program.
This issue of ELECTROSONIC WORLD carries
several stories with a “collaboration” theme,
and others that illustrate the application of
new technologies, such as high resolution LED
displays. While Electrosonic keeps abreast with
such progress, it remains committed to ensuring
that customers are equipped with the most
appropriate technology for any project.
March 3, 2014, was the 50th
anniversary of the founding of
Electrosonic. To mark the occasion,
and to preserve something of the
history of the company over a period
when the AV “industry” came of age,
a book “Electrosonic – 50 years on the Audio-Visual Front
Line” was published by the company.
