Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2021, Martin Audio looks back over its key milestones and advances over the years.
Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the company is intent on turning 2021 into a year-long celebration. “While we are forever mindful that COVID restrictions are still firmly in place, this is a landmark that should be celebrated in style,” said Dom Harter, managing director.
Martin Audio was founded by Australian Dave Martin in London’s Covent Garden, in 1971. The company described its story as a triumph for British manufacturing, innovation and sustainability, with an engineering development path dating back to the very foundations of the touring industry.
To commemorate the auspicious occasion, Martin Audio has also produced a new coffee table book detailing its history. This is available now online and in print from February 2021.
The year is also expected to be a prolific one for the company, with many product and software developments in the pipeline.
“There have been so many manufacturing milestones at Martin Audio and we want to keep that momentum going,” said Harter. “We fervently hope that it won’t be long before we are able to celebrate all of these, face to face with our many partners, customers and friends around the globe.”
Subject to restrictions, provisional plans will be to host a grand party in September to tie in with the company’s series of Open Days, to which all international partners will be invited.
