Our History 

Over five decades on the audiovisual frontline

Established in 1964 in Greenwich Market, London, Electrosonic is a leading audiovisual (AV) & technology services company which has helped deliver some of the most iconic projects in the world for leading brands in business, entertainment and hospitality. 

Electrosonic’s story is complex but in many ways it parallels the history of audiovisual technology, and provides a window into how the industry and its services and products have changed. 

From the start, Electrosonic combined the manufacturing and selling of products with the building of complete engineered systems. Key product categories included electronic lighting control, multi-image slide projection and videowalls. The product and systems portions of the business continued together through 2010 when the products side of the business, which by then represented a small portion of overall revenue, was sold.

Electrosonic has created many impressive and memorable projects over the last 50 plus years all around the world. From innovative projection systems design for a giant projected image at China’s EXPO in 2010 to most recently being a key partner in delivering the largest museum project in the world, the Sheikh Abdullah al Salem Cultural Centre in Kuwait. 

Journey Through Time

Electrosonic has been honoured with the Queen's Award to Industry for Export Achievement and Founder Director, Robert Simpson, was awarded an MBE in the New Year’s 2017 Honours list for services to the UK AV industry.

The Future 

Today's customers respond in a positive way to memorable experiences that utilise digital technologies such as virtual reality and immersive experience, creating ample opportunity across all industries to use technology to revolutionise business and even society. We work at the intersection of technology, architecture (spaces), and storytelling to create lasting experiences.

We are expanding our design and consulting practice providing, master planning and integration expertise for Information Communications Technology (ICT), security and surveillance and acoustics systems. 

We are driven by the challenges that our global customers continually face as we have a profound passion for the journey they are in and the experiential opportunities that integrated technologies can offer. We welcome the opportunities the Top 100 Fortune companies continually provide, and where we can bring imagination to life.

We very much look forward to Electrosonic’s future, supporting the UK’s engineering efforts, bringing new talent onboard and innovation to the forefront of the audiovisual industry.
