High Wycombe, UK – January 2021. Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Martin Audio is intent on turning 2021 into a year-long celebration of its 50th anniversary.
The company—founded by Australian Dave Martin in London’s Covent Garden, back in 1971—has consistently flourished despite the twists and turns of the last five decades.
The Martin Audio story is a triumph for British manufacturing, innovation and sustainability with an engineering development path dating back to the very foundations of the touring industry.
Dom Harter, Managing Director, remarked, “While we are forever mindful that COVID restrictions are still firmly in place, this is a landmark that should be celebrated in style”.
To commemorate the auspicious occasion, Martin Audio has produced a new coffee table book, detailing its illustrious history and filled with eye-catching photography. This is available now online and in print from February onwards. A celebratory video is also available online to enjoy.
2021 is also expected to be a prolific year for the company, with many product and software developments in the pipeline to continue the company’s legacy. Dom Harter added, “There have been so many manufacturing milestones at Martin Audio and we want to keep that momentum going. 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.
