Martin to celebrate 25th birthday3 January 2012
2012 will see Martin Professional having completed 25 years in the entertainment lighting industry, and the company says that it is planning to celebrate the occasion with a variety of special activities, including anniversary events at trade shows throughout the year.
Incorporated in 1987 as a producer of disco lights and fog machines, the Danish-based company has grown over the past 25 years into one of the leading manufacturers of dynamic lighting and video displays. Martin’s MAC line of moving heads alone has sold over 350,000 units and the company’s growing line of LED products is said by Martin to be the fastest selling on the market.
The anniversary is also being marked on the Martin website, as well as Martin Professional’s Facebook page, where industry professionals will find special opportunities to interact and share in Martin’s look back at 25 years in the lighting industry.
“2012 marks our 25th anniversary year yet it is also remarkable in the fact that it marks the year in which our LED-based products total more than 50% of our sales, emphasizing our technological leadership in the entertainment lighting industry,” said President and CEO Christian Engsted. “Our relentless focus on developing and launching new break-through products to the market – like the already released MAC Aura as well as our MAC Viper, set for launch this spring – has set new standards for moving heads in the mid-segment and will continue to preserve Martin as the leading brand in the industry.”
