Premier Mounts has been on the cutting edge of mounting technologies since our founding in 1977. Many innovations, new products and partnerships later, we’re entering our 44th year with excitement for the future and gratitude for our path to the present. Each year has brought success, yet certain moments stand out above the rest.

Premier Mounts began under the name of “Progressive Marketing Products” and initially acted as a pro AV manufacturing rep for several brands. In the same year as our founding, particular excitement occurred surrounding an encounter with the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. Jobs purchased the Sony monitors that were used on his Apple 1 design from Len Dozier, our founder, and he was able to hand deliver the product that would go on to change the world’s use and perspective of technology.

In 1985, Premier Mounts became what it is known as today with the selection of the new name for the brand. In the same year, our first mounts were built. The following year brought continued success as our long-term partnership with Sony was established. This partnership saw the creation of the SONY PMM-722 mount for Sony projectors which retailed for $300, a price that remained unchanged for 14 years.

The 90s brought new growth and innovation with expanded operations in a new 34,000 square foot building. Designs like the swingout mount were introduced and we went global with new offerings of worldwide shipping. Our first website also rolled out, further connecting us with potential clients and partners internationally.

Leading up to our 30th anniversary, we teamed up with the Wynn Las Vegas to deliver a custom-made mount, marking the beginning of a fruitful partnership. From there, we worked on every Wynn property across the globe. Along the way we were also recognized for our outstanding products as we won awards like “electronic house product of the year” for our in-wall boxes. 2008 marked over 1,000 products created and continued partnerships with casinos like the MGM, Bellagio and Cosmopolitan.

In the last decade alone, our partnerships have expanded into new spaces from airports to sporting arenas, amusement parks and restaurants. Our work at the Daytona International Speedway even gained recognition as it was given the Commercial Integrator award for best integration in a large venue. We’ve also continued to bring home awards for our innovative products like the Digi Award for best new technology innovation- FSXA. Our involvement in the community has also taken a front seat in recent times as we teamed up with CHOC Hospital and even created our own recovery employment program that has transformed over a dozen lives.

Our continued commitment to product innovation in the AV industry, paired with inspiring partnerships, market optimization and community involvement have combined to yield the great results of the past 44 years. Our recent acquisition by Gamber-Johnson, a leading supplier of rugged mobile mounting systems will no doubt create exciting new opportunities for growth.  Moving forward, we are thrilled about the path for Premier Mounts and eager to see what can be accomplished in the future.
