It's Martin Professional's 25th Anniversary year and it's time to celebrate! To mark the company's quarter of a century in the entertainment lighting industry, Martin will be celebrating with a variety of special activities in 2012, 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 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,” stated President and CEO Christian Engsted, who has been at the helm of Martin Professional since 2005.

“Our relentless focus on developing and launching new break-through products to the market - like the already released MAC Auraâ„¢ as well as our MAC Viperâ„¢, 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.”
