Peerless-AV turns 80 years old
Peerless-AV is turning 80 years old this year, the manufacturer has been producing TV wall mounts since 1965.

“2021 has been another great year for Peerless-AV in terms of achieving record business growth across the globe, as well as increasing the size of our global team and ensuring an uninterrupted, high level of customer service and fulfillment, all during a pandemic,” commented Nick Belcore, exec VP of Peerless-AV. “We’re extremely proud of our accomplishments as a company over the past 80 years and we don’t intend to slow down; in fact, we’re only getting started, with so much to look forward to in collaboration with our channel and OEM partners.”

Peerless-AV first opened its doors in 1941 in Illinois fabricating components for military equipment for WWII. One early innovation was the first known TV wall mount, launched in 1978. The mounting product line was extended to include a range of flat panel trolley and stand products. A manufacturing plant was opened in Latin America in 1995, the Jumbo 2000 mount was launched in 1999 and the Plasma, LCD, and projector mount lines in 2003. 

2009 marked a major development, with the opening of the EMEA HQ. The following year, the company moved to a new facility in Aurora, Chicago, which serves as global HQ. In 2011, the business launched the DS-VW765-LAND Full-Service Video Wall Mount.

After carefully assessing market needs, Peerless-AV expanded its capabilities, and began providing niche technology products such as the HD Flow and PeerAir Wireless AV System in the newly formed Emerging Technology group. Dovetailing on this success, Peerless-AV strategically acquired outdoor TV manufacturer Cill Technologies in 2013, introduced its fully sealed commercial outdoor display line, launched the kiosk division, and delivered the Xtreme Outdoor Soundbar in 2016.

2In 2018, the SEAMLESS dvLED video wall integration programme was born and, in 2020, the EMEA business was awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade.
