PK Sound has announced that it is now fully operational in its newly purchased 50,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing facility at the foot of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, Canada that provides significantly more space for the company’s manufacturing, engineering, R&D, and operations departments that will help in capitalizing on growing demand with shortened lead times for new product deliveries.

“Over the past few years, we’ve grown our company by consistently and strategically investing in our team and infrastructure. Our new facility gives us the capacity to meet our current growth trajectory and realize our ambitious product roadmap over the next 10 years and beyond,” says CEO Jeremy Bridge. “We’ve streamlined operations, considerably augmented our manufacturing capabilities, and expanded our R&D and engineering efforts to continue advancing line source technology through mechanical design and integrated robotics.”

The new facility includes an expanded woodshop, electronics assembly, and warehouse areas that PK Sound states allow it to grow its manufacturing capacity fourfold while enhancing quality standards. It also has the acoustically optimized PK Alliance Centre education and demonstration room; mixed office spaces, labs, and breakout rooms conducive to collaboration across various departments; and staff amenities including a full gym and workout room, music studio, and a sizeable staff lounge overlooking the Rockies.

“This period of rapid growth has seen us expanding our team across virtually every department,” states PK Sound COO Arlen Cormack. “Our new facility combines open-concept labs and workspaces with plenty of office space for a more collaborative and productive environment. We’ve expanded our production capacity and, along with considerable attention to supply chain management, drastically shortened lead times for orders despite the challenges currently facing manufacturers across our industry.”

“In addition to being better poised to address market requirements and efficiently deliver high-performance products to our sales and user network, we’ve allocated the space and resources to create an unparalleled visitor experience,” adds James Oliver, chief strategy officer with PK Sound. “With all departments and disciplines more closely interwoven, guests can experience the full breadth of a high-tech manufacturing environment, from conceptualization through design and development to education and deployment. We’re excited to welcome more of our partners from around the world to our home base in Canada and connect them with the teams and technologies behind the most dynamic live sound solutions in pro audio.”
