Alcons Audio Celebrates 20th Anniversary At ISE

In October 2022, Alcons Audio celebrated its 20th anniversary. In these twenty years, the Dutch company has grown into one of Europe’s leading developers and manufacturers of professional sound systems, with offices in the Netherlands, Germany, and the United States of America and a dedicated worldwide Alcons dealer network. 

How it Began
It all started in 2002 when former sales & marketing director Tom Back founded the Dutch company active in the development and manufacturing of professional sound systems for quality-conscious clients in the studio, screening-room, residential, cinema, House of Worship, performing arts theatre, auditoria, A/V rental, installation and touring industry. 

Co-founder and shareholder Philip “Dr. Phil” de Haan, senior R&D engineer, initiator of multiple patents, and father of today’s high-output pro-ribbon technology became responsible for the R&D department. 

Maurice Laarhoven joined the ranks as the third shareholder and is responsible for the financial department. 

Being a “new kid on the block”, with a completely new product and technologies, the company wanted to position itself in the top-end of the market between brands that had been in existence for 20 to 35 years.  

20 years Later
Tom: 'We’re a forward-thinking company, looking ahead instead of looking back; However, 20 years is a milestone that deserves a moment to look back and reflect. At the coming ISE, we will not only share our future but also our history with our relations and visitors.“
