Company HistoryII.gif (2589 bytes)
Sound Bridge was formed on January 1st, 1994.  SB began with six entry-level products targeted at the MI Market.  Simultaneously the parent company of SB, Surplus Technology Group, Inc. was flourishing under the direction of President I. Christopher Cole.  As a result of the tremendous growth in the computer industry STG had to become the primary focus of Chris' energies for a season causing SB to be set aside for almost three years.

In August 1996 Chris refocused his attention on his first love, Sound Bridge.  He renamed the company  Sound Bridge Acoustic Labs and began working diligently on the company's rebirth.  Prior to this time Sound Bridge had not been actively involved in Research and Development.  In August of 1996 Chris hired the needed expertise to complete the R&D on SBAL's first product line - the series 3000.  SBAL attended its first trade show and introduced its first eleven products at the winter NAMM show in 1997.  Based on an exceptional market reaction, Chris realized that SBAL was an extremely viable product line.  He began investing in further R&D. 

To facilitate production and development SBAL purchased a CNC router. This brought SBAL into state of the art speaker manufacturing technology.  With further investment, research, and computer aided tools SBAL began adding new product lines at an incredibly rapid pace.  SBAL currently has over forty products and is continuing to develop new products on a monthly basis. 

SBAL seeks to be as vertically integrated as is possible by manufacturing its own metal components [including grilles and jack plates], and maintaining all wood production, covering processes, and final assembly in-house.  Sound Bridge Acoustic Labs is a a division of Surplus Technology Group Incorporated - a multi-million dollar computer and parts liquidator, which is owned and operated by president  I. Christopher Cole.
