Shure Incorporated is celebrating its 96th anniversary this week and is planning a number of product releases and events to honor that milestone over the next 12 months.
S.N. Shure started the audio company in Chicago IL back in 1925, selling radio-parts kits. Since then, the company has come to offer a diverse portfolio of wired and wireless microphones, personal and professional listening products, and conferencing and meeting solutions.
Shure products are now sold in more than 120 countries. Since the company’s inception, its products have been used around the world by luminaries like Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Elvis Presley, Pope Francis, Nelson Mandela, The Beatles and every US President since Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Throughout its 96th anniversary, Shure will celebrate key milestones in its company history. These include Rose Shure being named Chairman of the Board, Sandy LaMantia becoming VP of Engineering, numerous product releases and acknowledgments, and much more. In addition to honoring the past, the company is also looking toward its future.
Over the past 12 months, Shure has expanded its systems integration business with the acquisition of Stem Audio and the expansion of networked audio ecosystems for companies, educational institutions, governments and others to conduct quality virtual meetings. The company also released a number of new microphones and increased the frequency of free online training sessions from the Shure Audio Institute to provide audio professionals with the latest tools and information.
“While our 95th year provided several challenges as it relates to the pandemic, we continued with our superior product innovation and customer support,” said Christine Schyvinck, Shure president and CEO. “Our founder, S.N. Shure, would be proud of how our associates banded together to persevere during these difficult times — positioning our company for a 96th year of global success.”
