Northbook, IL (November 5, 2012)—AmpliVox Sound Systems moved to an expanded headquarters last week, opening its doors with a ribbon cutting attended by Rep. Bob Dold (R-IL) and other community leaders.
Approximately 200 visitors toured the new office and warehouse facility on Anthony Trail in Northbrook, where the sound electronics and presentation furniture company now has 60 percent more space for manufacturing, shipping, and customer service functions.
The move to a larger space was in response to the growth of AmpliVox’s business in the last two years, including the addition of a dozen new products in 2012.
In comments to the group, Dold commended Roth for his company’s success and entrepreneurial spirit. “We’re here to celebrate all that Don and AmpliVox have been able to accomplish, expanding by 60 percent,” said Dold. “We don’t hear those stories very often these days. We see a lot of companies tightening their belts and downsizing because they aren’t sure what tomorrow will bring. So when we find a company that’s expanding, I really want to recognize you for all you’re doing.”
