Acoustic Dimensions and Sound Technology Consultants Announce Merger

Publish date:

ADDISON, TX--In 1992, Craig Janssen, Vance Breshears and David Kahn met together to discuss forming a consulting firm that would provide whole systems design thinking to spaces where people gather together to share an experience. David had opened the NY office of Acoustic Dimensions the prior year. Craig and Vance, armed only with this dream of making a difference, proceeded to open the Acoustic Dimensions office in Dallas and the Acoustic Dimensions team was formed.

Acoustic Dimensions’ reputation quickly grew. Early successes included Grand Ole Opry, Wildhorse Saloon and Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, the conversion of the Mark Hellinger Theatre on Broadway in New York City for David Wilkerson’s ministry, The Starlight Theatre in Kansas City, Autzen Stadium at the University of Oregon, and venues at Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Universal Studios in Orlando. During this time, Nicholas Edwards joined the team with his office in Coventry, UK taking the firm international.

In 1995, Breshears and his wife, feeling the pressure of being far away from their families, returned to the San Diego area where Vance started Sound Technology Consultants, providing AV and acoustic design services for worship, education, and entertainment projects.
Both Acoustic Dimensions and Sound Technologies Consultants grew independently over the next fourteen years—occasionally competing, but for the most part focusing in different geographic areas. As each company expanded, core values, work ethic, dedication to excellence, passion for innovation and a strong desire to serve client’s needs remained common threads.

In 2008, a conversation over coffee led Janssen and Breshears to consider the possibility of teaming again. After all, both organizations shared nearly identical values and were independently successful. A blending of talents and skills between the two groups could be extremely successful. Technology could also help facilitate real-time collaboration in a way that wasn’t possible back in 1995.

As the conversation continued over the next several months, the expanded team seemed more and more viable. The advantages were undeniable: efficiencies of scale, shared resources, an expanded pool of talent, greater geographical reach… Perhaps most importantly, there was a common vision for the future—one based on innovation.

And so, in May 2009 Acoustic Dimensions expands its geographic base across the entire US with a dynamic California office that has some very familiar faces.
