The Northbrook Chamber of Commerce has named AmpliVox Sound Systems as its Business of the Year for 2016, in recognition of the company’s business success. Don Roth, AmpliVox’s owner CEO, will be presented with the award at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner & Meeting on Monday, February 22, 2016.
In business since the 1950s, AmpliVox designs, manufactures, and markets a diverse array of products used in public speaking, multimedia presentations, education, and public safety. Under Roth’s leadership for the last 20 years, AmpliVox has grown into an established industry leader with revenues exceeding $6 million. AmpliVox’s design team anticipates new technology applications and creates furniture and amplifiers that will work seamlessly today, and adapt for changes tomorrow. By keeping pace with customer needs, the company’s revenue grew by 60 percent over the last five years, compounded.
AmpliVox also plays an active role in the community through its support of a wide variety of non-profits, including Special Olympics Illinois, the North Suburban YMCA, Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, and the Illinois Small Business Development Center, among others. AmpliVox has received national recognition for its Pink Podium Promise cause marketing campaign, which donates versatile podiums and megaphones to breast cancer fundraising events around the country.
“We are very honored to be recognized by the Northbrook Chamber with this award,” noted Roth. “We have deep roots in this community and have the greatest respect for the Chamber’s members. The award validates the hard work and commitment that all our employees deliver everyday.”
The Northbrook Chamber’s Annual Dinner & Meeting will be held from 5:00 to 8:00pm on February 22 at the Renaissance Hotel, 933 Skokie Boulevard in Northbrook.
