Mackie Designs, Inc. was founded in 1988 by Greg Mackie, an ex-Boeing worker who began making pro audio gear and guitar amps in his spare time.
After founding the small line mixer manufacturer TAPCO, and later the home audio processor manufacturer AudioControl, Greg founded Mackie Designs, Inc., designing and manufacturing affordable and versatile compact pro audio mixers. In 2003, company management renamed Mackie Designs, Inc. as LOUD Technologies, Inc. to avoid confusion between the parent company and the Mackie brand.
Mixers have been a tremendous success right from their beginning, forcing Mackie to relocate and expand manufacturing every year in its early years to eventually occupy a 30,000 square-foot factory in 1994 and further expanding to a 90,000 square-foot factory the following year.
They took advantage of the Seattle area's plentiful electronic and engineering subcontractors and utilised automated assembly machines to achieve high productivity and quality with lower overall production costs. By 1996, Mackie was diversifying, adding veteran industry designer Carl Perkins to the team and diversifying into power amps, powered mixers, and active studio monitors.
These days, Mackie create a large range of speakers, monitors, recording gear, mixers, and PA products for the professional market around the world. Store DJ has been promoting and selling Mackie equipment for years and we understand what it is about Mackie that makes customers go ‘WOW’!
