Our company was founded in January 2019 with a drive to introduce technology, not yet seen in the audio industry. We committed ourselves to power, performance, advanced connectivity, and bold, compelling design. The inspiration behind this bold, new startup originated with our Founder and CEO, Blake Augsburger. After being so deeply involved in the professional audio and integrator community for over a decade, it became clear that there was a desire for something more. There was a need in our market for a new company that understands the way business is done today. Motivated to merge pro audio with new and innovative technologies, Blake shared his ideas with several former industry engineers and executives and was met with overwhelmingly positive feedback. Not long after, they joined together in South Bend, Indiana – a famous cradle of amplifier innovation – and LEA was created. Since then, LEA Professional has rapidly moved from startup to a major industry player. The core of the business lies in merging IoT technology with pro audio amplifiers while delivering Amazon-like transactional experiences for dealers and customers. While others in our industry are making phone calls, filling out paperwork, waiting for follow up calls, and feeling bogged down by legacy processes – LEA is providing fast online transactions, instant order confirmation and tracking, 24 hour access to view and manage order and account information and industry-changing technology that can help integrators create monthly recurring revenue models with their customers. We’re not changing the way business is done in our industry, we’re just doing business the way the rest of the world has become used to.
