Founded in 1975, Panamax has become the country’s preeminent designer and manufacturer of electronic and electrical protection, filtration and control products. In 2006 Panamax acquired Furman Sound, another power management company. they now still operate as separate brands, both doing power management, but for different purposes.
Ever since the acquisition, the two brands coexist to cover all fields of power management for home and commercial properties. Panamax brings to the table years of industrial and commercial experience; Furman, makers of Blue Bolt, bring to the table years or experience in power management for the music industry. However, even before the merger, both companies began to expand into power management for home theaters and the merger of the companies only improved the products that both companies were developing.
