From the simple beginnings of building speakers from a rural garage to becoming one of the Nation's largest U.S. manufacturers of high performance car, home, professional and commercial audio products; MiTek Corporation has maintained the vision, leadership, and dedication of Founder and CEO Loyd Ivey.
Ivey began his company in 1971, aptly named Ivey Electronics, and after a merger with American Case Company in 1974 American Acoustic Labs, or AAL, was born. Soon thereafter MiTek Corporation was founded as the umbrella company to a vast assortment of diverse and innovative audio companies. To this day Ivey remains the visionary leader and driving force behind the MiTek family of companies.
1979 ushered in the MiTek acquisition Matrecs, a manufacturer of mobile audio products which became known as MTX Audio in 1983. As the founding company under the MiTek umbrella, MTX Audio offers the broadest selection of consumer products in the MiTek family. With a sharp focus on the marketplace and ever-changing industry needs, MTX delivers classic, high performance car, home, and professional audio products geared toward audio enthusiasts of all ages and listening preferences.
Since its creation, MTX has been the innovator of some of the now standard audio ideas, including inventing the first mobile audio enclosure in 1984. Ivey continued to expand MiTek in 1983 through development and acquisitions including Magnum, creator of the first-ever vented/sealed hybrid enclosures, allowing the customer to choose how their music should sound.
Fueled by the growth of the car audio industry, Ivey expanded his manufacturing ability and in 1989 established MTX in Phoenix, Arizona, the epicenter of car audio technology and manufacturing. Acquired in 1990, Oaktron- located in Monroe, WI- provides custom and mil spec speaker systems and components. The acquisition of Oaktron, as stated by Ivey, "was a natural extension of the MiTek business, since Oaktron had been manufacturing the coolest speakers since 1950."
In 1996, MiTek acquired Xtant, an innovative manufacturer of mobile audio products for serious audiophiles with discriminating taste. Its highly evolved mobile audio products and technologies showcase unique performance features in sophisticated packages. 1999 welcomed many additions to the MiTek Family. First, Coustic, a value brand of dynamic mobile audio products for all consumers, manufactures cool and exciting car audio products for people on the move. Next, DCM Loudspeakers, legendary manufacturer of timeless audiophileresidential speakers, extending MiTek's reach into the home audio loudspeaker systems.
