At PK Sound, people are number one, and these people own the company. PK is owned by all of us, the people working day to day, who truly have a passion for what our company is about and what we create. Only with this as our core philosophy can we truly give our customers - who are our partners - the exceptional products and service to build long lasting, mutually beneficial business relationships.
PK is a fast-growing, owner-operated loudspeaker manufacturer proudly located in Calgary, Alberta Canada, servicing the world. We pride ourselves on being a fresh alternative to the status quo, providing creative and innovative solutions in an ever-evolving market place. It is one thing to hear music. It is another to experience it. PK Sound was born out of the marriage of acoustical engineering and human emotion, in facilitation of the connection between artist and fan. We measure performance as much in the reaction of a devoted fan as in the read-out of a lab instrument. In all we do wherever the PK logo appears there can be no compromise and no end in our desire to achieve new standards of performance, better ways of collaboration, and new avenues of innovation to advance industry technology for all.
