It all began with a young Patrick Van de Sande who, at the age of 6, was triggered by a technician that came in and repaired his parent’s television. Watching the technician bringing the broken television back to life left a huge impression on Patrick. He started tinkering with all kinds of devices that he could get his hands on and by the age of 11 he was able to build his first crystal radio receiver.
What started as an interest became a hobby when he set up his own repair shop in the attic of his parents. After his day job he would rush home to start repairing all kinds of electronic installations for his customers. By the age of 26 he had saved enough money to start his own shop and PVS was officially born.
In the early days the PVS shop mostly sold Hi Fi systems and televisions but Patrick began to focus solely on audio devices. PVS started also offering an all-round service, not only the repair and sale of audio systems but also the installation on site of these systems. The shop quickly became well-known because of its technical expertise so the need for a larger building emerged. In 1994 the construction of a new building started giving PVS the necessary space to start distributing several audio brands in Belgium.
Meanwhile Patrick realised his young son, Tom, also shared that same passion for technology. Even before he could properly walk, Tom was already busy with taking his RC toys apart and reassembling them back again adding new features to his existing toys. From that point on it was clear to his parents where his future would be. It was meant to be that Tom would follow into his father's footsteps and soon started helping out in the company.
Due to the fast growth of the company, the demand for new innovative products that were not yet available on the market also rose. This inspired the company in 1992 to start investing time and resources in developing its own brands, AUDAC, PROCAB and CAYMON. From then on, PVS wasn’t just a distributor but also a manufacturer of its own brands of professional audio equipment.
Over the years, PVS assembled a highly specialized team of audiophiles who paved the way to the success of all three brands. It’s a group of creative people with different perspectives and backgrounds but who all share the same dream: improving your audio experience.
But even now, PVS is not standing still, there is continuous hard work to offer innovative solutions to the AV market. At the same time, PVS is committed to environmental care in all of its business activities. From designing the products, to manufacturing and logistics. That’s one of the reasons that many of the products have an energy star label as they are low in power consumption.
The company would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was involved in the company's growth over the past 35 years. We are very much looking forward to the future and all new challenges that comes with it.
