Gemini Turntables

Founded in 1974, Gemini Sound Products manufacturers both audio and video equipment for professionals and home audio aficionados. Per recent statistic, company sales averaged $60 million per year.

Gemini was a branch of Gemini Speaker Systems, an innovative company that opened in 1969 and manufactured quality speakers. After Gemini branched out to include DJ equipment, they developed a decent following.

Within a decade, Gemini attended, and was well received, the National Association of Music Merchants tradeshow. This helped bring their products to the limelight. However, unlike their competition, the father-son team running Gemini kept a close eye on the company’s growth and carefully monitored sales. This is certain to have helped the company succeed.

In 1997, they needed to expand when they acquired a theatrical lighting company. They opened a new plant in Carteret, New Jersey in a building three-times larger than it’s former manufacturing plant. Sales were not as impressive as they first thought, so they downsized a few years later moving into their new, smaller headquarters in Edison, New Jersey.
