ETC is a global leader in the manufacture of lighting fixtures, controls, and rigging systems for entertainment, architectural, and commercial spaces.
Founded in Madison, Wisconsin, in 1975, ETC began with the passionate belief that there was a better way to make a lighting control console. A small group of university students challenged themselves by creating a microprocessor-based console that out-performed other boards on the market at the time. That entrepreneurial spirit grew into an award-winning business that employs over 1200 people in 14 corporate offices around the world.
Since its beginning, ETC has earned an industry reputation for unmatched technical and customer service. In addition to our own renowned service department offering 24-hour phone support, ETC has over 300 authorized service centers throughout the world, staffed by hundreds of certified technicians.
ETC counts thousands of customers worldwide including theaters, restaurants, schools, performing arts centers, television studios, houses of worship, casinos, museums, theme parks, sporting arenas, and opera houses.
In 2015, ETC enacted an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) giving one-third of the company to its employees. This solidifies ETC’s future as a privately owned company.
