Company History:

As far as can be established Strode Sound's roots started in the 1960’s in Frome, Somerset, with one of the town’s electrical retailers providing outside sound systems for fetes and shows.

After a short time, the outside sound business was purchased by a local entrepreneur, who started to build the client base.

After a couple of years, ownership passed on to what was soon to become The Derek James Organisation. Under this ownership the business expanded and spread its area of operations to more than five counties.

In 1982 the business was purchased by the present owner, Mr Chris Stacey, working from home in the first four years before moving to premises in Midsomer Norton in March 1986.

During the next eighteen years the business was expanded to include two way radio sales and service as well as sound system hire, sales and installation.

In 2003, it became apparent that the original premises were now too small for the continuing expansion. 2004 saw the move to our current site on the Westfield Trading Estate being twice the size of the previous premises.
