The Foundation of MAGNUM
MAGNUM was founded by Erik and Linda Magnuson in 1980, at a time when few specialized entertainment production companies existed in Atlanta.
Originally known as MAGNUM Lighting & Production, Inc., the company was built by Erik and Linda in their Candler Park home. Concentrating solely in lighting and sound production during those early days, their team served the convention, corporate and special events industries as well as local theatres, schools, and dance companies. Since day one, the focus of MAGNUM has been its customer’s satisfaction.
MAGNUM was built on the principles of honesty, integrity, hard work and an impeccable attention to detail – values that continue to shine through in all that we do. Even in its humble beginnings, MAGNUM Lighting & Production, Inc. was determined to be at the forefront of the lighting systems and installations industry.
Since that time, MAGNUM has developed into five self-supporting, interdependent divisions: Product Sales, Rental, Event Production, Systems Installation and Repair – growing in size and in service to become an accomplished industry leader.
Throughout 35 years of growth, MAGNUM has remained a family-owned and operated business. Since the passing of Erik and Linda, their children Todd and Ingrid have carried on the values upon which the company was founded. This is why when working with MAGNUM you can expect the genuine care and face-to-face service of a small company along with the resources, experience and capabilities of an established industry leader.
Since our inception, MAGNUM has been committed to giving back to the local Atlanta community.
