Quarterly Customs: A Conversation with Premier Mounts Founder and CEO, Len Dozier

 

With an expansive team of industry-leaders, Premier Mounts has a unique opportunity to turn to any one of our staff for insight into the world of A/V mounts. Here, we sat down with Premier Mounts founder and CEO, Len Dozier, for a three-part series on his experience in the mounting industry. Join us at ground zero as he discusses the early days of custom mounts:

 

“In the beginning, almost every mount was custom. When Flat-Panel Display technology first came out, about the only place you would mount a flat-panel was on a wall. Stands hadn’t even been invented, and the products were very prone to breakage. So, consequently, a lot of our custom work started because we were working with manufacturers like Sony, Panasonic, Sharp, Fujitsu, and Hitachi to correct those issues.

We were being asked a lot in those early days to create a solution in partnership with a display manufacturer- in a unique market that they wanted to try to introduce flat-panel sales to. And then things started to establish themselves. Flat-wall mounts, tiling wall mounts; they were pretty much commodities as far as how they mounted. Then we started doing the same thing with ceiling mounts. In the early days we would take our wall mounts, create an adapter and convert them into ceiling mounts. They looked pretty ugly from the back, but they worked. And then about four years ago, our senior design engineer and I created a custom ceiling mount in our ECM series. It's since become a staple of ours, and it’s also now a stock product. A lot of times it would start out that someone would ask us "Can you make something that would do this or that?" We do it, and if its acceptance seems pretty high, and we may go into mass production on it. There you can see the evolution from custom-only to our current combination of custom and stock products..."
