Polysonics was founded over 50 years ago as a firm dedicated to providing the very best acoustic solutions possible to a wide range of clients. The vision then was simple - “Be the best.”
Having formed this team of acoustics and technology experts ensures our customers get the best designers coming up with the very best solutions possible - regardless of the size or scopes included in the project. Our ability to offer expert design services has increased dramatically over the last 50 years. What has not changed, however, is our commitment to excellence, our quality focus, our dedicated customer service, and our desire to provide you the very best in acoustic and technology design solutions.
Polysonics’ mission is simply to be the best. We understand that being the best is more than a statement; it is a commitment, a way of life that we must choose to live each day. The test of a company’s values and mission can not be conducted in writing, but must be lived out by what we continually achieve. Our mission statement serves as a guide, a compass continually guiding our vision for the future; To remind us daily of what is the best.
Polysonics will continually strive to provide services that are relevant to the needs and concerns of each of our clients. We will continually meet or exceed our clients’ expectations and needs by providing the highest level of design services, engineering, documentation and communication for every project and every client - every time, on time.
