Company

History

GSM-Multimedia GmbH was founded on 24.06.1994 by Claudia Gangl in Dingolfing. At the beginning we mainly sold Flightcases and Recordbags. Over the past years our assortment has continuously evolved and it now features everything from DJ and Club products up to production and studio equipment.

Since our foundation in 1994 we have assisted end-users from the fields of DJ, club, gastronomy, store construction and TV / broadcast as well as resellers and installation companies. Now, after more than 15 years we can count on a pan-European distribution network and proudly supply nearly all of the famous DJs and most of the professional dealers.
