MBF Audiovisual is the outcome of a lifetime of experience.  John R. Hardwick (Principal) has worked in the audio industry in one aspect or another all of his adult life.  During high school, John was the kid who all the teachers called to run the film projector or hook up the PA. 

Spending ten years in the US Navy as an Interior Communications Electrician, learning electronics and getting experience in Radio and Television station maintenance, provided an ideal learning ground. 

Further refinements to John's experience came at Dimensional Communications.  Dimensional's core business is K-12 school infrastructure, as well as telecommunications infrastructure & equipment, and Large Venue, computer-controlled sound systems.

At Proline Industries John provided organization in building their contracting department.  Proline needed to install a computer network and build the infrastructure necessary to support a multi-million dollar contracting and sales company.  The focus of Proline's contracting arm was municipal television and higher education.

Always looking for ways to grow and learn new skills, John took a position with AEI Music in Seattle, WA.  At AEI John directed a group of young engineers teaching the art of AutoCAD and the concepts of audiovisual system design.  AEI Music produced designs for approximately 700 individual projects a month.  System designs varied in complexity from simple retail store foreground music systems to campus-wide digital audio distribution systems. 

His next step was in support of manufacturers like Allen & Heath, Audio Technica, Aviom, BSS Audio, Crown Audio, DBX Professional, Eventide, Fujitsu, IED Audio, JBL Professional, Lexicon, Omnimount, Polycom, Radio Design Labs, Soundcraft and many others at Northshore Marketing. 

In January of 2003 MBF Audiovisual was officially kicked off.  Since that time the company focus has been on supporting other professionals in the construction and contracting industry.  Working behind the scenes to provide manpower and design support.
