When Jack and Betty Sousley founded Sousley Sound, Inc. in 1968, MUZAK business background music was
their primary focus. Paging, intercom and sound reinforcement systems were natural compliments to the
MUZAK delivery business. The Sousley’s sold the business to Leo & Karen Lee in 1982. Leo and Karen are
actively involved with the day to day operations of the business, Leo as the General Manager and Karen
responsible for Sales and Customer Service.
The deregulation of the telephone companies offered a major opportunity. We expanded into the telephone
industry and installed our first electronic key telephone system in 1980 and began operating as Sousley Sound
& Communications. From there we have diversified into other branches of sound & communications. We now
install whole house and business sound distribution systems and home theatre systems. We also install and
service sound and video systems for sports fields, entertainment and auditorium facilities, churches, schools,
professional offices and clinics.
Video surveillance for both business and home has become a fast growing part of our business. In this day
and age, owners and managers have the need to “keep an eye” on their investments any time of the day or
night and from anywhere in the world. We are now able to do all those things easily.
To this date, we have the following statistics to report:
Over 3000 active customers
