About Magnum PA Ltd
Magnum PA Ltd began as a sole trader called Magnum Sound South Pembs in 2002. Magnum’s core team noticed a distinct lack of professional live production companies in the South-West Wales area. We were a small family team determined to bring real quality to technical productions. Our first large scale production was the 50th anniversary celebration for Pembroke Male Voice Choir, where we provided technical services.
Magnum PA Ltd today, provides technical production services across our home region of South Wales as well as across the UK and Europe. Our bases in Cardiff and Pembrokeshire allow us to service the M4 corridor and a significant amount of our work is in London. Magnum stock and service a huge range of equipment in our Cardiff warehouse. We are also committed to delivering a local service to Pembrokeshire, our home county and the location of our Head Office.
We work hard to ensure our clients return time and time again. There are a significant number of clients that have been with us since the beginning. In the past few years, other production companies have begun to notice the quality of our work and request our expertise to deliver specialist technical services for their own clients including large scale sound system design, live video streaming as well as custom installations.
