Founded in 1975 by Henry Moody, Panamax made its debut the same year the first personal computers became available to the public. The company is now led by President Bill Pollock. Panamax is part of the Home Technology Group of Linear, LLC, a division of Nortek, Inc.
Panamax acquired Furman Sound in 2006, which now operates as a second brand within Panamax. Both brands were founded about thirty years ago, both doing power management but for different purposes. Furman started doing power management for the professional music industry. Panamax started making surge protection products for industrial and commercial customers. Both companies moved into power management for home theater within the past ten years each with their own emphasis and technologies.
