Shure Incorporated is celebrating 96 years of operation. To commemorate the occasion, the company is planning a series of events and product releases over the next 12 months.

In 1925, S.N. Shure started the audio company in downtown Chicago, Ill., selling radio parts kits. Since then, it has begun offering a diverse portfolio of products, including wired and wireless microphones, personal and professional listening products, and conferencing and meeting solutions.

Shure products are now sold in more than 120 countries, and through the decades, they have been used by such luminaries as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Elvis Presley, Pope Francis, Nelson Mandela, The Beatles and every United States President since Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Throughout the anniversary, Shure will celebrate key milestones throughout the company’s history. It will also look to the future.

Over the past 12 months, the company has expanded its systems integration business with the acquisition of Stem Audio and the expansion of networked audio ecosystems for companies, educational institutions, governments and others to conduct quality virtual meetings. It also increased the frequency of free online training sessions from the Shure Audio Institute to provide audio professionals with the latest tools and information.

“While our 95th year provided several challenges as it relates to the pandemic, we continued with our superior product innovation and customer support,” said Christine Schyvinck, Shure president and CEO. “Our founder, S.N. Shure, would be proud of how our Associates banded together to persevere during these difficult times — positioning our Company for a 96th year of global success.”
