About Us

Home/About Us

Welcome to Pro-Mix

If it seems like we care a little bit more than the “other guys”, its because we have spent over 30 years providing services to the entertainment industry in the Chicago Suburbs. We spent nearly 20 of those years selling audio and lighting equipment, offering advice and providing subcontracted event services anonymously for other companies. Because our reputation IS their reputation, Pro-Mix delivers every time! Today, we can offer the same attention to detail and unrelenting quality to end-users directly. Whether we are offering equipment rentals, providing audio-visual services or entertaining guests at a party, Pro-Mix is dedicated to perfection!
