Ever since Martin’s founding innovation and cunning are closely connected. Their unique founding took place in Denmark in 1986 when founder Peter Johansen successfully turned a coffee maker into a fog machine. This innovative spirit is still part of the company today. 

However, they do not only specialise in the production of fog machines anymore but also moving heads, scanners, strobes, LED fixtures and controllers. An indicator for the high quality and reliability of their products is also their participation in the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen, the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens and the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. For the latter they were even the main supplier of all lighting equipment and thus also provided the over 1100 lamps at the opening ceremony.
