Acoustic Enterprises Inc. (AEI) began in 1988, over 30 years ago. Our history is rich with innovation and quality in the acoustical solutions industry.

In the late 80’s, AEI developed the revolutionary green process for “Reskinning” existing acoustic fiberglass ceiling panels. Our patented process was designed to make existing ceilings look brand new again, while improving the quality and extending their life.

AEI also invented the Patented VACU-BOND® process. Our VACU-BOND® process has allowed us to create and patent other innovative products such as the totally encapsulated panel for cleanrooms, computer rooms, and the medical industry where a particulate free environment is required or desired.

More recently, we developed the Dimensional Acoustic Wall Panel. The dimensional panel was created because of a desire in the commercial industry to have a wall panel that not only provides acoustical value in the working environment, but also creates an element of beauty and design.

In 2020, AEI was acquired by Sonus North America. The Sonus investment provides a new level of marketing, sales distribution, production efficiency, and product innovation, while maintaining the high-quality standards Acoustic Enterprises has committed to all these years.

Looking Ahead

We love our future! We have the opportunity to invest in this business, grow organically, and be that supplier in the next five years that our community needs us to be.

Our Team

What is in a name?

We came upon our name through two references. Let's start with the lesser know variation. Sona means “prosperous, fortunate, lucky." Combine that with us and you have Sonus! More people know Sonus is a Latin word that means “noise, sound” or “tone, character, style.” It is also the root word for sonic and sound.

We are in the business of orchestrating noise and sound — creating a better environment for people, be it healthcare waiting area, customer service center, or enjoying a meal with friends and family.

It is important we operate with our authentic personality and voice (tone), values (character). It is only if we do those things that we can consider ourselves successful!

Kevin Simons

Co-Owner and Master of GSD
What value do you relate to the most and why?

Moving forward with intention and speed: I’ve been known my whole career as the master of GSD*. It is more important to begin solving for 80% rather than solving for 100%—it takes too long and costs too much with little to no value. Equally as important: solving the most important challenges first. Our community, employees, and the business itself demands action.

Brock Masterson

Head of Marketing
What value do you relate to the most and why?

Start with customers: The longer I’ve been in marketing the more I am drawn to the concept of putting the customer first in every decision, company-wide. Marketing to me isn’t running Facebook ads and designing sales materials, it’s asking, “how can we be of service to our design and build community” — it’s everything from how we answer the phone, to how we best share our expertise, to how we as employees better support each other.

Hobbies & Interests
  • Anything outside! Hiking, snowboarding, camping, paddle boarding, the list goes on
  • Going to Shows
  • Smoking meat. Yes I have my own BBQ rub (original and sugar free). No you can’t have my recipe. Yes I will send you some if you ask nicely!
