Video Mount Products Celebrates Silver Anniversary
Since 1994, VMP has provided mounting solutions for the security, commercial, residential and professional audio/video markets.
STEVENSVILLE, Md. — Video Mount Products (VMP), based here, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2019.
“It’s amazing to think of all the technologies that have come and gone and the up and down economies since 1994,” says VMP President Keith Fulmer, a 33-year industry veteran who joined the company in 1996. “Twenty-five years ago when big and boxy tube televisions were all the rage, VMP quickly became a favorite for mounting these bulky CRT’s onto walls and from the ceilings of bars, restaurants, gyms, and other commercial venues.”
In that time, Fulmer continues, VMP has evolved along with an ever expanding A/V industry into a leading supplier of flat panel mounting solutions, “from installations in educational, institutional and religious applications to lodging, sports venues, residential, health care and restaurants.”
VMP began as an OEM project to provide mounts for a handful of Maryland electronic distributors whose customers were handling multiple TV installations in small venues, according to a press release.
The company’s portfolio began with a product offering of just six items and has evolved into an industry leader now offering nearly 200 SKUs to installation professionals across every facet of the A/V, communications and security industries, the release states.
“While we began strictly offering TV mounts for CRTs, we now provide an extensive line that includes mounts for flat panels and projectors as well as equipment racks and cabinets for data and A/V installs,” Fulmer adds. “Additionally, we cater to the needs of our wireless and broadband customers with an array of satellite and antenna mounting products.”
In 1996 when Fulmer was a principal of Keller & Associates, a manufacturers’ representative for VMP in the New York/New Jersey metro area, the founder of VMP hired him to spearhead the company’s growth and market development. In 2005, Fulmer purchased all of the company’s outstanding stock and became the sole owner.
Prior to joining VMP, Fulmer was owner of manufacturers’ representative Concepts Unlimited, and executive vice president and partner for manufacturers representative Keller & Associates.
“VMP products have been engineered for and installed with confidence in thousands of A/V, communications, and security applications throughout the world,” Fulmer says. “We wouldn’t be celebrating our 25th anniversary without our customers, and that’s why we place such a high emphasis on our customer service.”
