NEXO Geo S Series line array has been spec'd for numerous system installs.

In addition to marking its 30th year in the pro audio market, NEXO (nexo-sa.com) also celebrated its first year of transition to becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Yamaha Corporation Japan.

Since opening its doors in 1979 by Eric Vincenot and Michael Johnson, NEXO has been spec'd in both the touring and install markets, including its first install (1984) at the Maison de la Culture in Grenoble in southern France. In the live performance area, NEXO has been a name on riders since the debut of the TS system in 1991, and subsequent introductions of the Alpha line (1996) and GEO Series (2001).

In 2007, after 27 years at its original Roissy location, the company moved into new headquarters, a wholly owned campus capable of housing the entire manufacturing resource, located 30 minutes north of Paris. The new site allows Yamaha and NEXO to implement an automated production line that reduces overall manufacturing time.
