MEET THE SALES TEAM

TMB is a value-added distributor, originally founded nearly 40 years ago to provide specialized technology developed for the rapidly growing concert lighting industry.

Offering a family of truly exceptional, innovative products, TMB now serves professional customers worldwide, from locations in Los Angeles, London, New York, Toronto, Beijing, and Riga. While now supplying many markets and industries, we continue to honor and value our tradition of providing high quality, leading-edge technology with full, committed service and support.
