After searching for appropriate warehouse space for several years, a growing company that offers integrated audio-visual systems recently moved into 1,916 square feet of industrial space at 50 Dynamic Drive in Scarborough.

Stone Mountain Sound leased the space from M&R Holdings LLC. Jon Rizzo and Sasha Bogdanovics of the Boulos Co. arranged the transaction.

In order to reflect is services beyond sound, the company is in the midst of rebranding to Stone Mountain Systems.

Noah Cole and Pat O’Donnell founded Stone Mountain in South Portland about five years ago. The business provides design, installation, service and training for integrated audio-visual systems at venues such as theaters, churches, restaurants, conference rooms and school auditoriums.

Clients have included the Children’s Museum & Theater of Maine in Portland, Waldo Theatre in Waldoboro, Woodfords Congregational Church in Portland and Farnsworth Art Museum in Rockland. 

Typical jobs include design in consultation with the client, said Cole.

“It can last a month or even a year or more for some of the larger organizations,” he said. “We figure out what the client wants and design around that. So when the installation happens, we have a clear idea of what we’re doing.”

An example of an installation might be theatrical lighting and a sound system with microphones and speakers. There might be streaming, projection or even video walls.

“We offer quite a few products,” Cole said. “It’s a customized experience.”

The warehouse is for storage and light assembly. 

“Most of what we do happens in event spaces in Maine and New Hampshire,” said Cole.

The industrial space wasn’t easy to come by.

“We had been looking for a warehouse for four years probably,” said Cole. “I think this is an endangered species in the Portland area.”
