Mediam’s origins date back to the early 1980s, when Włodzimierz Duval – the company’s founder and current president – began manufacturing 0-10V lighting controllers. The company quickly became a major supplier of controllers to the most popular entertainment venues in Krakow. It also began to design and equip the largest clubs in Poland.
Based on the experience gained, Modus was founded in the mid-1990s. It quickly established international business contacts and became a distributor for the Polish market of such companies as STANTON, FAL, JEM, MA-LIGHTING, ACR and then SGM, VESTAX, ORTOFON, ANTARI, LPS.
In 1997, Modus presented its products for the first time at the INTERMEDIA trade fair in Wroclaw and participated in all its subsequent editions.
