Michael Enterprise Audio & Visual founder, Stephen Michael, first discovered his passion for electronics when he was just 4 years old and accidentally cut off the power to his house.
Growing up, Stephen would always be taking things apart to see how they work and sometimes even managed to put them back together!
With years of practice under his belt, Stephen got his first professional gig repairing an air-conditioner unit in a women’s clothing store in Kitchener, Ontario. Then a short time later while still in high school, he was hired by an electrician and began wiring apartment buildings and condominiums.
While in college in 1974, Stephen founded Michael Enterprise, and worked out of his home in Barrie, Ontario. He began rewiring houses and installing new electrical services.
In 1977 Michael Enterprise expanded its services and started working on communications towers and installing 2-way radio systems for police, fire departments and TV Broadcasters.
In 1979, Stephen moved Michael Enterprise into its first commercial shop on Ellen St. in Barrie, just behind the Dairy Queen.
While continuing to expand the business, Stephen took over the Roxy Theatre in downtown Barrie in 1984. There he set up one of the largest audio visual showrooms north of Toronto. The Roxy hosted many concerts, fashion shows, and teen dances during the 80’s.
Then in 1988, Michael Enterprise expanded again, moving into a larger facility on Anne St.
In 1995, Michael Enterprise moved to its current location at 59 Bell Farm Rd.
