Welcome to Magnetic Storm

Magnetic Storm was established in 1981 and since then, has grown into a multi-faceted Audio-Visual and Events company. Having started in equipment hiring, the company now specialises in the hire, sale and installation of sound, lighting and audio-visual equipment; as well as event management services.

Service excellence is core to the vision of the company, so Magnetic Storm is constantly striving to improve on quality and set a level of service competing with that of national and international industry standards – while focusing effort on the Eastern Cape and Cape Town.

Magnetic Storm is committed to the vision of transformation through BBBEE including efforts at ownership, management and employment equity levels. Current standings are at a Level 2 status. Social involvement and investment is of equal importance and the company makes on-going efforts through involvement with local theatre which makes equipment available at no or discounted costs.

With over 30 years of experience, Magnetic Storm has been able to develop a Full Service Portfolio, offering a "one-stop-shop” where all conferencing, corporate and private functions, concert, festival, staging and production needs can be met.

Our vision is to lead the way through creative solutions by providing expertise in events, sales, installations and technical requirements. From installing a small PA system in a boardroom to creating the launch of the century, all things are possible at Magnetic Storm.
