Companies are judged by their accomplishments. How has it weathered the economic storms it has faced? What products has it delivered? What kind of impact have they had on the world? How has the company treated its employees? What is it doing for the environment? Where has it succeeded where others have failed? By all these measures, VOXX International is a successful company. Founded in 1965 by John Shalam, who remains the company chairman, VOXX International has grown from a small car stereo company to a major player in cellular telephones, to a consumer electronic company, to a significant acquirer of synergistic businesses.
