History

The actual founder of Balance Systems is the Italian entrepreneur Gianni Trionfetti. Since the age of 16, he was strongly motivated in setting up this business on his own account. With this very purpose in mind, he decided to move to Milan, where he spent five years as a working-student and two years as an electronic technician for a company producing balancing machines. In the meantime, he was building hi-fi amplifiers and psychedelic light projectors for fun.

Thanks to the abilities developed during those formative years, with a very low budget and very high level of passion and tenacity, in 1974 he was able to start his own business, using the basement of his home as a workshop. One year later, through the partnership with three skilled friends, he officially set up GT Electronica.

Since that time, the company has shown continuous growth: from a basement workshop to a worldwide presence.
