Our story

The founding of Fortyeight

Fortyeight is a Namur-based company that was founded by Laurent Fortier in 2005. This sound engineer started out as a freelance technician in the events sector after leaving IAD (Louvain-La-Neuve), before finally founding his own company out of a desire to invest in high-quality equipment and provide a bespoke service to his clients.

Today, Fortyeight’s expertise is internationally recognised. Our professional services are requested for all sorts of events and projects in Belgium and abroad.

We are proud to have become a true benchmark in the audiovisual sector, and we work hard every day to maintain the exceptional quality of our services.
