About Us

Our mission is to guarantee your satisfaction with our audio-visual rental equipment as well as our products and technical services.  Nothing more, nothing less.  As the person whose name is on the door, please accept my personal commitment to achieving this goal. – Fred Gault, Founder, May 1983

Gault & Associates, Inc. offers a vast array of audio-visual equipment and technical services to meet all of your rental and purchasing needs. We represent world-class manufacturers and their A/V related products for sale and/or installation. Whether it’s an event for 5 or 50 at your facility or a large conference for 1000s at a convention or conference center, our 33 years of service with groups of every size guarantees your satisfaction.

Our 24/7 policy; twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week delivery, pickup and setup is the type of service our clients appreciate from our team of experienced technicians. We are always eager to visit customers who have unusual needs for installing projectors, sound systems, screens, etc. A turnkey price makes the project easier to approve since everything is included. Whether it’s rental equipment you need, or the purchase of an entire system for your church, school, office, or boardroom


In the summer of 1983, when Gault & Associates, Inc. opened its doors, we supplied the Chattanooga area primarily with marketing, public relations and multi-image (multiple slide projectors) program services. We produced multi-projector extravaganzas for Hospital Corporation of America (HCA), Coca-Cola, Shell Oil, International Association of Business Communicators (IABC), American Red Cross, Pi Beta Phi, Georgia Power and hundreds of other clients. We produced and managed presentations for the World’s Fairs in Knoxville, TN and New Orleans, LA.


Along the way, we found that no one in our region was supplying a full range of audio-visual equipment for rental to corporate, institutional and non-profit clients. So we began to add equipment and services to meet this need.

Gault & Associates, Inc. now has the largest inventory of audio-visual equipment serving East Tennessee, Northern Georgia and Northeast Alabama. We serve not only Chattanooga, but also Nashville, Knoxville, TN as well as all the surrounding communities. We served for 12 years as the Chattanooga Convention Center’s audio-visual vendor. We served 10 years as the exclusive audio-visual vendor for the Knoxville Hyatt and the Knoxville Marriott. We continue to serve the Chattanooga Choo Choo, and Embassy Suites Knoxville West hotels  as their exclusive audio-visual vendor.


As the rental business grew, we began to respond to the need of our clients’ to purchase top quality audio-visual equipment. We don’t send out sales people because frankly the limited margins we utilize won’t allow it. So when you visit our sales page, you’ll only find companies that Gault & Associates, Inc. believes are the best at what they sell. We don’t want to sell equipment to a customer that we do not completely believe in. We will give you the best price. Nothing more, nothing less. Try us.


But the most important aspect of our goals to supply guaranteed satisfaction is our people. Our caring relationships with our customers results in happy customers who return over and over again. Please check our Better Business Bureau (BBB) link to find that we are Accredited, Rated A+ and Complaint-Free for over almost 3 decades.  The point we want to make is: we want you to get what you or your organization needs, when it’s needed. Let me know how we’re doing.
