Our History

Owners Jeff Hudson & Troy Lephart

Pinnacle Systems was established in 2001. The owners Jeff & Troy have been in A/V systems since the early 1980’s. When they started in the Audio/Video industry they worked together at “Top in Sound” based in Anderson, Indiana. Early in their career, they traveled the United States integrating 70 to 80 churches per year, along with school gym and auditorium sound systems.

In the early 1990’s both Jeff & Troy moved to Chicago, Illinois, and worked for Bob Ancha Owner of Ancha Electronics, which is now AVI/SPL. To this day Pinnacle Systems has been blessed to work alongside the top 3 largest AV integrators in the US, providing subcontract labor.

Finally, The journey back home! In the mid to late 1990’s Jeff & Troy returned to their hometown and began working with Electrical Systems Company in Indianapolis, Indiana. Jeff went on to work on the new Conseco Fieldhouse built for the Indiana Pacers Basketball team. While Troy was given an assignment working at Indiana University Auditorium in Bloomington Indiana. Then in 2001, they decided to chase their dream. They met at a Burger King in Zionsville, Indiana, and discussed starting their own company.

As stated by Jeff: “We prayed about it for the next couple of weeks. I kept waiting for God to open a door and it never happened, until one day my daughter said to me, Dad- “Don’t be a What-ifer”. I have always preached to my kids about what if I had gone to prom, or tried out for band, the basketball team, and so on. I had all of the confirmation I needed that day. Remember to always chase your dreams and not wait for God to open doors because they will never open. Go through them and he will shut them for you.

To date, Pinnacle Systems has been blessed to be in business for 21 years. During those years we have been able to provide subcontract labor for the Top 3 A/V Integrators in the country: AVI/SPL, Whitlock Systems, and AVI Systems. Beginning January 2018, Pinnacle Systems has officially begun Sales, Engineering, design, and Integration of all Audio, Video, Stage lighting, and Security systems. In 2013 Troy and Jeff were fortunate enough to buy the old Top In Sound Building where it all started for them.

Client Testimonials

“Great company. They’ve done work for our church multiple times now and they’ve done a great job every time. The quote was competitive and the work was excellent. Couldn’t recommend them more highly.”

If anyone is ever looking for a contractor for audio/video projects, this is the place to go.  The quality of their installation work is some of the best I have seen being in this business. When it came time for turnover, there were next to no wiring mistakes / bad connections. As with any project of this size, SPL was delayed time after time by General Contractor delays. Pinnacle always came through when the going got tough. They would work 18 hour days to keep systems on schedule. I cannot say enough good things about Pinnacle Systems.

We needed a camera system for our new building.  Pinnacle Systems came in gave us a quote and got everything installed professionally. Even a year after installation they still help us when we have questions. This is a family run company you can trust.
