About Us

GearSource.com® was brought to life in October of 2002 by industry vet, Marcel Fairbairn. Since that time, GearSource.com® has sold more used production gear than anyone through its unique “Two Sided Marketplace”, meaning a place that is equally connected to its sellers and its buyers. The company’s global user-base is made up of professional production/rental companies, resellers and end-users from all segments of live production and entertainment technology. On both sides, users are both buyers and sellers via this unique and dynamic platform.

By growing GearSource.com®, the company has delivered on its promise to clean up the process of re-marketing Production gear while creating a safe and efficient Global Marketplace, catering exclusively to professional entertainment gear markets. GearSource has also become a 100% remote-based company, giving us access to a global pool of talent and allowing us to build a quality team to assist our Buyers and Sellers.

GearSource has once again begun the huge project of rebuilding our platform into a single global marketplace, with strong payment management, tax compliance and advanced security and compliance measures.
