Chief Manufacturing (Chief Mfg. Co) has been a market leader in racks, mounts, and accessories for displays, projectors, TVs, and a wide variety of other AV components since 1978. Founded by Bob “Chief” Brantly, Chief was founded when Bob introduced the original Roll, Pitch, and Yaw adjustments for projectors, making projector registration easy. Shortly after that, Chief came out with Slide Projector Stackers.
From those humble beginnings, Chief has grown into automated mounts, in-wall mounting solutions, the first-ever seismic-rated wall mounts, and other products, offering total support solutions for presentation systems. Headquartered in Eden Prairie, MN, Chief is now owned by LegrandAV, a leading specialist in electrical and building infrastructures. Other broadcast and Pro AV brands currently owned by Legrand are Da-Lite, Middle Atlantic, Projecta, Sanus, and Vaddio.

Their ConnexSys™ family of mounts is Chief’s latest solution, designed to solve common installation problems and save time. The system allows the ability to level multiple mounts in a single row all at once.
