Peats (formerly Peats Wholesale) Ltd was established in 1969 by Geoff and Isobel Peat. The Peat family name, synonymous in the audio and electrical business in Ireland, was established by Geoff’s Father William and Mother Brigid with the well-known and regarded retail store ‘Peats’ of Parnell Street in 1934.

That entrepreneurial spirit continues to this day. 

History

Geoff and Isobel struck out together to develop a wholesale business serving Irish re-sellers and their audio accessory needs in 1969. The audio accessory business is where Geoff saw an opportunity…and he was right!

For the next 50 years, this husband-and-wife team developed their wholesale business by securing premium agencies such as JVC, Sennheiser, Shure, Wharfedale, TDK and Ross.  Today this strategy continues, and Peats continues distributing products from key brands from the Audio/Visual and CE industries; Sony, Bose, TP Link, Yamaha, Nextbase, In Focus to name a few.
