Acoustics Consultancy

Matrix Industries Pty Ltd Philip Thornton was established in 1985 by professional engineer Philip Thornton.

The business is a combination of a successful engineering consultancy and a manufacturer of specialised structural acoustic products. With a background in mechanical and structural engineering prior to joining an acoustic consultancy in 1982, the business succeeded instantly with product design awards and a worldwide demand for the range of acoustic products. We are able to combine our research work with over thirty years of practical experience in acoustics to offer our clients consultancy skills that few other consultants can match.
