anniversary with a

diverse service offerings.
By Alyssa Borelli
OKLAHOMA'S FIRST full-service
audiovisual solutions provider,
Cory's, has evolved significantly
since its 1953 inception as a storefront
for film projectors and sound
equipment. Expanding to service
theaters and schools, it moved into
custom advanced installations in
the 1960s, establishing a reputation
for trust through reliable relationships.
The '70s saw Cory's capitalize
on Oklahoma City's convention
boom with a large-scale rental
operation. By 1982, Joseph A. Cory,
the founder's son, took over and
added live-event production to
the company's offerings, retaining
many of these clients to this day.
In 2012, cousins Brad Poarch (now
CEO and partner) and John Cory (now
COO and partner) purchased the
family business. Amid a landscape of
large-scale conventions and theatrical
productions, their leadership ignited
an era of substantial growth, fueled
by a relentless pursuit of innovation.

Now in its third-generation ownership,
Poarch and Cory have seen great
change, growth and challenges.
In 2020, Cory's faced an unprecedented
challenge - the COVID-19
pandemic. Events ground to a halt,
revenues plummeted and layoffs
were inevitable. Yet, adversity
sparked ingenuity as the firm swiftly
pivoted toward streaming services
and health-related technology devices.
Not only did Cory's survive, but,
in fact, it emerged stronger, ready to
rebuild. By 2021, the team expanded
with the addition of Britt Gotcher as
a partner, furthering the company's
focus on innovation, enterpriselevel
business and the transformative
value of AV.
Now, in 2024, Cory's celebrates 70
years in business and has rebranded
the company into three distinct
divisions: Cory's Spaces (integrated
AV installations), Cory's Onsite (onsite
technical services) and Cory's
Live (event production and rental).
