Don Roth acquired AmpliVox, Perma Power in 1995. PermaPower was founded by Norm Ackerman in 1952 and introduced the AmpliVox line of portable PA systems in the 1960s. The company also introduced one of the first residential radio-controlled garage door openers, supplying Craftsman garage door openers to Sears. In the late 1970s, the company added power outlet strips, surge suppressors, power conditioners and uninterruptible power systems (UPS) for computers.

Prior to owning PermaPower, Don Roth was regional vice-president for Xerox and executive vice-president of Apeco and Numeridex Cad/Cam systems.
