Bluewater was founded in 1985 by two brothers: Tom Schoeneberger & Paul Rose. Initially named “BlueWater Visual Services,” the company operated out of the garage at Paul’s family home on Brookside Drive in Southfield, MI. At the time, Bluewater provided simple AV equipment rental — namely TVs on carts.
Rapidly evolving in response to changes in technology and the demands of customers, Bluewater quickly grew to become one of the most trusted event staging and AV integrators
in the country. From TVs and VCRs on carts in the ’80s, to high-end projection systems and LED video walls in the ’90s, to the experiential elements of the 2000s, Bluewater has always pushed the boundaries of new technology and maintained a focus on excellence. Today, Bluewater continues to push boundaries and pursue excellence standing behind a firm commitment to delivering the flawless execution of each & every project we are involved in. The resulting commitment to excellence is an impressive client roster, including some of the most well known brand names in the world.
