Sanus Systems was founded by Tom Ruhland, Chris Hanson and Ray Settle in the garage of Tom Ruhland. Jim Wohlford was the 4th addition to the company. Chris Hanson named the company as he and Tom Ruhland were in Latin class together in high school. In FACT Jim Wolford, while he DID grow the company into what it has become, never would be mentioned in this article had it not been for the early groundwork, and vision layed out by the ORIGINAL founders.
