How it all started
Bang & Olufsen’s existence has always been and continues to be based on the initiatives of innovative, tenacious and ambitious people. In short, people who believe that to create is to live.
It all began on 17 November 1925 with a fully paid-up share capital of DKK 10,000. DKK 4,000 was owned by Peter Bang, DKK 4,000 by Svend Olufsen and DKK 1,000 by each of their fathers. Thus equipped with capital, the two young engineers could embark on an era in Danish electronics history that would prove to be something of an adventure. Together they founded the company that would become internationally renowned for its design icons and exceptional sound and image quality. Today, Bang & Olufsen A/S is known around the world for its exclusive TVs, music systems and speakers – products that combine technological sophistication, emotional appeal and outstanding design.
In addition to home entertainment products, Bang & amp; Olufsen also applies its acoustics and design expertise to the automotive industry, working with leading brands to develop advanced sound systems for various exclusive models.
