The History of Blumenhofer Acoustics
Blumenhofer, a German company founded in 1977, specializes in the development and manufacturing of high-quality acoustic systems. Situated in a nature park near Munich, Germany, the company's research center and production base are nestled amidst serene surroundings.
Thomas Blumenhofer, the main owner and founder of the company, has played a significant role in earning appreciation and admiration for Blumenhofer speakers among music enthusiasts. For over 35 years, he has been dedicated to providing his customers with the best possible sound experience. Thomas oversees the development, production, and final quality control, drawing upon his extensive expertise in professional audio across various settings, including concerts, discos, concert halls, public installations, as well as hi-fi and home solutions.
Blumenhofer's commitment to excellence is reflected in their meticulous selection of materials and components for their acoustic systems. With almost 40 years of experience and an unwavering desire for continuous improvement, the company has gained a reputation for producing some of the world's finest and most respected speakers.
Blumenhofer made its mark in 2004 when they introduced the first modern speaker systems, including models such as the FS 1 and CS 1 from the Geniun line. These models held a prominent position in the market for an extended period before being discontinued in 2014.
In 2001, Andrea Vitali joined forces with Thomas Blumenhofer, becoming the second owner of the company. Andrea's background as a business developer and sales director in a large engineering company brought valuable expertise to the table. His responsibilities include business development, product strategy, and marketing, both domestically and internationally. Through ongoing communication with customers, dealers, and distributors, Andrea ensures their input shapes the company's future production plans. Since the end of 2008, Andrea and Thomas have worked closely together to drive the company's success.
