Founded in 1978 in Germany, T+A has since established itself as an innovator in the field of audio reproduction by developing and implementing cutting-edge technologies in its products.
T+A is a family-owned business with a long-term approach to its product and marketing strategies. Its philosophy incorporates a love of music with expertise in engineering and physics and aims to push the boundaries of the current state of affairs and offer unique and innovative products to its customers.
The company is in a unique position to take advantage of the latest concepts and discoveries in the field of acoustic science as they have partnered with the TU 9 network (an alliance of nine leading technical universities in Germany) through a sponsorship scheme, which offers students from physics, electrical and information technology faculties an opportunity to intern in their technical department.
T+A’s main factory and headquarters are located in Herford in North Rhine-Westphalia. The company’s core team of fifteen engineers work on its products all the way from conception to production in-house. According to T+A, “We don’t build mass products, we build acoustic treasures, we build heartbeats, goosebumps and enthusiasm.”, a phrase that perfectly encapsulates its goals and ambitions.
T+A hires highly-trained specialists to work in small groups so they can take full control of the manufacturing process, ensuring the highest quality and synergy between each and every component is achieved.
Furthermore, the company demands the highest standards for externally-sourced materials they use, such as steel, aluminium and wood to adhere to their core principle of longevity. Following this principle, their products are designed to stand the test of time, both visually and technically.
This idea has also been extrapolated and applied to the excellent maintenance and service provided on all of the brand’s products. A team of knowledgeable technicians are dedicated to assisting their loyal customers and is able to service any T+A product no matter how old.
