It's an exciting time at Bowers & Wilkins ( ). We've just launched the Formation Suite, the newest and most technologically innovative line of wireless products our development team has ever created. We are setting a new bar in the world of wireless sound, proving that wired fidelity can be achieved wirelessly. This marks a fundamental turn for the company, opening up a long list of new products.
Bowers & Wilkins is an award-winning performance audio company, founded by John Bowers in 1966, that produces quality hi-fi, home theatre, custom install, portable audio, and car audio products, and is in partnership with Volvo, Maserati, BMW, and the legendary recording studio, Abbey Road. Over the years we have earned countless awards (three EISA Awards and the Best of Stereo Net AU/NZ to name a couple) and accolades from the world's leading recording studios and musicians. Our reputation is based on the unwavering pursuit of the best possible sound and unsurpassable listening experience.
Passion and innovation have always been at the core of what we do. Our company was born when John Bowers, a music lover who was dissatisfied with the loudspeakers available to him, began to build his own. One customer was so thrilled with his work she bequeathed John seed money to start what would become the world's most respected audio brand.
Our quest to maintain technological leadership took another step forward in 2016 when we joined forces with Silicon Valley startup EVA Automation, founded by Gideon Yu. Three years ago, we had the vision to take Bowers & Wilkins' 50 years of acoustic history and success and combine it with Silicon Valley automation expertise, creating an amazing user experience that is simple, powerful and incredible to listen to. Under our new CEO, Greg Lee, passion and innovation continue to drive us, and we're extremely excited about building the next generation of intuitive and powerful audio-visual experiences.
