Phonak Hearing Aids

Phonak hearing aids first appeared on the market in the year 1947 under the name Ag fur Elektroakustik. The company started off in Zurich and it was basically started by a Belgian and French group of investors. As time passed the company went through many ownership changes. The first one was seen in 1965 when all of the company’s shares were purchased by Ernst Rihs. When he died in 1980 the shares ended up in the property of his sons. This lead to the current state of Phonak hearing aids, as a company that managed to establish itself as one of the most important players in the market.

In 1989 we saw the first ever Phonak marketing company that appeared in USA. Thanks to this transatlantic expansion the companies managed to become a global leader in the world hearing aid development industry. Just 2 years later we saw the appearance of Murten Phonak Communications together with the appearance of the well known Hearing Computer. Even today the company is constantly growing and manages to offer really good devices for people that are faced with hearing loss problems. There is no doctor that specializes in hearing loss that is not recommending their gadgets for patients.
