History

With strong roots, ready for the future

What began as a small carpenter's workshop over 200 years ago has matured over the years and grown into an international company.
We are proud of a large number of significant milestones and look forward to those ahead. We have a tradition of the future. We are firmly rooted in an internationally emerging market, we know where we come from and where we want to go.
Whether technological progress, spatial expansion or change management - our comfort zone is further development.

Since the turn of the millennium, the importance of room acoustics in the construction industry has steadily increased. The demand for high-quality acoustic products is growing all over the world.
With the founding of akustikplus a company has emerged that takes exactly this need.
As a pioneer and inventor in the field of acoustically effective products, we can look back on many years of experience and pioneering developments.
