We benefit from a heritage of innovation…

Our history / We are in the process of re-inventing ourselves because, in several ways, we are a fresh new company. As the Sivantos Group, we were founded as recently as 2015. But beyond this re-birth, we have been helping people with hearing loss for 140 years.

Our roots date back to 1878, when Werner von Siemens developed a telephone receiver with substantially improved transmission quality.

What have we been doing since? You can learn more by visiting our history chapter, here in the “About us” section.

… and continued world’s firsts

Our reach / Today, Sivantos employs approx. 6,000 people in more than 25 countries – from AU (Australia) to ZA (South Africa). Our International Markets department serves customers in another 95 countries; that means you can buy our hearing aids practically anywhere. And in many parts of the world we have already built up market-leading positions.

We offer hearing aids branded Signia, Audio Service, Rexton and A&M. Accessories, fitting software, smartphone apps and diagnostics workflow, as well as service solutions also make up our portfolio. If you are interested in our brands you’ll find more information by visiting the “brands” chapter.

Our employees take pride in their work because they help to changes lives. Here, an Operations employee at his station in Poland.

Inventions / Development has long been, and will continue to be, our top priority. That’s why we have achieved so many “world’s firsts” in the hearing aid history, including the first hearing aid featuring a wireless system. Since becoming an independent company, we have increased investments in R&D so that our developers can focus on the best part: shaping the future.

Discovering new opportunities, going where nobody has gone before, that’s where we have fun.

You might also be interested to know where our group’s name comes from:

The first two letters “S-I” represent our Siemens heritage. “Vantos” comes from the English word “vantage”, which means “a position that offers a strategic advantage, the commanding view”. This is precisely the position we’re aiming for, and intend to assume again in the industry: to be at the very top.
