As one of the world’s most iconic audio-visual brands, Bang & Olufsen has been leading the way in design, technology, and innovation for more than 90 years.

why Bang & Olufsen

Build your business on our brand

A BRAND DRIVEN BY PASSION

Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen began a modest production of radios in 1925. Working in the attic of the Olufsen manor house in northwest Denmark, their dream was to create a brand built on innovation, quality, design, and performance.

More than 90 years later, our products are still at the heart of our brand. But our continued success is due to our independent network of retail partners—those who share our passion at more than 700 stores worldwide.

 

YOUR OPPORTUNITY FOR SUCCESS

We believe our products demand an unparalleled customer experience. To stand out in the crowded retail landscape, we look for retail partners who share our dedication to both the product and the customer.

Here are some of the benefits of opening a Bang & Olufsen store:

  • Repeat customers exceed 50% every year
     
  • Return on investment in as little as 2 years 
     
  • A rewarding career both financially and personally
     
  • Ongoing support from a global brand

TESTIMONIALS

Hear what our retail partners are saying

 

 

“I decided to work solely with Bang & Olufsen in 1989, choosing the brand over other premium audio-visual manufacturers...The decision to concentrate on Bang & Olufsen was the right one, the strength of the brand allowing us to quickly grow the business to include another four retail stores, contributing significantly to our longevity.”

– Paul Blake, runs five stores in the UK

“The trick is in having the right staff who can make a sale even bigger simply because they’re good at what they do. The interesting part about giving exceptional service that exceeds expectations is that none of our competitors can afford to deliver service on this level. We have the market to ourselves because others can’t afford to walk the extra mile.”

– Heino Østergaard, former manager and current owner in Denmark
