HörTech and Hörzentrum Oldenburg merge to Hörzentrum Oldenburg gGmbH
For years, the companies HörTech gGmbH and Hörzentrum Oldenburg GmbH have worked closely together in the House of Hearing, and in October 2021 they will merge into one company. Both companies can look back on an exciting success story: HörTech gGmbH is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and has developed numerous medical products and successfully completed many research projects.
Hörzentrum Oldenburg is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and is a world leader in the field of evidence-based evaluation studies.
"The fusion will combine the strengths of both companies," explains Sebastian Quirandt, CEO of both companies. "We expect to gain enormous potential by combining the experience from the different areas. Specifically, for example, the knowledge gained from more than 20 years of hearing aid consulting for hearing-impaired people will flow much more strongly into the development of diagnostic procedures."
The new Hörzentrum Oldenburg stands for a unique combination of interdisciplinary, demand-oriented hearing research, customer-oriented services and market-oriented product developments.
Hörzentrum Oldenburg gGmbH is the legal successor to HörTech gGmbH in all respects.
