Starkey was the Brand of the Month for June 2008:
This month we take a look at a very interesting hearing aids manufacturer Starkey. Starkey is the world’s largest maker of hearing aids and has arguably done more for people with hearing loss and their families than any other company.
My guess is that this is a difficult argument to make since they make hearing aids for profit, and I am sure there are many non-profit companies working in the trenches that have done amazing work for those affected by hearing loss.
Nevertheless, Starkey is a large company truly striving to make great products for those who suffer from hearing loss.
Starkey operates over thirty-five facilities among twenty-four different countries. This is a truly global company. On their website, they have an address in Minnesota as their primary mailing list so I assume they are a Midwest company.
Starkey has been building and researching hearing aids for over forty years now. Starkey has gone beyond hearing aids in that they also develop products for listening to music as well as mobile communication.
Starkey are true audio experts and have therefore expanded into many product types. Starkey does however remain primarily a company built around hearing aids. Forty years in the making, twenty four countries served, Starkey is a giant in the industry.
If you or a family member is looking for a hearing aids you should give Starkey hearing aids a look.
