Oticon Hearing Aids

The History of Oticon

Founded in 1904 by Hans Demant, whose wife was hearing impaired, Oticon currently employs more than 3000 people worldwide and specialises in the design and manufacture of hearing aids for both adults and children. Oticon hearing solutions are benefiting people in more than 100 countries around the world.

After the death of Hans Demant in 1910, his son William Demant took over. In 1957, William and his wife Ida Emilie donated the Demant family’s shares in the company to the Oticon Foundation. The Oticon Foundation’s general aim is charity with particular emphasis on helping people with a hearing impairment.
