Siemens Hearing Aids
Siemens Hearing Aids was purchased by a private equity firm and renamed Sivantos, Inc., in 2015. Sivantos re-branded their Siemens Hearing Solutions division as “Signia Hearing Aids“. In addition to the hearing aid brands of Signia or Siemens, they also market their hearing aids under the brand names of Rexton, A&M, and Audio Service. The Sivantos Group is one of the largest and most well-respected hearing aid manufacturers in the world. Sivantos produces 1/4 of all hearing aids sold globally.
The successful merger between these two leading hearing aid companies created a strong player in the hearing aid industry with combined revenues of more than 2.2 billion dollars, and employs over 10,000 employees. WS Audiology enjoys one of the strongest R&D teams in the industry. WS Audiology is driven by a passion to improve the quality of life for more than 700 million people with hearing needs. Together, the two pioneers have a combined experience of more than 170 years and will redefine the competitive landscape in the more than 125 countries they are present in.
