Born in 1979 in Saint-Etienne in France, this year Focal celebrates its 40th anniversary. This milestone will be marked with a variety of celebrations by the French brand. Focal will shortly be announcing some special “40 year” products.

From Local Manufacturer To Global Brand

Focal’s first speaker driver manufacturing workshop was set up within a precision mechanics company in Saint-Etienne, France, in 1979. Forty years on, still in Saint-Etienne, Focal is extremely proud with what it has achieved and how it has expanded its industrial sites, now home to around 250 employees working for their CEO Christophe Sicaud.

Four Decades Of Innovation

With speaker driver and high-fidelity loudspeaker development at its core, Focal has always routinely invested in acoustic research. At Focal, innovation applies as much to its technologies as it does to the tools it uses. The brand closely oversees every step in the creation of its Made in France products, from the development process through to its manufacturing techniques. Thanks to the research of its engineers, into cones and speaker drivers especially, between design and materials, the brand has built an impressive catalogue of patent-protected technologies.

A Focal “40 Year” Collection

To mark its anniversary, the brand intends to continue its mission and its passion, as well as to commemorate its history. As such, this coming May, Focal will unveil a range of products specially developed for its 40th birthday at Munich’s High-End Exhibition.
