Bowers and Wilkins

In 1966 John Bowers and his lifelong friend, Peter Hayward, founded a manufacturing company, then called B&W Electronics in Worthing.  They agreed from the outset to live modestly and plough any profits back into the business to further research into the quest for the perfect loudspeaker.

During the 2010s, Bowers & Wilkins updated their signature technologies as well as entering new and exciting markets.  Their legendary Diamond tweeter technology was updated and included on even more loudspeakers, while the mobile music fan was addressed with B&W’s first headphone range and Airplay enabled speaker systems.
