Production & Procurement
Where Sennheiser manufactures
In order to satisfy the needs and demands of our various markets we manufacture our products across a total of four Sennheiser facilities worldwide: alongside the company headquarters in Wedemark we also have a second German production plant in Burgdorf and two further facilities in Tullamore, Republic of Ireland, and in Albuquerque, USA. Our technical progress is ensured by a large research and development team in Germany and further R&D offices in California and Singapore.
In our Wennebostel plant we manufacture wired Sennheiser microphones, Neumann microphones, headsets, and microphone and headphone capsules. A modern production centre provides optimal conditions for microphone manufacture; at its core is a Class 100 cleanroom measuring 350 square metres, specifically designed for the manufacture of condenser microphone capsules.
Over the next few years the production capacities in Wennebostel will be expanded; a new two-storey technology and production facility will provide a total production area of around 5000 square metres. From the end of 2009, approximately 200 employees who are currently employed at the Burgdorf plant will manufacture Sennheiser wireless technology and microphones at this facility; new technologies will also be developed and tested here. The merger of the two plants in Wennebostel and the ensuing improvements in operational procedures will increase levels of efficiency still further.
Until this move takes place in 2009, the majority of the Sennheiser RF production will continue to be done in Sennheiser’s second German production plant in Burgdorf, where the automatic printing of circuit boards and the assembly of electronic equipment takes place.
The manufacture of Sennheiser headphones is concentrated in Tullamore, Ireland. The classic wired headphones are assembled here, as are cordless headphones and stethoset receivers for consumer electronics and audiology applications.
The Albuquerque plant in the American state of New Mexico, like the German Burgdorf facility, produces Sennheiser wireless technology. Further manufacturing activities include circuit boards for electronic devices and RF wireless headphones for the US market.
