Bowers and Wilkins is a British company that produces audio equipment. It was founded in 1966 by John Bowers at Worthing, England. Research and development has been a core activity within B&W, stimulated and exercised by its founder. The company offers a full range of speakers and home audio systems including the Nautilus speakers and Panorama home theatre systems.

 

B&W was started as a radio and electronics shop in Worthing after the World War II by Bowers and Roy Wilkins. In 1966, Bowers started a separate business-B&W Loudspeakers Ltd. and was no longer involved with the shop itself.  The 1967 P1 was the first commercial speaker from B&W. In 1968, Audioscript in the Netherlands became the first international distributor appointed. Soon after, in 1970, the ionovac-tweeter equipped, P2 speakers were produced and licensed by Sony. 1972 saw the introduction of the DM2, a three unit system, comprising an 8 inch bass/mid-range speaker rear loaded with an acoustic line, a Celestion HF1300 tweeter and a super tweeter. B&W received the Queen’s Award for Export in 1973. After a tenfold increase in export since 1973, the second Queen's Award for Export was awarded in 1978. Sadly, in December 1987, Bowers died. In the year 1990, Silver Signature loudspeaker was launched to commemorate the company’s 25th anniversary. 2007 saw the introduction of the 'Zeppelin' iPod speaker system. In 2010, the 800 Series Diamond D2 line, the P5 Mobile Hi-Fi on-ear headphones and the MM-1 computer speakers were released. June 2011 saw the launch of the C5 earphones and in May 2012 Bowers & Wilkins launched their P3 headphones at Abbey Road Studios, London. In May 2016, it was announced that EVA Automation, based in California had acquired Bowers & Wilkins for an undisclosed amount.

 

Hence, since its establishment, the company’s earnings have been invested in new product development, and will continue to be in the future.
