History

Sivantos Group has a proud history of entrepreneurship, courage, empathy and the will to help others. It’s the story of adventurous employees, great companies, and helping millions of people live better lives. In fact, dedication to helping improve the daily lives of the hearing impaired has long been a tradition for our company – for more than 130 years.

The roots of today’s Sivantos Group extend to 1878, when a telephone receiver with substantially improved transmission quality was developed by Werner von Siemens. He was the first to notice that people with hearing difficulties needed better transmission quality in order to understand telephone conversations.

In January 2016, Sivantos Group opened the next chapter in their company’s history, introducing its new brand: Signia. Signia stands for hearing innovations that center on the customer’s needs and deliver the highest level of quality and satisfaction.
