Genelec Celebrates 40th Anniversary

News Image
Genelec has launched a year of celebrations to mark their 40th anniversary, including a party, 40th anniversary book, a limited edition monitor, and a high-profile campaign with online music broadcast Boiler Room.

Throughout the year Genelec will recognise the contribution of the wider Genelec Family, from friends, partners and users to the many employees, past and present, who have played roles in the company's story. Alongside a Summer birthday party, competitions will take place throughout 2018, including the opportunity to win a trip to the Genelec factory in Iisalmi, Finland, and a composition contest in association with Boiler Room, details of which will be announced in the Spring.

Genelec's social media channels will feature key moments from the company's history, and a #Genelec40th hashtag campaign will enable members of the Genelec Family worldwide to share their memories and experiences. During the year Genelec will also release videos dedicated to its past, present and future, while a 40th anniversary book will offer new insights into the company's first four decades.

Siamäk Naghian, Managing Director, Genelec, said: "It's a remarkable achievement to have reached our 40th anniversary through such an incredible chain of innovations, and to remain as devoted to the pursuit of perfect sound as we were at the very beginning. This year of celebration is for everyone in the Genelec Family who has made it possible for us to be here – the legions of Genelec users around the world, our distributors and dealers, members of the press, our deeply valued employees and of course our founder, Ilpo, whose philosophy continues to guide us as we look forward to our next 40 years."

Genelec was founded in 1978 by Ilpo Martikainen and Topi Partanen.
