A Worldwide Audio Market Orchestrated from the City of Aachen
Since a month or two, Elektor has its head office in the German city of Aachen. But that is beside the point. More important is the fact that 12 years ago a worldwide audio specialist was born in this beautiful city that once, around 800 AD, could be considered the first capital of Europe. Loetronic has become a worldwide operating company, yet with only a handful of people working in a 19th century industrial building just outside the city centre. What is the key to its success? Maybe the city itself has something to do with it.
