The story of Jamo begins in the Danish fishing village of Glyngøre.The year is 1966, and Preben Jacobsen, a carpenter, decides to start building loud-
speakers in his little henhouse. He has a passion for good craftsmanship and fine sound, and produces superbly designed loudspeakers with the
aid of the latest acoustic technologies. However, he is somewhat less talented at selling so his brother-inlaw, Julius Mortensen, enters the
picture in 1968, bringing with him his export experience, gained in the fishing industry. Jacobsen and Mortensen: Jamo.The stage is set for an adventure to begin.

In the years since then, Jacobsen's little henhouse has grown to become a 30,000 m2 / 300,000 sq.ft state-of-the-art factory while Jamo is now Europe's biggest manufacturer of loudspeakers. At the same time, customer demands have become more individual and challenging.Which is lucky for
us because developing new solutions is a daily source of inspiration in our work. Much has changed, but the soul and the driving force behind Jamo is still the same: we want to develop and build products that make a difference to people’s lives, that connect on an
What is good sound? There’s no simple answer to that question because good sound is a highly subjective
experience. Not only do we respect that fact – we consciously base our work upon it. This is clearly
expressed in the promise that lies at the foundation of our work and our success: Jamo will create sound solutions
that make a difference to the individual. This promise is built into all Jamo’s products. You can hear it in our unrivalled sound quality. And you can see it in the stylish finish that characterises every single detail.

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. That’s why designing loudspeakers is not just a question of selecting the best possible components and materials, but also ensuring that they provide the best solution when combined.

The first step in the construction process is to set up an advanced 3D computer model to provide a foundation for both further design work and the programming of the computer-controlled part of the production process. The actual production environment brings together some of the world’s most advanced robot machines and a team of vastly experienced carpenters who take great pride in their craftsman-
ship. It is no coincidence that Jamo’s headquarters lies in a region that is home to a large part of Denmark’s world renowned furniture production industry. For Jamo, production and quality control are
simply two sides of the same coin all the way from the control of raw materials to the painstaking final inspection of every single finished
loudspeaker. That’s your guarantee that the sound, finish, accessories, packaging – in short, every aspect of a Jamo product – will totally match
