Bowers & Wilkins to become more autonomous

| UW

The British loudspeaker manufacturer now has a management independent of EVA Automation.

Almost four years ago, the long-established British company Bowers & Wilkins was taken over by a two-year-old US start-up called "EVA Automation". After all, B&W was able to benefit from the partnership with the company, which specialises in multi-room systems, in the development of their streaming loudspeakers and noise cancelling headphones. Nevertheless, the loudspeaker manufacturer is now freeing itself from the dependence of its young mother: the two EVA managers Gideon Yu and Greg Lee will no longer be responsible for B&W as managing directors. Instead, David Duggins has been appointed sole and independent managing director while Geoff Edwards will take over responsibility for day-to-day operations. They will continue to work with EVA Automation when it is mutually beneficial, B&W says. Further, several exciting new product launches in the coming months were announced. The company's headquarters, research and development departments and premium manufacturing will remain in the UK.
