A company founded on care
In 1904, Hans Demant, founded the company, today known as Demant. The year after, he went to London to get a hearing aid for his hearing-impaired wife Camilla. Their son William eventually took over the company and in 1957, he donated the shares in the company to William Demant Foundation – the main shareholder in Demant A/S today.
Today, the Demant Group is a market leader within hearing health and operates in hearing devices, hearing implants, diagnostic instruments and intelligent audio solutions.
The main headquarters of Demant is located in Denmark. Listed on the Nasdaq Copenhagen stock exchange as one of the 25 most traded shares in terms of free floated market capitalisation, also known as the C25 index, Demant is the parent company behind the commercial successes of such world-renowned brands as Oticon, Bernafon, Sonic, Audika, Oticon Medical, MAICO, Interacoustics, Amplivox, Grason-Stadler, MedRx and Sennheiser Communications. William Demant Invest A/S, a company wholly owned by William Demant Foundation, holds the majority of shares in Demant A/S, providing stability.
