Wavecor is a company specializing in high quality speaker units for the industry and for private Do-It-Yourself hobbyists. Besides, Wavecor is offering a complete speaker system turnkey solution package for the industry.

Wavecor factoryWavecor is located in the southern GuangDong province of China; an area where a major share of all loudspeaker and loudspeaker component manufacturing is taking place today.
"Here we have access to the high quality components required for our production as well as the sources for employing a skilled labor force. At the same time this location allows us to keep costs at a competitive level. The area offers generally good infrastructure and easy exporting of our products".

So while several of the key people behind Wavecor are of Danish origin with a long history in the Danish loudspeaker unit industry, they have accepted that China is the place for making loudspeakers today. Especially high quality loudspeakers that usually require more labor intense processes.
"Even though there is still being assembled loudspeakers in Europe and North America, almost everyone get their components from suppliers in China anyway. So why not take the consequence and locate your operation in China?"
