For 25 years, through the pursuit of continuous new advances in innovation, Focal has actually been able to establish a harmonious research and production system that allows us to continually enhance our items and introduce new ones, all with the exact same objective: the most loyal reproduction of music. The current example of this approach has actually been the intro of Beryllium in our top items, which has actually become a new recommendation worldwide.

Continuously pursuing innovation is the embodiment of Focal's corporate technique which objective involves every facet of the company. From R&D to production to quality assurance, all our groups are completely involved and focused on this one objective: consistent development through innovation.

In today's world, where globalization and the pursuit of chasing after cheaper production approaches have actually tempted most companies to splinter their organizations, Focal has actually opted to be different. Though we have actually grown greatly through the years, our R & D, head office and production centers stay based in Saint-Etienne (France).

We have actually found out that real innovation is not simply work carried out at the research department, however is also a concern of thorough management and the direct control of the different production phases. The example of Beryllium is a significant one. Just three years ago nobody can producing tweeters with a pure Beryllium foil dome. Focal innovated a solution based on research and the creation of particular internal commercial processes.

Such an approach has actually given us an important benefit over our competitors: we establish our own innovation, which permits us to regularly supply real quality production using our own approaches. In 2008, the Focal Car range gets richer with a new amplifier line: Solid. This completely sums up Focal's dedication for high musical quality from the entry-level contrary to the general propensity that consists in trying to find the most inexpensive prices in top priority rather of performance.The outcome is music standardization and trivialization, which is extremely prejudicial to sound quality. Focal cultivates this difference. This is the core strength of our brand and our company. This is the Spirit of Sound. We wish to share this with you ... It is our Utopia
