Manufactured: 2000 - unknown
Bang & Olufsen, founded in 1925 by two young Danish engineers, Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen, was set up to build radio sets for the newly-emerging radio industry.
The company's history, told in this publication: 'Bang & Olufsen - From Vision to Legend' , was published in order to celebrate their seventy-fifth year and includes a traumatic event in World War II that nearly brought the company to collapse. Danish saboteurs, with help from German occupying forces, blew up the Struer factory in retaliation for the company's refusal to work with the Germans and their role in the Danish resistance. Bang & Olufsen survived the setback and the company flourished.
'Bang & Olufsen - From Vision to Legend' by Jens Bang (Denmark 2000) was published in recognition of its first successful 75 years.
