Become a retailer
At Bang & Olufsen, we're looking for people who share our passion
As one of the world’s most iconic audio-visual brands, Bang & Olufsen has been leading the way in design, technology, and innovation for more than 95 years.
We’re searching for strong retail partners who share our passion. We have excellent opportunities across the globe, and we’re dedicated to making each relationship a success.
Why Bang & Olufsen
A brand driven by passion
Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen began a modest production of radios in 1925. Working in the attic of the Olufsen manor house in northwest Denmark, their dream was to create a brand built on innovation, quality, design, and performance. More than 95 years later, our products are still at the heart of our brand. But our continued success is due to our independent network of retail partners—those who share our passion all around the world

"I decided to work solely with Bang & Olufsen in 1989, choosing the brand over other premium audio-visual manufacturers... The decision to concentrate on Bang & Olufsen was the right one, the strength of the brand allowing us to quickly grow the business to include another four retail stores, contributing significantly to our longevity"
