About Jabra/GN Netcom
GN Netcom is part of GN Great Nordic, a Danish-based technology group founded in 1869. GN Netcom was founded in 1987 as a spin-off from GN Danavox (the current GN ReSound) and is among the leading and fastest growing suppliers of hands-free communications solutions.
Since its first headset product, the Stetomike, GN Netcom has been continuously developing and marketing new headset solutions based on its leading-edge technology. Some landmarks in GN Netcom's history have been the introduction of the first noise-canceling microphone, the first multi-purpose amplifier, the first single-cord binaural headset, and the first headset with a built-in amplifier, to mention a few. In 2000, GN Netcom launched the world's first commercially available headset using the Bluetooth® wireless technology.
From its start in the contact center market, GN Netcom has expanded its focus and product range to include hands-free solutions for the office and mobile and PC audio markets. GN Netcom's ability to target these newer markets has been further strengthened through an acquisition in 2000. In August 2000, GN Netcom acquired JABRA Corporation of San Diego, California, a leading manufacturer of headset solutions for mobile phones.
With its world headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, GN Netcom operates in three regions: the Americas, with headquarters in Nashua, New Hampshire; Europe, Middle East and Africa with headquarters in Copenhagen; and Asia-Pacific with headquarters in Hong Kong. GN Netcom’s research and development is based in Copenhagen; production facilities in China; and sales offices in 15 countries. GN Netcom employs almost 1,000 employees worldwide.
