Unitron is a Canadian hearing aid manufacturer with worldwide operations headquartered in Waterloo Region, Canada. Originally founded in 1964, we’re proud of our legacy of excellence and commitment to outstanding product performance, design, and customer satisfaction.

Our story began in the early ’60s in Newfoundland, Canada when friends and business partners Fred Stork, Rolf Strothmann and Rolf Dohmer launched their first enterprise: Universal Electronics. Initially, they offered television and radio sales and repairs, but it wasn’t long before they discovered a new opportunity. Amplification technology was quickly evolving, and Canada was an untapped market for hearing instruments.

In 1964, they formed Unitron Industries and soon moved to their new headquarters in Kitchener, Ontario – and we’ve been there ever since.

The world of hearing has changed in the 60 years we’ve been in business – and so have we.

We’re committed to developing technologies, services and programs that offer extraordinary levels of personalization. Everything we do is founded on our belief that people should feel really good about the entire hearing care experience, start to finish. That’s why we focus on empowering people with life-enhancing hearing experiences that support clients  through every stage of the hearing care journey.
