Proud provider of life-enhancing hearing care experiences you’ll love. 

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 50+ years we’ve been in business – and so have we.

We think and do things differently than our competitors. 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.

Are you ready to say goodbye to the status quo?

Love the experience is more than just words. We put a lot of hard work into creating innovations that are flexible and empowering, making it easy to build an unmatched experience that is relevant and impactful. Our values drive everything we do as an organization. 

Our solutions easily adapt to meet changing needs. For us, flexibility isn’t about reactive shifts in direction. It’s about setting a strategic course that puts people first and considers how their needs evolve over time. It’s smart hearing solutions that can be personalized to people’s lifestyles and adapt to their changing needs. Everything we do is built to deliver on this approach, every step of the way.

We enable our customers and their clients to make collaborative, confident choices together. For us, empowerment isn’t about transferring responsibility or control. It’s about the innovations that keep us connected and engaged, ensuring our solutions are relevant and impactful. 

We value the hard work that goes into making experiences feel easy and convenient – starting with a great first impression. For us, easy isn’t about avoiding complexity. It’s about working with it to develop seamless solutions that enable everyone to spend more time doing what they love. We push the boundaries from what works, to what works better.
