Made in France
Focal has been designing and manufacturing loudspeakers for the home, speaker drivers for cars and studio monitors for recording studios for over 30 years, and more recently headphones. Based in Saint-Étienne, France, Focal is a world leader in the industry thanks to our technologies and constant innovation. This philosophy adds long-term value to Focal loudspeakers, because you won’t find these technologies anywhere else.
designed and developed in France
Focal is recognised and renowned worldwide, particularly for our expertise and manufacturing “Made in France”.
In terms of expertise, first of all, Focal products, all categories included, are designed and developed in France by our team of engineers at our workshop in Saint-Étienne. Thus, each product benefits from Focal technology and innovation. The 100% Focal design ensures the perpetuity of the tradition and our philosophy “the Spirit of Sound”. It is also, and most of all, the best way to ensure we have full control over the design and quality control phases in order to provide quality products.
Next, in terms of production, the speaker drivers and loudspeakers are entirely manufactured in Saint-Étienne (Loire department, Rhône-Alpes) following the relocation of production in 2002, in order to have optimal control over our products. Indeed, producing our products at our factory in France really adds value and guarantees an optimal level of sound quality, thanks to our unique expertise, our specific production line and our assembly which is in part carried out by hand. To this end, all the cabinets of our high-end loudspeakers are made at our Guy HF facility in Bourbon-Lancy (Saône-et-Loire department, Burgundy) and the final assembly of all our hi-fi loudspeakers is carried out at our factory in order to ensure maximum quality.
quality of our products
Some of our products integrate high-end technologies manufactured by our various industrial partners, and some of our manufacturing activities are sub-contracted, particularly entry-level products with integrated electronics. Nevertheless, all our products are designed and developed in Saint-Étienne by our R&D and Project teams.
As the quality of our products is our main concern, we choose all our foreign partners with great care to ensure a level of quality which meets our criteria, whether they are suppliers of components or finished products. The strict quality control standards which we require of our foreign suppliers are a guarantee that manufacturing adheres to our values.
