Harman International

Harman International Industries, Incorporated is an American audio and infotainment equipment company. The company is headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, and maintains major operations in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Harman International includes many consumer and specialty brands targeting specific audio and electronics product categories.

Dr. Sidney Harman and Bernard Kardon founded the predecessor to Harman International, Harman Kardon, in 1953. The company continued its growth plan with a string of acquisitions throughout the 1980s that pushed Harman International's sales from about $80 million in 1981 to more than $200 million by 1986, and then to more than $500 million by 1989. Harman International has also developed a number of proprietary technologies, which are incorporated into a number of its branded products, including Logic 7 and VMAx Virtual Theater multichannel audio processing, and EzSet automatic speaker-level calibration.

The company has benefited from growing demand for increasingly sophisticated information and entertainment devices (WiFi, Televisions, MP3 players, and GPS) in cars. This market is still largely in its infancy with penetration rates of less than 20% in Europe and less than 10% in the United States. However, the company's high exposure to auto manufacturers makes it subject to the cyclicality of the auto industry.
