Turtle Beach solidifies manufacturing partnership with Foxconn

- Technology - Oct 09, 2015

As a manufacturer for massive industry names like Apple, Nintendo, Nokia and Sony, Hon Hai Precision Industry Ltd. is one of the most widely recognized electronics manufacturing companies in the world—or at least it is under its more common name, Foxconn Technology Group. Foxconn has many partners, and this week has brought a new brand name into its manufacturing portfolio. Today Turtle Beach announced that it has inked a strategic partnership agreement with Foxconn.

Turtle Beach is best known for its gaming headsets, creating surround-sound wireless headset systems for consoles like Xbox and Playstation along with branded headset content for franchises like Star Wars and Blizzard’s Heroes of the Storm. But the company also creates solutions for the healthcare industry through its HyperSound label.

According to Turtle Beach, bringing a major manufacturer like Foxconn on board is a vital step in helping the company bring both sides of the business to a wider global audience:

"This is a substantial step in our operational transformation, designed to increase agility, visibility and consistency at the front end of our supply chain network," said Robert Andris, Senior Vice President of Global Supply Chain Operations, Turtle Beach Corporation. "Adding Foxconn as a key global manufacturing partner, in conjunction with our recently announced global logistics partnership with Keuhne + Nagel – two of the best in the business in their respective fields – frames our supply chain development strategy, which is designed to support Turtle Beach's market expansion as we manage costs, optimize inventory and maintain superior product quality."

In the press release issued by Turtle Beach, Foxconn also spoke to what its capabilities can bring to the table in helping Turtle Beach achieve its goals:

"We are excited to be selected as a strategic partner to Turtle Beach, a company known for their innovative, technology-driven products and global leadership in gaming audio," said Mark Chien, Senior Executive Vice President, Foxconn. "We look forward to leveraging our strong expertise in high-quality consumer electronics manufacturing to deliver their groundbreaking HyperSound Clearproduct to consumers later this year."

 

While the two companies first began their partnership late last year, today’s announcement marks Foxconn’s full immersion in manufacturing both Turtle Beach’s gaming headsets and its HyperSound Clear speakers for people living with hearing loss.
