The NuEar Pilgrimage for Better Hearing
Posted by William A. Kent, BC-HIS on April 10, 2015
How many times have you heard of someone moving from the sunny beaches of California to the arctic splendor of Minnesota? Probably not often, but for our hearing aid technology partner, NuEar, their northern migration path has helped us to become leaders in providing premium hearing care in the area. Learn how NuEar's humble beginnings have evolved into numerous successes in providing better hearing to thousands of individuals every year.
The NuEar story begins nearly 40 years ago in sunny San Diego as an ambitious hearing aid manufacturer. NuEar's products were gaining traction in the 1980's but didn't really take off until the company was purchased by fellow hearing aid manufacturer, Starkey Laboratories. Based out of Minneapolis, MN area, Starkey Laboratories and the company's CEO William F. Austin, saw the potential to grow successes in providing superior hearing products to a larger portion of the United States. With the acquisition of NuEar came the loyalty of many dedicated hearing professionals across the country. Over time this group of hearing professionals grew rapidly into one of the largest nationwide networks of hearing care professionals in the country!
In the late 2000's opportunity struck again to relocate NuEar under the same roof as its parent company Starkey Hearing Technologies, formerly Starkey Laboratories. This move came with little hesitation as it presented new opportunity to incorporate industry-leading hearing aid technology into patient offerings. This leap forward easily justified the relocation, as it allowed for greater patient outcomes and hearing benefits. The NuEar pilgrimage, from the southwestern United States to northern, is not at all a backwards move. Rather, it was a forward progression into providing the best possible hearing care to many individuals in need.
Our affiliation with NuEar grows stronger every with advances in hearing aid technology and patient care flourish. Regardless of what part of the country our hearing aid technology partner resides, we are excited to be the area's conduit to the best in hearing aid technology.
