In 1994, TerraTec Electronic was founded by Walter Grieger and Heiko Meertz as a
two-man business in Nettetal, a quiet little town on the left bank of the lower
Rhine river. Only a few years later, the company had become the largest German
manufacturer of sound cards in terms of sales volume and one of the leading
multimedia brands in Europe. The typical garage story? Not quite, be-cause even
8 years after TerraTec's first sound card hit the market, the company is not
focused on short-term gains on the stock market, but on producing
state-of-the-art gear to delight musicians and gamers alike.
The company has continuously expanded its product range, which now includes
professional audio systems and sound cards, webcams, video, graphics and TV
cards, as well as home networking, mp3 and digital radio consumer products.
TerraTec has demonstrated its innovative potential with the established "EWS
Technology" and "4G Sound" standards.
The past has shown that we are by no means the only ones with a high opinion of
our products, so an essential focus of our future activities will be the further
development of international markets. In Europe, that applies to the already
operational offices in the Netherlands (for Benelux), Denmark (for Scandinavia),
Great Britain, Spain, Italy, France and Czechia (for eastern Europe and the
CIS). TerraTec also has a close partnership with Fostex (USA), and we will be
inten-sively pursuing the expansion of our Sales Department in Nettetal to
provide better support for our worldwide sales partners.
TerraTec is an innovative company that benefits above all from the expertise of
its highly motivated employees and its swift response to new trends with
market-ready products. This is one of the reasons why many experts continue to
see great potential for the growth of our company. After all, it wouldn't be the
first time that TerraTec has surprised both consumers and pros with a
ground-breaking new high-tech product...
