TC Group is a holding company of six individual companies consisting of Tannoy Group, Lab.Gruppen, TC Electronic Group, TC-Helicon, TC Applied Technologies and White Acoustics. The TC Group was formed in early 2002, when the ‘old’ TC Group of companies merged with Tgi plc. The merger was completed to create a Group with the necessary expertise and market access to take advantage of the trend towards convergence of digital and acoustic technologies in the audio industry.
The goal is to design, produce and distribute the best engineered and most recognized and respected brands of high-performance audio products in the world. We want to differentiate ourselves from our competitors, based upon our strong brands and a high-end profile, gaining advantages by providing integrated digital technologies that improve fidelity as well as functionality of the products offered.
