Serving the environment
NEXO is wholly focussed on serving the environment, through the adoption of more sustainable and less polluting manufacturing processes, and through the development of systems that are ever more compact, easier to transport and less demanding to set up.
WHERE ARE WE?
All of NEXO’s loudspeaker cabinets are designed and manufactured in France, at modern purpose-built facilities just 30 km north of Paris and close to Charles de Gaulle International Airport. NEXO has also a manufacturing plant in Saint-Pierre-de-Côle. The main NEXO campus houses a highly-automated manufacturing plant, and the sales and administrative offices for the company. In a 2,000m2 dedicated R&D centre, NEXO’s acoustic design engineers bring the loudspeaker products to life.
A global network of experienced partners
From our Paris HQ, the NEXO orchestrates international export activities to over 90 countries via a loyal and long-established network of subsidiaries and distributors. Paris is also the home of our Engineering Support Division, which travels extensively around the world to support customers, train users and fine-tune installations of our equipment.
