Ortofon is the world leader in the cartridge industry
Ortofon is the world's leading cartridge manufacturer and one stop supplier of cartridges.
Our company has always been working with sound reproduction. It was founded in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1918 and initially made soundtracks for movies. In 1948 Ortofon developed its first moving coil cartridge, since then more than 300 different cartridges have been developed and manufactured.
We benefit from being established in Denmark, a country recognized for its strong tradition in acoustics and its wealth of other high-end manufacturers, who make hearing aids and acoustic measurement equipment, in addition to all aspects of high-end audio.
Today our company is the leading cartridge manufacturer and supplier of cartridges. This is a result of significant design experience and great technological know-how.
Research and development is done with the company's own engineers supported by a strong network of acoustic know-how and industrial design in Denmark. It is our philosophy to constantly develop new products and thus renew and improve the product range in accordance with the needs of the markets.
Ortofon is owned by Danish businessmen and employs a staff of 70 people.
The Ortofon manufacturing unit in Nakskov in the south of Denmark has modern machinery combined with experienced operators, so human craftsmanship is delivered with uniform industrial quality.
