Edifier® Technology Company, Ltd. was founded in 1996 as a small national company in Beijing, China, and solely focused on the domestic Chinese market. Today, Edifier employs more than 3,000 people worldwide, produces eight million audio sets annually, and have partnered with distributors in more than 60 countries. Edifier strives to not only achieve excellence through providing the end user with the best audio experience possible, but also to manufacture their products responsibly and humanely.
As an environmentally conscious company, all products also are ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) certified, and Edifier is committed to reducing their carbon footprint.
In addition to being one of the most eco-friendly manufacturing companies in China, Edifier is also dedicated to providing a healthy and safe work environment for all employees. All factory workers are provided with earplugs, masks, uniforms, and protective eyewear. All machines use protection guards, and ventilation and exhaust fans are used to remove emissions for the benefit of both employees and the environment. The Painting production lines use a water catchment system to collect paint particles and prevent their circulation through the air.
Edifier Founder and CEO, Wendong Zhang, ensured that the facility was as eco-friendly and humane as possible by building employee accommodations on the manufacturing grounds that are more than admirable. All employees engage in eight hour work days, 5.5 days per week and are given off on all public holidays. A complimentary bus service to the local town and markets is provided three times per week, and all employees have full access to a cafeteria, badminton courts, basketball courts, children's playground, barbeque terrace and supermarket on the grounds. Additionally, Edifier built a karaoke bar and computer room and offers free Wi-Fi within all rooms.
Outside of the manufacturing grounds, the Edifier Cares Program supports the Humla Hospital located in one of the most rural and poorest areas of Nepal beneath the Himalayas - accessible to most by foot or horseback. The Humla Hospital opened in 2003 and by 2010 has treated more than 65,000 people under the care of Dr. Ueshe Lodoe Lama, the hospital's only resident doctor, and volunteers. For each Edifier product sold, the company donates a portion of the sale towards the hospital in hopes of providing better equipment and medicine to those who have nothing.
Such a socially responsible philosophy gives Edifier an edge in the business world. It is the recycling efforts and energy and resource savings combined with the design and sound quality that allows Edifier to go to market with products whose performance and features exceed those of its competitors.
When a consumer purchases an Edifier product, they can be sure that they are buying the very best in design and application, which is supported by the numerous prestigious design, innovation, and engineering awards that Edifier products have received; most recently including the 2012 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Award for the Spinnaker and the 2011 Reddot Design Award Winner for Sound To Go.
