MIRA-BASED WARWICK ACOUSTICS WINS RECYCLING & SUSTAINABILITY AWARD FOR WORLD-FIRST AUTOMOTIVE SPEAKERS
Warwickshire, UK, 31st January 2024: Warwick Acoustics was recognised by the EMobility Awards on 26th January, for the wide-ranging sustainability and recyclability of its unique ElectroAcoustic speakers for automotive. The Warwickshire-based company designs, engineers and manufactures revolutionary speaker systems for use in premium automotive products and signed its first production contract in June last year.
Warwick Acoustics’ ElectroAcoustic Panels are now in the final phases of industrialisation for the first customers of this new proprietary technology which are 90% lighter and use 90% less energy than traditional automotive speakers. The CleanTech award recognises the sustainability credentials of the technology, which is made in the UK using upcycled materials and is 100% by mass recyclable and free from rare earth elements.
Warwick Acoustics CEO Mike Grant comments: “We are all delighted to see our unique Clean Sound approach to premium in-car audio recognised by the EMobility awards. Our technology is fundamentally different to anything that is in a vehicle today and there are some very significant sustainability and recyclability benefits that come with that.
Our speakers have far fewer parts than a traditional one, which makes recycling easier and as a magnet-free design, we don’t use any rare earth elements in our design, which avoids the huge environmental impact of those materials. As automotive OEMs are paying ever closer attention to the sustainability of supply chains, we are proud to offer them peerless audio fidelity with an industry leading environmental footprint.”
With eight granted patent families and two further patents pending, the British-designed and manufactured audio technology from Warwick Acoustics brings a revolution to in-car audio, moving away from the traditional format of a speaker, the fundamental principles of which haven’t altered since the first car radio was installed in the 1930s.
