Starkey Hearing Technologies UK received a very special visit from CEO and Owner Mr Bill Austin at their Stockport Headquarters.
Opening in 1976, Stockport was the first Starkey Hearing Technologies’ international facility.
Mr. Austin spoke of the dream team that he envisioned and that now resides in Stockport. Starkey International has since grown to more than 21 international facilities worldwide.
During a walkabout of the facility, Mr Austin congratulated employees and handed each employee an angel medal.
He talked about how he founded the company with the simple premise, “Alone we can’t do much. Together, we can change the world.”
That vision is brought to life every day at Starkey Hearing Technologies UK– with every Starkey product purchased, a donation is made to the Starkey Hearing Foundation to help more people in need around the world receive the gift of hearing.
The Starkey Hearing Foundation
Bill Austin and his wife Tani now dedicate their time to the Starkey Hearing Foundation.
Founded by William F. Austin in 1984, it was built on Austin’s vision, “So the World May Hear.”
The Foundation fits more than 100,000 hearing aids annually to children and adults through global hearing missions. As a member of the Clinton Global Initiative, the Foundation has pledged to fit more than 1 million hearing aids to people in need this decade.
