HARMAN International (HARMAN) reinvents smart consumer experiences that make life easier, productive and entertaining—at home, in the car or on the go. We design, manufacture and engineer connected products and solutions for automakers, consumers, and enterprises worldwide, including connected car systems, audio and visual products, enterprise automation solutions, and services supporting the Internet of Things. With leading brands including AKG®, Harman Kardon®, Infinity®, JBL®, Lexicon®, Mark Levinson® and Revel®, HARMAN is admired by audiophiles, musicians, and the entertainment venues where they perform around the world. More than 50 million automobiles on the road today are equipped with HARMAN audio and connected car systems. Our software services power billions of mobile devices and systems that are connected, integrated and secure across all platforms, from work and home to car and mobile. HARMAN has a workforce of approximately 33,000 people globally. In March 2017, Samsung Electronics completed the acquisition of HARMAN International Industries, Incorporated (“HARMAN”). As such, HARMAN now operates as a standalone Samsung subsidiary, delisted from the New York Stock Exchange and overseen by a Board of Directors.
We are proud to operate in more than 30 countries, spread across the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, the Middle East, and Australia. Our dedication to learning, growth, and high-quality products has led to the creation of more than 6,500 patents and patents pending, and more than 80% of luxury cars are now equipped with our premium systems.
In 2020, we restructured our company by merging four business divisions into two. The new Automotive division combines the Connected Car and Connected Services divisions with the automotive-related activities of Audio Services. This modification consolidated our sales and project engineering teams and created a clear point of contact for all automotive customers. The refreshed Lifestyle division combines our consumer-related Audio Services and Professional Solutions Services.
