  • Re: Bang and Olufsen Outsourced

    Mr10Percent – Thank you for your very insightful input. Most companies unfortunately have not decreased prices when they have outsourced so although consumers have demanded cheaper goods they have not necessarily gotten them. The companies that chose not to outsource had to raise their prices to stay competitive. Therefore most products which

However, the top of the line Sony “consumer” television you can buy may be much less because they are not built in Japan by hand as the B&Os are hand assembled in Denmark. [/quote] They are?

    Puncher and Folkdeejay – I understand all this. What I'm saying is that B&O saw outsourcing as the only way out. In my opinion this would not have happened if they had a different strategy to begin with. As mentioned if they had added a dock and licensed it with the apple stores and sold it for what it was selling which is only marginally

    Jonathan – Do some research before you comment. I am referring as I mentioned to the professional or high end lines of these high volume sellers. Many of these products sell at high volume as well for example: Canon makes the 1D, 5D and 60D in Japan whilst outsourcing the lower end Digital SLRs, Nikon does the same, Sony keeps production of some

    I doubt they will move their higher end manufacturing to China. The reason being is that they still want it to be of the highest quality and standard. I think they know that if they do they will become another generic brand like Bose or even like Sony. The thing is even those brands which I mentioned don't outsource their higher end products exactly

The point is that the BS8 is 900 because that's what the company decided it to be. Had they decided for them to be made in Denmark and sold at 1100 for

    [quote user="Jonathan"] sorry, it's just too funny! Every company make a note. If you want to survive, increase your prices by over 20% because your customers won't mind paying that little bit extra for you not cutting costs... Best strategy I've ever heard!
