Demand for Wharfedale products continued to grow at an ever increasing speed and the existing factory in Bradford Road was limiting growth. In 1967, a decision was made to develop a new, more efficient factory on a green field site in Highfield Road, Bradford, just over a mile away. The factory took some seven year to complete. When finished, it comprised over 170,000 sq. ft. of production with additional office space and large scale research and development facilities.
Production growth continued unabated throughout the 1970s with classic loudspeaker models such as the Lintons and the smaller Dentons. Such was the popularity of hi fi and the efficiency of the new factory, production reached 800,000 drive units.
Today, Wharfedale Pro is a leading force in the highly competitive professional market. Amplifiers, mixing desks, effects modules, equalizers and lighting are all included within the portfolio as well as loudspeaker ranges to suit every application and installation, all with a common design philosophy – Value, Integrity and performance.
