Beltone Returns to its Roots in Downtown Chicago

April 18, 2023

The established hearing aid brand was founded in Chicago 83 years ago

CHICAGO, Ill.Beltone, named America’s #1 Hearing Care Retailer & Best in Customer Service by Newsweek, announced today that the Beltone US headquarters has returned to Chicago after spending over 17 years in Glenview, Illinois. Given how many Beltone employees reside in Chicagoland and Beltone’s rich history in Chicago, it was a clear decision to return to its roots.

The Beltone legacy began in 1940 when founders Sam and Faye Posen opened its first hearing aid store in a modest building in downtown Chicago’s “Loop”. As the company grew into a nationally recognized brand, Beltone moved its headquarters to Chicago’s north side to accommodate its manufacturing and research and development needs. In 2005, Beltone headquarters relocated to Glenview where it remained until early this year. The vibrance of Chicago’s Fulton Market, along with Chicago’s many amenities and attractions that employees, customers, and business partners desire, led to envisioning the space at 656 W. Randolph as Beltone’s new headquarters.

Another benefit of the move, Beltone, part of the GN Group, has the amazing opportunity to work more closely with renowned GN brand SteelSeries, a leading gaming and esports peripherals manufacturer. Beltone, SteelSeries, and the GN Hearing US Research & Development team are now in the same building at 656 W. Randolph.

“Our new headquarters in this modern and invigorating space is the perfect place to continue Beltone’s legacy in Chicago,” says Beltone President, David Molella. “We’re also very excited about the increased collaboration across the business that this move will foster.”
