Bravox is an electronics manufacturer, based in São Paulo, Brazil.

History[edit]

During World War II, the Brazilian government confiscated all German assets in Brazil. As the war ended, the government began to give back those assets to their rightful owners; one of those assets was the German company AEG, an electronic equipment manufacturer with its headquarters in Berlin and deeply involved in the German war goals.

At the end of the 1940, Telefunken International sent one of their board members, Felix Ewald, to Brazil with the goal of starting a company called Brasifunken, afterwards named Telefunken do Brasil.

A few years later, Felix Ewald was called back to Germany by Telefunken but he declined to go and retired from Telefunken. Together with a group of German friends, he started a small loudspeaker factory called Bravox to supply the radio stations under development at that time.

In 1964, Firmino Rocha de Freitas bought the company's stock from Felix Ewald's business partners.

Then Felix Ewald created a Development & Research group, to explore new technologies.

Technology[edit]

As the years went by the company invested in their own technology, being responsible for many innovations in sound performance and hi-tech loudspeakers, under ISO 9001 standards. The company was the first to produce Kevlar based loudspeakers.
