Starkey Hearing Technologies announces that it has been named a Manufacturing Excellence Awards’ winner by Twin Cities Business. In its inaugural year, the Manufacturing Excellence Awards, “recognize excellence in Minnesota-based manufacturing related to product design and engineering, manufacturing processes, business operations, human capital, logistics and supply-chain management, local manufacturing, and/or product or niche uniqueness.” 

Livio AI, “the world’s first Healthable hearing aid,” is said to have earned Starkey this recognition by “going beyond what is traditionally expected of a hearing aid with the help of integrated sensors and artificial intelligence.” With features such as brain and body activity tracking, fall detection and alerts, language translation, personalized memories, and more, Livio AI is helping to “pave the way for revolutionary hearing devices and world-class manufacturing strategies.”

“Manufacturing has been at Starkey’s core since we opened our doors more than 50 years ago. Since then, we have dedicated ourselves to mastering the intersection of art and science,” said Starkey Chief Operations Officer Chris Hillman. “From constructing the world’s smallest invisible custom hearing aids to creating the world’s most advanced hearing health products, Starkey is at the leading edge of manufacturing capabilities. And we’re just getting started!” 

Starkey will be in attendance at the awards dinner and program held on September 26, 2019, at Mercury Mosaics & Tile, Inc, in Minneapolis.
