Co-founder of Kling & Freitag Passes Away

We are mourning the passing of Martin Kling. Last weekend, the former partner, namesake and chief developer of Kling & Freitag GmbH passed away unexpectedly at the age of 54.

Already in the early 1980s, Martin and Jürgen were developing speaker systems which have also had worldwide recognition since 2000 and enjoy an excellent reputation. The two founders had the greatest successes with the CA 106 compact speaker, which became a type of industry standard in sound technology. Many other speaker systems which were developed by Martin, such as the ACCESS, CA and Line 212 series and the SEQUENZA 10, are still setting standards in industry today. Over the years, we were thus also able to develop an international position as a leading supplier of high-quality sound systems.

In 2008, Martin decided to withdraw from the company due to personal and family reasons. “I’ve had a lot of precious moments with Martin. Sometimes we sat together late into the night and worked meticulously on new ideas for loudspeaker systems. ‘Only the best is good enough’ was always his motto which still applies to us today. Without Martin, the company and the Kling & Freitag brand would not exist in this form. For that, I am very grateful to him!” said Jürgen Freitag.

Since his departure from the company, Martin had been battling some serious health problems. We will miss Martin very much and our thoughts are with his family, relatives and friends.
