Lockwood Loudspeakers Factory Tour

Lockwood Loudspeakers writes: “Experience a behind-the-scenes journey through our factory as we unveil exclusive photos showcasing the meticulous handcrafting process of our loudspeakers at Lockwood in the UK.

Founded in 1930, Lockwood Loudspeakers stands as a proud British manufacturer with a rich tradition of crafting iconic loudspeakers at our factory in England. As a true 100% family-owned business, our legacy traces back to Stanley Timms and his dedication lives on through his son Andrew and now his grandson Daniel.
Inspired by the inaugural UK television broadcast in 1936, Stanley Timms, initially a carpenter, began by crafting radio cabinets before venturing into the production of high-quality loudspeakers. A collaboration with the BBC in the 1950s led to the creation of the legendary Lockwood loudspeaker, renowned in prominent TV, radio and recording studios worldwide.

Each step of the loudspeaker production process, from cutting our 18mm birchwood panels to cabinet construction, applying high-quality finishes, final assembly and rigorous testing is meticulously executed by our highly skilled team.
Lockwood is dedicated to crafting loudspeakers that honour our esteemed heritage. We are committed to creating speakers that stand the test of time; our five legendary models remain faithful to the original Lockwood designs from the 1950s and 60s.
Our iconic speakers have played an indispensable role in shaping some of the world’s most renowned and best-sounding albums. Trusted by numerous music legends, including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Queen, The Rolling Stones, Supertramp, Stevie Wonder, John Lennon, The Beach Boys, Michael Jackson and many more.

Lockwood loudspeakers have also been integral to the production of countless legendary movie soundtracks. From all the James Bond films from Dr. No to The Spy Who Loved Me, to Quincy Jones’s score for McKenna’s Gold, Superman II, Flash Gordon, The Omen, all of The Beatles films, and The Who’s Quadrophenia.
Our primary focus at Lockwood revolves around the audiophile hi-fi world, utilising the same products that thousands of records and artists have relied upon to craft their music.
