Founded in 1994, Parrot has rapidly established itself as a pivotal global player for wireless mobile telephone accessories.
Drawing on its tried-and-tested expertise on voice recognition and signal processing technologies, Parrot was one of the very first companies to produce Bluetooth®-based wireless hands free car kits, having identified this standard’s vast potential as early as 1999. In 2006, Parrot sold about 3 million units.
Determined to accompany the wireless peripherals’ irresistible breakthrough into our day-to-day lives, Parrot has been developing since 2006 a new wireless range of sound and image products.
Today, Parrot truly has a major international focus: 90,5% of its sales are generated outside of France, and a large percentage of its production is outsourced to carefully selected partners, enabling it to achieve the best possible level of quality and responsiveness. Parrot is now particularly well positioned to capitalize on the bright future opening up for mobile telephone devices.
Parrot has achieved strong growth in its consolidated revenues, up from 80.9 million euros pro forma in 2005 to 166.9 million euros in 2006.
