KOKKEDAL, DENMARK - DPA Microphones (www.dpamicrophones.com), the Danish manufacturer of high-quality condenser microphones, has opened a new headquarters in the Copenhagen suburb of Kokkedal. The modernized space will put an emphasis on the brand’s research & development facilities, with significant upgrades and new studio spaces that encourage creativity.
In addition to the creative spaces and visual upgrades, the 1,700-square-meter facility implements several green and environmental strategies, including WindowMaster climate solutions, energy-conscious LED lighting and electric vehicle charging stations.
