Assistive Technology, Europe, May 9 2019

Contacta Systems has been assigned as the chosen supplier of assistive listening technology for the UK’s largest hearing loss charity, Action on Hearing Loss.

The two-year initial partnership will see the Kent-based assistive tech firm respond to the thousands of enquiries the charity receives each year from individuals and businesses looking to install a system.


Contacta will be involved in site visits, which include planning, installations and commissioning, as well as maintenance for completed projects. The two organisations have already worked together in various capacities for 15 years.

Head of new business development at Contacta, Ran Meyrav, said: “We are delighted to announce this partnership with Action on Hearing Loss.

“Having worked with them for so long we understand their values and their aims for people with a hearing impairment. We look forward to being able to support their work further and creating life-changing, inclusive spaces.”

Chief executive of Action on Hearing Loss, Mark Atkinson, said: “We are very excited about this latest stage in our relationship with Contacta. They have a high level of expertise and great range of experience, from the largest to the smallest projects.

“This partnership will open up new opportunities for us as a charity to transform work and leisure spaces but also to help develop new products with the knowledge that we and our beneficiaries have.”
