Making Waves Since 1932

David Bogen emigrated from Russia to Texas in 1909. After traveling the American South for two years, working odd jobs and improving his English, Bogen settled in New York City, where he found employment with Consolidated Edison (ConEd). At ConEd, Bogen developed an acute interest in electricity and its applications. He began studying electrical engineering at Cooper Union at night, after his 10 hour work shift. After seven years of hard work and little sleep, Bogen earned a degree in electrical engineering.

Faced with widely pervasive anti-Semitism, Bogen struggled to find employment. Using savings from his ConEd salary, Bogen started an electronics parts distribution company that steadily grew. In 1932, at the dawn of the audio electronics age and in the middle of the Great Depression, the David Bogen Company moved from distributing to manufacturing audio products. During World War II the company was recognized for its important contributions to the war effort. David Bogen was proud to “give back” to the nation that had given him freedom, opportunity, and prosperity.

Over the past ninety years the David Bogen Company, now Bogen Communications, has continued to grow and evolve. Today Bogen Communications focuses on telephone paging systems, commercial audio, and sophisticated communications systems for education and industry. With nearly a century of audio electronics experience to its name, Bogen Communications is the time and field-tested solution.
