TAD Laboratory

TAKUMI the Artisans

Tendo is the only place in the world, where the highest rank speaker, TAD, is produced.
Each TAD speaker is hand assembled by certified artisans (TAKUMI), and it is essential for them
to possess micron-level precision as to assemble TAD.
Such master craftsmanship is what makes it so special and one and the only, which only Pioneer can achieve
after all the efforts we have made for producing TAD speakers by handmade without any compromise.

As a Mother Plant

Tohoku Pioneer has speaker plants in Vietnam and Mexico.
Newly developed element technologies at Tendo are handed to them to keep "Made in Tendo"
quality meanwhile keeping cost competitiveness.
Roles of Tendo further extend to establishing policy, standard, and processes of production
and quality assurance, etc. by applying functions and organization of foreign plants so that
they can independently continue their operation.
