Boland Acoustics Company founded by Peter R. Boland in or around 1987 in the town of Waihi in New Zealand to manufacture loudspeakers. The company was one of a few small start-up audio companies that mostly made loudspeakers and related paraphernalia that got founded in the Waikato region after a large Pye/Philips plant closed down in 1986 leaving the area ripe with unemployed loudspeaker specialists, in fact the Boland Acoustics company purchased some tooling and assets from that plant. The only products we have seen from the company were the BX series of standmount speakers, these were very similar in external and internal design as British speakers had been a few years earlier, but we have heard of bookshelf and large high end models from the company as well.
The company stopped manufacturing speakers in 1998 when the owner suffered a serious a health problem, but after Mr. Boland recovered he continued the operation of the company but on a smaller scale with no serial manufacture of speakers, but the they do make custom designs and repair loudspeakers and drive units including models from other manufacturers, and have specialist knowledge and parts for the repairs of products from other NZ speaker manufacturers. Not to be confused with USA based video equipment manufacturer Boland Communications. Homepage: http://www.boland.co.nz Boland Acoustics, 48 Bradford St., Waihi 3610, New Zealand.
