Customer appreciation

‘This prize proves that we can offer not just excellent eye care but that we also have the in-house expertise to offer our customers the best hearing care.’ says Angeli Engels, Director of Audio at Hans Anders. We have qualified audiologists, A-brand hearing aids from top suppliers, and agreements with all healthcare insurers. And all this at the best prices in the market and always nearby for our customers, thanks to the large number of shops in the Netherlands and Belgium. This prize shows our customers appreciate us. I am extra happy with this prize because there are plenty of people who are not aware that Hans Anders offers hearing care, even though we have been doing this in our shops for 20 years. Hopefully, these accoladed will change all that soon.’

Bart van den Nieuwenhof, CEO of the Hans Anders Groep adds: ‘Due to increased population ageing, the hearing care market is an important growth market for Hans Anders. In addition, it is much less taboo now to purchase a (often invisible) hearing aid when you need one. We consider this prize to be a huge testament to the fact that Hans Anders has invested a lot of time, energy, and attention into further enhancing the quality of our shops and our hearing care, which has now been voted the best in the Netherlands and Belgium. A double feather in the cap or our audiologists. The great thing is, we are not at the finish line yet. We are working with a dedicated team to become even better, with innovative products, and certainly omni-channel service provision too. So that we can serve our customers better when it comes to hearing well, whenever and wherever they want.’
