With our first headquarters in the Saarland hamlet of Münchwies bursting at the seams, we relocated the company to a new industrial park in the town of St. Wendel. Designed to meet our needs and offering plenty of room to expand, these buildings would gradually be fitted with industrial production lines.

Our big hit that year was the Hughes & Kettner Cream Machine, another groundbreaking design that resonated with guitarists. The first of our products to crack the 10,000 -mark in sales, it flew off shelves. Its circuitry would go on to feature prominently in many successful Hughes & Kettner guitar amps.
