Listan GmbH & Co. KG was started in 2000, originally as an online shop for PC components selling directly to consumers in Germany. Due to the high demand and keen interest of dealers, the B2B and hardware distribution arm of the business developed rapidly. Market research in 2002 convinced Listan to create two proprietary brands: be quiet! and Revoltec.
Listan’s focus has gradually shifted over the years and now mostly concentrates on the be quiet! brand. be quiet! has become the leading manufacturer of premium PC power supplies, cases and cooling solutions. The brand has enjoyed market success for over ten years and nowadays is one of the fastest growing brands in the IT industry. be quiet! has consistently been awarded “Manufacturer of the Year” every year since 2006 and enjoys market leadership in Germany for PSUs, according to GfK market research data (January 2017). Looking forward the brand has a clear goal, namely to be the top PSU brand worldwide.
In 2013, Listan acquired the rights to the Xilence brand. The subsidiary Xilence GmbH manages and takes care of the Xilence brand and all sales.
As a company Listan is a resounding success. With around 60 employees worldwide it operates internationally and in some markets holds a leading position. In addition to a thriving business in Germany, Listan has branches abroad to address local markets. Listan has a modern logistics center just outside Hamburg, Germany that boasts 2,500 m² of warehouse space with a completely digitalized shipment processing system and highly experienced and efficient warehousing staff.
