Listan GmbH & Co. KG was started in 2000, originally as an online shop for PC components selling directly to consumers in Germany. Due to high demand and the keen interest of dealers, the B2B and hardware distribution arm of the business rapidly developed. A market research study in 2002 convinced Listan to create two proprietary brands: be quiet! and Revoltec.
Listan’s focus has gradually shifted over the years and it’s present main focus is on the be quiet! brand. be quiet! is now the leading manufacturer of premium PC power supplies, cases and cooling solutions. The brand has enjoyed market success for over 8 years and is one of the fastest growing brands in the IT industry nowadays. be quiet! has been awarded “Manufacturer of the Year” for eight years in a row and continues to enjoy market leadership in Germany for PSUs, according to GfK market research data (January 2015). And the brand has a clear goal: to be the number one PSU brand worldwide!
In 2013, Listan acquired the rights to the Xilence brand. Its subsidiary Xilence GmbH manages and takes care of the Xilence brand and all sales.
Listan is a successful company with around 60 employees worldwide, it operates internationally and holds a leading position in some of its markets. In addition to a thriving business at home in Germany, Listan has opened branches abroad to address local markets. There are now Listan offices in Taiwan and Poland. Listan has a modern logistics center near Hamburg, Germany that boasts 2,500 m² of warehouse space with a completely digitalized shipment processing system and highly experienced and efficient warehousing staff.
