Head was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1950 by aeronautical engineer, Howard Head. In the early years Howard Head kept himself busy with the production of ski's until he captured a great share of the US market during the 1960's. In the late 1960's, the tennis division was created when Howard Head figured out a way of strengthening the tennis racket frame by introducing the aluminium frame. The idea became a success and was first introduced in the 1969 US Open. After Howard Head's departure, one of the tennis players that Head sponsored, Arthur Ashe, won Wimbledon, defeating Jimmy Connors in 1975. Many Grand Slam titles by the world's greatest athletes have followed ever since. Today the company is headquartered in Kennelbach, Austria and Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Furthermore, this company is listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange.
