In the Beginning

In the Beginning

In 1974 Dave Stockley, joint founder and company Chairman, opened a retail shop in Beltinge, near Herne Bay along with Paul Nicholson. Initially they distributed various brands of communication equipment including Icom. They later approached Icom Inc. and were granted sole distribution rights in the UK and Republic of Ireland. This paved the way for future success.

As the company grew, they launched a handportable for the UK Amateur radio market. This proved so successful that marine and commercial variants soon found their way to these shores.

During the Falklands conflict, the company received a large order from the UK Ministry of Defence. It was all hands on deck for the small team, who modified and inspected each radio to meet the strict MoD specifications. The quality of Icom's radios, combined with the ability to tailor each product to the users needs, created a formula for success.
