In the Beginning…

In 1974 Dave Stockley, founder and company Chairman, opened a retail shop in Beltinge, near Herne Bay, with partner Paul Nicholson.

Initially, they distributed various brands of communication equipment including Icom. They later approached Icom Inc. of Japan and were granted sole distribution rights in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

As the company grew, Thanet Electronics then launched a hand-portable for radio amateurs. This proved so successful that marine and commercial variants soon found their way to these shores.
