RADIO (1936) LTD

Radio (1936) Ltd was formed in 1923 and closed in 1967.

Formed as Radio Ltd in 1923 to produce Ultimate receivers and reorganised in 1936 to become Radio (1936) Ltd, the company behind one of the best-known names in NZ radio manufacturing would also become one of the largest.  They produced a wide range of receivers, typically of high quality, both for their internal (house) brands as well as their private brands - such as Golden Knight for Farmers.

They would reorganise one more time in 1955 as Ultimate-Ekco (N.Z.) Co. Ltd, and the company lasted another 12 years before being dismantled by Pye NZ.
