About Roberts Radio
In 2017 Roberts Radio Ltd. celebrates 85 years of business. The company was founded by good friends Harry Roberts and Leslie Bidmead, who began making portable radios from a small shop in London in 1932. Initially producing just three a week, they had a simple philosophy: never compromise on quality and keep pushing the boundaries.
Roberts is now a subsidiary of the privately owned Glen Dimplex Group, and although much has changed in the world of audio technology since then, the company has followed these values ever since and has remained the UK market leader in portable radios. From the iconic fifties-styled Revival retro radio through to cutting edge wireless speakers with multi room capabilities, and whether it is for radio or music enjoyment, the Roberts range of products has something to suit everyone.
With multiple industry endorsements and two Royal Warrants granted in recognition of supply of radio equipment to the Royal Households, Roberts radios are built to stand the test of time and are truly loved by listeners the world over.
