Roberts Radio is a consumer electronics limited company based in Mexborough, South Yorkshire, England. It has been producing radios for over 80 years. Initially, the company only traded in the United Kingdom, but now exports worldwide. The company was initially based in central London, near Oxford Circus and then at Rathbone Place, but moved to East Molesey in 1941.
In 1962, the company had a purpose built factory constructed in West Molesey. The company has been granted three Royal warrants in its own right, and one via the purchase of Dynatron Radio Ltd,[n 1] in 1981.
The company was struggling in the 1980s, when one of its transistor radios appeared in an advert in 1989 for Martini, reviving interest in the product. Two limited edition product runs sold out, and led to the reissue of the original design as the Revival model, inspired by a handbag belonging to Harry Roberts' wife Elsie.
Roberts Radio is a subsidiary of the privately owned Glen Dimplex Group, which operates from the Republic of Ireland.
The company's current CEO is Owen Watters.
