DANIELS ELECTRONICS CELEBRATES ITS 60th ANNIVERSARY
Victoria, B.C. Canada – January 11, 2010 – Daniels Electronics Ltd today announced the start of a year long celebration of its 60th anniversary leading up to the actual incorporation date on December 9th. The following history of the company is extracted from its website http://www.danelec.com/company/history/
Daniels Electronics was officially incorporated on December 9th, 1950. Throughout the 1950s, Gordon Daniels continued to produce AM radiotelephones in Prince Rupert. During the mid-1950s, the founder moved his family and the company's office to Victoria. Following the passing of the founder in 1962, his two sons, Terry and Ron established a growing manufacturing and marketing operation in two old buildings near the company's present location. Today, Terry Daniels is Chairman of the Board and Ron Daniels is a Board member.
A downturn in the fishing industry in the early 1980s presented challenges to companies selling marine radiotelephones. Fortunately, Daniels was able to diversify its business by winning a contract to manufacture a made-to-order mountain top radio repeater system for the British Columbia Department of Highways. Today the company continues to produce repeaters and base stations that are sold worldwide, however the products have evolved through seven technology generations and today incorporate the latest Software Defined Radio technology.
The company will be celebrating its 60th anniversary throughout 2010 with special events planned for the staff, industry and sales channel partners. To send Terry and Ron best wishes on this momentous milestone in the company’s history, email firstname.lastname@example.org
