The company was established in 1961 by Mr S. Rössler in Walvis Bay, with main emphasis on Marine Electronics. With the retirement of Mr S. Rössler in 1992, the company was restructured to a c.c., with the following members:
Mr U.W.H. Eisel, Mr G.B. Heitmann, Mr G.F. Rössler & Mr L.R.P. Zahradnicky
At this stage, Namibia attained independence from South Africa, and the company actively pursued direct representation for overseas manufacturers, whose products were previously purchased from a South African importer or distributor.
Radio Electronic now specialises in Marine Electronics, Radio and Satellite Communications and in importing and distributing various specialised electronic equipment lines in Namibia.
During the following years, the company expanded, and besides for the head office which is located in Walvis Bay, the main Namibian harbour town, a branch in Windhoek, the capital city, was also established.
From the Windhoek branch, the company provides mainly for the Land-mobile, Satellite Communication, HF-Radio, GPS, Inverter & Battery Charger markets, including rental of Satellite Telephones. The customer base in Windhoek consists mainly of Corporate and Government clients. From there, limited business with customers from Angola are also conducted.
