Harry Booth (August 21, 2002): AWA was created in 1913 by the merger of Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Co. Ltd (Australia) and the Australian Wireless Company (the local Telefunken lisencee). This merger was partly dictated or at the least encouraged by the Australian government which had a financial interest in the company.
The company was active in making radios, hi-fi equipment, broadcast equipment and PA systems at the least into the early 80's. They were one of the pioneers of the microgroove disks in the 1940's and the first company to make low noise 78'rpm pressings. Also made products sold using the Fisk and Radiola brands.
By the 80's they had become a holding company with interests in Casino and IT services and changed it's name to AWA Limited in 1988.
