Founded in 1948

Holmans was founded (as Holman Radio) by William Holman in 1948; it mainly charged accumulators and selling “wireless receivers”.


Two generations on, Gary and Steve Holman are our executive directors, maintaining Holmans as an independent family business. Although the products and technology have changed, the same friendly atmosphere has remained with well-trained and knowledgeable staff.
