Summary:

Philco sold radios in Australia under its own brand but manufactured by Email, formerly Emmco. See Emmco.

Founded: 1936
Closed: 1955
Production: 1936 - 1955
History:
Philco radios were imported from the USA up until 1930 when tariff restrictions made it uneconomic to source radios from there. In 1936 Philco Radio & Television Corporation (Aust.) Pty. Ltd. was formed and had their radios manufactured by Email, makers of Emmco brand radios.
After the war Email bought Airzone Ltd. and from 1948 Philco and Airzone branded radios used the same chassis. Production of radios ceased about 1955.

This manufacturer was suggested by Stuart Irwin.
