Summary:

Allied Radio Manufacturers.
Norfolk House, 374 Swanston Street, Melbourne, Victoria.

Allied Radio Manufacturers was formed in September 1932 by several Victorian radio manufactures to market their products direct to the public, thus reducing the cost by eliminating the duplication of distribution costs.[1]

They sold radios under their own brand of Star and Windsor along with Essanay radios.[2]

By mid 1933 advertising had ceased.
