Name: Barlow-Wadley; South Africa    (ZA)  
Abbreviation: barlow

Pieter de Kock: Local manufacturers of radios mostly were 'assemblers' in South Africa. So Philips had some local development and manufacture. Also 'Tedelex' manufacturing Matsushita under license, Sony too possibly. The Barlow Wadley, using circuitry developed by Dr TK Wadley (a South African, inventor of the Tellurometer), was made locally by the Barlows group who were also involved in making Sony and/or Matsushita under licence.

Also: Barlows Television Company; 29 Shepstone Road, New Germany 3600, Division of Barlows Manufacturing Company Limited (1977).
