Summary:

The brand "Aetherkruiser" was introduced in 1938 at the "Jaarbeurs" fair in Utrecht. A Dutch trading firm named "Algemene Nederlandsche Radio Unie (ANRU) N.V" showed its first Dutch product at that time, the receiver Aetherkruiser AK380.

All Aetherkruiser sets were manufactured at the factory Van der Heem, The Hague.

Aetherkruiser founder was J.M.F.A. van Dijk. The Aetherkruiser and ANRU activities were directed from his residence in Amersfoort, Van Limburg Stirumlaan 20. Also the "Natuurkundig Laboratorium" en de Service facilities were located there.

After WW2 the company moved to Amsterdam, Keizersgracht 450.

ANRU stopped the Aetherkruiser activities in 1953. Mr Van Dijk found more promising business opportunities at that time in the Marine Navigation Instruments business.
