Alfred George Healing started manufacturing bicycles in Bridge Road Richmond, Melbourne in 1907. Radio manufacture started in 1922 and the "Golden Voice" brand was introduced in 1925. At this time Healing were the importers and distributors of Atwater Kent receivers, which ceased in 1930 with the increase in import tariffs.
