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. During the 1930s and 1940s at least, the factory address was 167-173 Franklin St. Melbourne.
During World War Two Healing produced equipment for the armed forces, including radar equipment. In 1956 they started the manufacture of television sets. In 1959 the electronics division became part of Rank Industries but continued manufacturing consumer electronics. The Healing brand is still in use.

This manufacturer was suggested by Wolfgang Scheida.
