History of Tandberg

Norwegian based Tandberg was founded by Vebjorn Tandberg as Tandbergs Radiofabrikk (Tandberg's radio factory) in Oslo in 1933. During the early years, radios, loudspeakers and microphones were the main output from the factory. The company's first radio was named "Tommeliten", and used only earphones. In 1934 the first "Huldra" radio was launched, followed in 1936 by the "Sølvsuper". The Sølvsuper and the Huldra radios became the foundation for Tandberg's success.

The factory also started producing TV sets in the 60’s and color TV's were added to Tandberg’s lineup in 1969. In 1972 Tandberg purchased Radionette, another large Norwegian electronics firm that was focused on televisions. By 1976, TV's were Tandberg's major product and their factories employed 3,500 workers. In that same year the company was seriously affected by a major economic downturn and by 1978 it was insolvent. Vebjorn Tandberg was removed from control of the company and committed suicide in August. In December the company declared bankruptcy.

In the aftermath of the bankruptcy the original Tandberg was split into three parts. The television manufacturing portions became Tandberg Television, Tandberg Data took over the tape recording side of the company and moved it purely into the computer storage field and the remaining portions lost the "Radiofabrikk" to become, simply, Tandberg.

In April 2007, Tandberg Television was acquired by Ericsson. Tandberg Television operated as an independent entity within the Ericsson Business Unit Multimedia until January 25, 2010, when its name was changed to Ericsson Television, Ltd.
