“Connectivity. Engineering. Responsibility"
Uniden is a Japanese company formed in 1966 which became famous in the 1970s for their CB radios, as a direct result of the CB radio boom when CB radio was permitted its use as a hobby in 1975 – a change in legislation that was taken up by Hollywood movies such as Smokey and the Bandit and many more.
By 1979 Uniden had expanded to the USA to form The Uniden America Corporation. 1986 saw the registration of Uniden on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) and the Company’s plans for expansion grew.
As Uniden continued to extend its international operations, Uniden Australia and Uniden New Zealand were established in 1989. By 2000 The Uniden group of companies now has operations in North America, Europe, Asia, Japan, Australia and New Zealand which has enabled the 2016 celebration of 50 years of Global Excellence.
Uniden is the world’s largest manufacturer of wireless communication products. During the 1980s, Uniden became the world’s largest manufacturer of cordless telephones in addition to television satellite equipment, mobile radios, advanced marine electronics and radio scanners (Bearcat).
Uniden entered the Australian GPS market in 2004 and in 2011 they released a range of 80-Channel Ready* UHF CB Radios. Uniden was the first to introduce selectable channels, 3D Mapping into Car Navigation for Australia, 80 Channel UHF CB Radio into Australia.
