Allied Electronics announces rebrand as Allied Electronics & Automation

January 3, 2018 – Allied Electronics announced that the company will begin operating under a new trade name and will be known as Allied Electronics & Automation, effective immediately. The company’s ownership and staff have not changed.

The company was founded in 1928 in Chicago, Illinois as Allied Radio, the distribution arm of Columbia Radio Corporation. The company changed its name to Allied Electronics in 1961 to reflect its move into industrial sales. In 1970, the company moved to Fort Worth, Texas, after Tandy Radio purchased the company. In 1999, Electrocomponents of London, England, purchased Allied. Today, Allied Electronics & Automation and its sister company, RS Components, also based in London, England, represent the trading brands of Electrocomponents, plc, the global distributor for engineers.
