This company was very innovative and the first one in Norway who started with the production of 220 Volt Radio's. Earlier all radio's works only with a battery. The fabric was really very succesfully and after a short time it needs to enlarge.

In 1968 Radionette moves to a new production hall Sandvika, later known as Info-Rama.
