AWA Marine are Leaders in Marine Electronics, and our origins can be traced back over 100 years.
We have a long and proud history in Electronics, and continue to be at the forefront of Maritime Technology today.
Throughout the 20th century, AWA Marine has been one of Australia’s largest and most prominent electronics organisations.
AWA Marine has a long and proud history in Australian Electronics. It undertook the development, manufacture and distribution of Radio, Telecommunications, Television, Audio Equipment, and Broadcasting services.
At one stage in its history, AWA was one of the largest companies in Australia. However in the early 1980s, the company suffered a huge financial loss on the Foreign Exchange Market. This resulted in the company having to sell its various business units, in order to try and continue operating in the market.
In 1995 Ausmur Pty Ltd purchased the Maritime Division from AWA Defense Industries, and the company has been operating as a Family Owned and Operated Business ever since.
Although AWA Marine has no association or business relationship with AWA Ltd today, we do share a very interesting past History with this company, as part of the old “AWA Empire” in Australia.
We are extremely proud of our past connection with such an incredible Innovator. We’re also proud of the company’s impressive history since its original foundation in 1909.
AWA Ltd was undoubtedly one of the world’s most prominent and pioneering Electronics Companies, and we would like to share some of the history with you.
The company commenced operations in 1909 as Australasian Wireless Limited (AWL), a Telefunken wireless agent.
