Humble Beginnings

Founded by Jack O'Donnell in 1976, we have grown immensely from our humble beginnings as a parts supplier in Stirling St, Perth. Jack has built a company from an interest in electronics that sprouted at the age of 14 when he assembled his first electronic kit, a crystal set!

Jack started the 'supermarket' style electronics store, allowing customers to come in and browse the available parts and pick themselves. Previously, parts suppliers were primarily a "trade counter" attached to a warehouse where only staff had access to the parts. This often meant long waits for customers, only to be informed the part they wanted was out of stock!

Jack also saw the potential for a WA based mailorder service for parts, allowing customers to take advantage of the eastern states time difference to order late in the day and still receive parts the next day via air freight. A benefit that customers can still take advantage of today.

In the mid-80's Altronics had truly outgrown its small Stirling St premises, and Jack began the process of combining the wholesale and retail divisions of the company in one central location. And so the head office at 174 Roe St, Perth was built. Where the head office still resides to this day.

Since that time, we have expanded our operations to include bulk warehouses in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, plus having out-grown the Roe St warehouse, we expanded to a new warehouse in Balcatta in 2010.

The retail arm has also provided us with significant growth, from a single store from 1976 to 2004, we have added another 4 stores in just 8 years and hope to add more in the future.
