International Ham Stores Group
Radio Communications for Hobbyist to Business Professional Under One Roof
Waters & Stanton, Nevada Radio & InnovAntennas, three of the UKs leading Ham Radio retailers and manufacturers have come together to form the “International Ham Stores Group” operating from a combined showroom and distribution centre at Portsmouth.
The combined power of the three companies undoubtedly makes them Europe’s largest Amateur radio conglomerate. Group Operations Director Justin Johnson G0KSC said “We are excited at the prospect of working in partnership,to bring new products and un-paralleled service to the Hobby Radio enthusiast and professional alike. We have ambitious plans for growth and new ideas to engage with our loyal customer base. We will also be appealing to new customers that may not have considered our individual group members in the past, adding value with the vastly increased product range that the “IHSG” group will offer.
The three companies continue to trade under their own names, but combine resources for logistics, marketing, repairs and customer service to streamline costs and overheads to provide a more competitive ‘one stop shop’ solution for their customers.
