20th Century Service (Now 21st Century Service) was started by Reginald (Reg) in 1927 at the forefront of the ‘Radio Days’, moving around the Sutton area he settled at no 264 High Street where he traded for 40 years.
Around 1930, Reg befriended The Pioneer of Television – John Logie Baird. John and Reg would fix radios in Reg’s workshop and they would drive up to John’s house at Box Hill in Reg’s Austin Seven.
In the 1950s my father ‘Reg’ had over fifteen radio engineers and a large rental business. Reg retired at the age of 75.
In 1983 we relocated to the existing premises at Burgh Heath. I am proud to continue in my father’s footsteps, keeping his old fashioned values.
