80 Years of Innovation

80 years ago, on the 9 May 1931 Multitone became an electronics business. Our company was the brain child of Joseph Poliakoff a Russian telephone and sound engineer as well as an inventor. Joseph Poliakoff fled Russia with his son Alexander in 1924 and came to London in the UK. He was most well known for his work with hearing aids, his most prestigious customer being Winston Churchill.

After graduating from University College London Alexander joined Multitone in June 1931 and became Chairman until his retirement in 1977.

As a company we have always been engineering specialists and our products have been utilised around the globe. The company, set up by the Poliakoffs has developed into a technology based organisation with a strong family feel.

As an organisation we are now looking at how we can expand our product range and utilise our understanding of messaging technology with other communication systems.

A communication system that is robust is key in all markets so we have a lot of scope for development.
