Kenwood is a Japanese manufacturer of portable audio electronics – primarily radios, hi-fi stereo systems and amplifiers. They’re also a particularly popular brand for kettles and related electronic kitchen utilities.
Founded in 1946 in the wake of Japanese defeat in World War II, Kenwood has over the decades pioneered and researched all manner of audio technology. Much of the firm’s early trade was to state and private broadcasters. In the latter part of the 20th century, Kenwood switched to the mass production and sale of its digital systems to consumers worldwide.
Remaining a popular choice in miniaturised radio kits, Kenwood has continued to be a relevant presence in the 21st century, now employing well over 4,000 people.
