In 1950, company founder, Mac McPherson started the fledgling electronic service and repair business in the basement of his home, which was to later become Radar, Inc. The business was given the name Radar Electric Co. in 1959. In its early days, the company concentrated on repair, installation and service of marine electronics. As a side venture, Radar also sold parts to other individuals and businesses involved in the electronics industry. When F.B. Connolly Co., an electronic components distributor in Seattle, went out of business in 1964, Radar Electric purchased their remaining inventory and took over distribution of many of the product lines they had carried. McPherson, firmly set his sights on becoming Seattle's largest electronic components distributor.
Today, the company's goals have expanded. There are branch offices in three Pacific Northwest cities. A seasoned staff in each location offers the skill and experience to help guide your purchasing selections. Radar maintains modern inventory management and warehouse facilities that allow for same day shipping of stock product to destinations nationwide. Some 200 manufacturer's product lines fill the shelves. Radar still serves its customers by maintaining extensive product inventories and providing exceptional, proactive customer service
