Born from a successful career in electronics, hydraulics and automation, Henry Burden started Burden Electronics over 40 years ago specialising in the rental, servicing and repair of TV sets.
Based on the founders insistence on know-how and meticulous servicing, his first rate service soon became so popular that he took workshop premises on the present site at 160 County Road.
Joined by his son Randolph Burden in 1974 due to the increasing demand for colour television sets, Burden Electronics entered a new era. And the new partnership soon expanded from its workshop base into a new retail showroom at the front of the building.
Opened on the 20th December 1976, the shop boasted a complete range of TV sets, radios, record players, cassette decks and music centres, at the time we also offered smaller equipment including irons, hairdryers and other accessories such as headphones and microphones.
From this date Burdens Electronics has moved from strength to strength continuing to offer an unrivalled service for TV's and other entertainment products we now offer a full selection of Domestic Appliances, Home Cinema systems, Commercial audio and Video solutions (including CCTV) and Multi-Room Hi-fi.
Although the service department has moved to alternative premises, Burden's shop is still situated in the building at 160 County Road. But reassuringly, the one thing that hasn't changed over the years is Burden's dedication to prompt and efficient attention to ensure complete customer satisfaction. This was backed up in 2006 when we were presented with Domestic & Generals Independent Retailer of the year award. (http://126.96.36.199/media-centre/press-releases/retailer-of-year-2005.html)
