History of Motorola


Motorola started in Chicago, Illinois, as Galvin Manufacturing Corporation (847 West Harrison Street) in 1928 when brothers Paul V. and Joseph E. Galvin auctioned Stewart Battery Company's battery and equipment removal auction plans for $ 750. Galvin Manufacturing Corporation opened a store in a small part of a rented building. The company had $ 565 in working capital and five employees. The first week's salary was $ 63.

The company's first products were battery chargers, devices that allowed battery powered radios to work with household electricity. Due to advances in radio technology, the battery consumer was soon obsolete. Paul Galvin learned that some radio engineers installed the kits in the car and challenged his engineers to design a cheap car radio that could be installed in most vehicles. His team was successful, and Galvin was able to demonstrate a working radio model by the Radio Manufacturers Association Convention of June 1930 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. He took home enough orders to keep the company running.

Paul Galvin wanted a brand for the new Galvin Manufacturing Corporation car radio and created the name "Motorola" by connecting "engine" (to the car) to "ola" (from Victrola), which was also a popular end to many Companies at that time , eg. Moviola, Crayola. The company sold its first Motorola branded radio on June 23, 1930 to Herbert C. Wall of Fort Wayne, Indiana for $ 30. Wall became one of the first Motorola distributors in the country. The name of the Motorola brand became so well-known that Galvin Manufacturing Corporation later changed its name to Motorola, Inc.

Galvin Manufacturing Corporation began selling Motorola car radio receivers to the police and municipal departments in November 1930. The company's first public security customer (all in the US state of Illinois) included the River Forest Village, a Bellwood Police Department, Evanston Police, Illinois State Police and Cook County Police ( Chicago area) with one-way radio communication. 

The same year, the company built its research and development program with Dan Noble, a pioneer in FM radio and semiconductor technology, which became a member of the company as research director. The company produced the portable AM SCR-536 radio during World War II, which was of vital importance to allied communication. Motorola became 94th among US companies in value of World War II military production contracts.
