Our founder, a qualified engineer and licenced amateur radio operator, unable to find the aerial fixing hardware he required in the market, designed and built his own. News spread and soon he was developing other systems for fellow amateurs with the same problem. By 1983 a part-time business was formally launched and ‘Barenco’ started trading around the UK at radio rallies. Our presence in the market attracted commercial business as well as amateurs.
By 1988 the hobby had become a commercial business and required a full time employee. As the business expanded, so did the range of products, and Barenco became recognised as one of the major manufacturers and supplier of hardware, cable and connectors to the communications industry.
Over 25 years later and we continue to manufacture our own hardware in house to a high standard and offer a bespoke design & engineering service. We have developed an extensive range of RF connectors in the UK and have the facilities and capability of designing new connectors to help improve performance and fit specific applications.
We have grown substantially over the years, however, Barenco strives to provide high quality products whilst maintaining competitive prices and a helpful and friendly service.
