Electro-technology company operating throughout Australia to deliver installation, maintenance and manufacturing services from inception to replacement.

Celebrating 100 years of NilsenSince 1916

A postal service error lead to Nilsen’s creation of Radio 3UZ

When a mysterious package of radio broadcasting parts was accidently delivered to the Nilsen offices in 1920, the staff enjoyed experimenting with the equipment too much to give it up. Inspired by his staff’s enthusiasm, company manager Oliver John Nilsen acquired Victoria’s first commercial broadcasting licence and the Voice of Victoria began broadcasting on March 25th, 1925.

For the next sixty years the station achieved consistent top ratings across the nation as "The Greater 3UZ." The station was always ahead of trends, adopting a highly successful Top 40’s format in the early 1960s and boasting a line-up of entertainment legends such as Bert Newton, Happy Hammond, Graham Kennedy and Don Lane.
