Default Who were ROLLAND?

I've just come across a Rolland A445RG Radiogram. A standard 5 valve, 3 waveband AM superhet from 1955. It uses a BSR UA6 3 speed autochanger. I suspect the same chassis may have been used for a table model. Does anyone know of this Company?

Hi Edward,

If you do a forum search, you’ll find half a dozen threads concerning their products. Seems to be a connection with Sobell.

Around 1969/70 my grandparents gave me their old rolland radiogram My mother told me my Grandparents moved into a brand new house in 1954 and they bought the radiogram from a well known store [Uptons] in Stockton on Tees. That's the only Rolland product i have ever seen
