One of JMM Lee's most diverse and storied brands, the Packard-Bell name has appeared on countless consumer electronic goods since its introduction in 1933.
Packard's early success was due to a manufacturing agreement with radio pioneer RCA, which enabled Packard-Bell to produce consumer radios under the RCA brand. Packard-Bell later branched out on its own, becoming one of the top radio manufacturers on the United States.
Packard Bell radios had a distinguishable styling: The tuning dial showed the call signs of American and Canadian radio stations west of the Rocky Mountains, allowing the user to easily locate his desired station.
Packard-Bell entered other consumer electronics lines of business, including television manufacturing, and later, the home computer market. In the 1980s and 90s Packard grew into one of the top PC manufacturers in North America.
The Packard Bell brand still enjoys wide consumer recognition and is a good fit for any consumer electronic product.
