R.T. Grim Electronics was founded in September 1928 in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania when Russel T. Grim and his brothers opened a radio sales and service business. In 1928, the Great Depression took the wind out of sales and R.T. Grim Electronics focused on radio service and radio parts (tubes, etc.) sales. After World War II, the company became involved in a new national craze – radios installed in automobiles. Then came the next milestone in electronics, the introduction of black and white television. The company has continued to expand into the sales of automotive electronics and servicing of many of the new electronic technologies that have come along since then.
Under the direction of the owner and president, Robert Grim, the business was located at 1845 Market Street in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania next to the original building where the business was founded. Due to the growth of products and services provided to our customers, the Camp Hill operation moved in January of 1999 to a 41,000 square foot facility at 3925 Trindle Road in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania. The corporate office and main facility are housed at this location.
The business was purchased in 2017 by Michael Wentz, an employee since 1982, essentially keeping the business “family” owned. In 2018, the company discontinued the repair of home electronics products. The focus now is squarely on our core business – Automotive Electronics Sales, Service and Installation.
R.T. Grim Electronics has been serving industry and consumer needs since 1928. While our primary customers have been in the automotive industry, we have also provided services for the major players in the consumer electronics business.
