SINCE 1934

Admiral Corporation Of America

Admiral Corporation Inc. is best known worldwide for its home appliances and electronics. The company was originally known as the Transformer Corporation of America and by 1929 it was the biggest supplier of radio parts in the world. The Great Depression of 1929 took its toll and Ross D Siragusa, our founder, was forced to declare bankruptcy. Later in 1934 he purchased the “Admiral” trademark which went on to officially become Admiral Corporation America Inc., in 1936.

Admiral’s global operations started in 1946 with the opening of its factory in Toronto - Canada with subsequent regions entities in Mexico, Italy, Taiwan and India. By 1966 the company had over 14,000 staff with operations in 110 countries.

On 30-Dec-1953, Admiral America introduced the world's first ever Colour Television, the C1617A at a cost of $1,175 which is $11,747 in 2022. By the 60s’ colour televisions were the must-have electronics product and Admiral’s overall sales revenue sky-rocketed to a whopping $414 million in 1966!

Admiral went on to introduce 75 innovations in designs, production and marketing of home appliances, and radio and TV sets. Please refer to the company’s History Timeline and Product History below for more information.

In 2019, with the launch of Admiral America Energy Inc., the company ventured into e-Mobility, Charging Solutions and Energy Management Systems.
