Our History

Diversified Electronics, Inc. is a family owned and operated business that began when CEO John V. Thornton bought the business in April 1986 after having worked with the previous owner for fifteen (15) years. Johns career initially began with Motorola where he worked for nine years. His position as Motorolas Southeastern & Southwestern Parts Manager helped him launch his new business. Now, twenty-five (25) years after he purchased it, Diversified Electronics is one of four fast growing divisions. The company and its sister companies have grown and expanded over the years and currently have over 80 employees in four locations in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina with three professionally staffed service centers. John and his sons, Johnny and Chris, manage the Diversified sales and service centers and two divisions; Diversified Electronics of South Carolina, and Racing Radios. John is also a managing partner in SPEARLabs, LLC. 

In 1988 Diversified Electronics, Inc. became one of the first to sell the Radius product line which targeted smaller commercial markets and in 1991 Diversified Electronics became a Charter full line Motorola dealer, selling two-way radios, pagers, and replacement parts. Diversified Electronics’ sales team has achieved membership for 20 of its 25 years in the Motorola Pinnacle Club, which recognizes the top dealers in the United States, and top performer in the nation award in 1993, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2010. 

Diversified Electronics looks forward to bringing to our customers proven products and professional services and lives by the motto Do it right the first time.
