The company was established in the late 1960s and was incorporated in March 1972 by the founder and our chairman Tony Tyler. The family business is managed today by Mark Tyler, the son of the Tony, with his wife Kendal and their son Kristian, who run the sales of the business; taking Steepletone into their Third Generation. Additionally we have a great, experienced team of individuals that complete the Steepletone family.
Steepletone’s UK Head Office is in the village of Croughton, on the South Northamptonshire/Oxfordshire border. This is only 4 miles from the M40 motorway, and close to Bicester Village Shopping. In the early years of trading we were manufacturing record players right here in the UK, in an old converted cinema in a village just 12 miles from the head office today.
In the 1980s Steepletone moved its manufacturing to the Far East to remain competitive in the market place. An office was formed in central Hong Kong, which plays a significant role in maintaining product development, design, packaging, production and of course, the important role of Quality Control; to ensure our products are reliable from the minute you open the box.
Today, Steepletone is all about innovation and not imitation. We strive to bring new and exciting products to the market place that have never been done before, or takes a modern twist on old classics. We pride ourselves on being market leaders and the best of what we do, we take care of our products and our customers and believe that is why we are still here today 50 Years later….. and counting.
