Throughout 2017, Freedman Electronics, the parent company of Rode Microphones, is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Over the course of five decades, the company has seen its ups and downs as it transitioned from a small pro audio shop and PA installer founded by Henry and Astrid Freedman, who emigrated from Sweden, into one of Australia’s most successful manufacturers and exporters.
