Binatone is a British telecommunications company. Binatone was started in the United Kingdom in 1958 to import and distribute consumer electronics by two brothers, Gulu Lalvani and Partap Lalvani.
In 1983 Binatone was the first in Europe with fixed line consumer products that could be bought at electronics retailers. This marked the beginning of a gradual change from Binatone's focus on Audio & Vision to Telecom products.
In 2008, Dino Lalvani, son of Gulu Lalvani, purchased the company from his father and took over as Chairman.
