Zack Radio Supply was started in 1931 by V.N. (Zack) Zachariah, a Lebanese Immigrant, during the heart of the depression. Zack's business flourished selling products from his storefront location on Market Street in San Francisco. Zack at that time was selling MRO (Maintenance, Repair, & Operations) products. In 1942 he sold many products to the military and "Radio Products" gave way to "Electronics" and the name of the company was changed. In 1946 Zack began focusing on Sales to the Broadcast field and shortly thereafter to Television Stations. A few years later, sales were expanded to the OEM Industrial Market Customer.
Zack's customers were the who's who of The Electronics Industry. Some of the notable customers included Mr. Dave Hewlett, Dalmo Victor, Steve Jobs, & Steve Wozniak. Stephen Barncard the famous record producer/engineer came to Zack Electronics regularly and bought RCA knobs and supplies to build the sound studio for the Grateful Dead (at Bob Weir’s Home in Mill Valley) and helped Jerry Garcia & Crosby, Stills & Nash find some of the electronics they needed from Zack to be used to advance their music careers.
Zack expanded & contracted over time and had locations in Palo Alto, Sacramento, Monterey, San Jose, Phoenix, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Zack retired in 1987 and at that time the company was purchased by an investor group led by Michael La Porte, an executive of Belden Electronics. A few years later in 1993, Zack Electronics & Data Communications was sold to Dennis Awad, President of Tele-Com Products, Inc., a successful entrepreneur, who had grown his own business since 1977 from his parents garage.
