In 1970, Michael Handley founded the business after working in the television industry. In 2014, Mr Handley retired and two of his employees, who have collectively over forty years experience, continued on trading as Handley Aerials. Vicky Ford and Paul Boothman (Barney) now share the role as Director and chose to relocate to Colne, where the business continues to flourish.

As of late, the company has 7 employees, including the branch in Leeds, and 6 vans.

All of our engineers are from the local area and have the NVQ Level 2 Electrical and Electronic servicing (Signal Reception). They all frequently receive excellent feedback from our customers, and are a huge asset to Handley Aerials.

The company is a member of the Confederation of Aerial Industries (CAI Plus) which promotes a high standard of workmanship and enforces strict regulation on the quality of equipment used. Our CAI registration number is C1163.
