Our heritage and the new direction

In July 2019 a British games and Jukebox entrepreneur, Alexander Walder-Smith, has acquired Rock-Ola from its former owner Glenn Streeter. He plans to revolutionize Rock-Ola’s market presence by manufacturing a brand new 45rpm vinyl Jukebox, which not only features a powerful state of the art speaker system but also offers music streaming from phones and tablets, thereby representing a unique blend of mid-century styling and 21st century technology. Streeter will stay on for the next two years and help expand its range beyond Jukeboxes into more home entertainment and recreational room products.

An old transatlantic friendship

Alexander Walder-Smith was born into the Jukebox business as his Father, Reginald, had hundreds of Rock-Ola Jukeboxes hired out in bars and pubs across the United Kingdom. The relationship with Rock-Ola goes back to the 1950’s, when Reginald first visited Chicago, and  Alexander has been working closely with Glenn for almost 20 years. During this time he not only became the British Rock-Ola distributor but also restored and resold a great many of the company’s classic early machines. 

Walder-Smith said “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I am pleased to be working with Glenn and the long-standing team at Rock-Ola as we take the company towards its centenary. This is one of America’s great brands, up there with Harley Davidson and Jack Daniels, and as we move into the exciting next stage we’ll be dramatically raising its profile across the world. Using our expertise in these products and knowledge of marketing we will capitalize on the vinyl trend and introduce the only authentic American manufactured 45rpm vinyl Jukebox to the world”
