History of GPO
The original GPO Telephones were produced by the General Post Office in the UK from the advent of the telephone in the mid-19th century, right up to the late 20th Century whilst the telephone network was still a publicly run service. Within that one hundred and fifty year period the GPO released a huge amount of memorable and sturdy phones designed for everyday use which were eventually discontinued as the company was turned into a private corporation in the 1980s and technology moved on to satisfy a demand for cheaper products.
Our Mission and Vision
Retro design inspires everything we do, but our love of modern innovation powers us. Our products are inspired by the retro theme, but created with care.
A fresh and innovative addition to the retail market, ProTelX (creators of the original GPO brand) was established in September 2009 with the aim of designing, developing and manufacturing high quality consumer retro products.
GPO are specialists in bespoke manufacturing projects to meet specific needs to classic, yet contemporary retro inspired consumer goods.
These products are something you choose to add colour to your life; you want one because it’s nostalgic and cool. You keep it because it’s fun and enjoyable.
