Ladd Electronics was born
out of the minds of four college guys at The Kings College in NY.
Those four guys Larry, Arthur, Derrick, and Dorian, wanted to make
some extra money at school. The school rules required that any
“business” run out of the school be registered with
student development and have an official name. Thus the four boys
taking the initials of their first names became LADD Electronics.
While they did not stay together for long Larry Alkinburgh never
forgot those days. After he completed his tour with the US Coast
Guard, Larry came home to St. Johnsville, NY and started LADD
Electronics in a spare room on the back of his house. After a fire
(caused by a lightning strike) nearly destroyed his business he
moved across the street to a spare office in a neighbor’s
house and eventually purchased the building that Ladd Electronics
is now located in at 17. E Main St. Nelliston, NY.
Larry has built his
business of over 25 years by providing consistent customer service
while also remaining on the current edge of technology in the
electronics field. As one of the few true service providers left
today it is not unusual to see Larry out on installations and
service calls himself. Whether it is TV repair or the complex
installations of two-way satellite, Ladd Electronics can get it
done. Specializing in two way radio communications Ladd
Electronics also maintains 3 tower sites and provided
communications services for some of the areas most important
businesses including: Roosevelt’s Towing, Midvale
Veterinary, and Agway. For personal communications Ladd
Electronics now carries a full line of Nextel
products and rate plans as well as pagers and two-way radios
for business or personal use.
enjoys some time in the park with his grand daughter.
Ladd Electronics is a privately owned and family oriented
business. Larry’s wife, Marion, handles all the bookkeeping
and often is the person behind the counter helping out customers
as they stop in. His oldest son, Noah, while living in
Pennsylvania is very active in helping to maintain the
LaddElectronics.com website and Larry’s youngest son, Dale,
can be found helping out around the store maintaining the company
vehicles as well as out on the job site assisting with
installations. Ladd Electronics understands the importance of
family and that is how they view their loyal customers of so many
years. They are all just part of the family.
