Rauland is an American company based in Mount Prospect, Illinois that produces school intercoms and healthcare products. Rauland was founded in 1922 by inventor E. Norman Rauland. In 1924, he became a pioneer in the radio broadcast industry by launching his own, Chicago-based radio station, WENR. Throughout the Great Depression, Rauland manufactured power amplifiers and equipment for public address systems. During this time, the Rauland Company won government contracts to produce radio and communication systems for the military. In 1941, Norm Rauland and George Borg entered a partnership, changing the history of the company. The Rauland Corporation acquired the Webster-Chicago Corporation, a leader in school communications, and Rauland became established as the dominant supplier of internal school communications systems. In 1948, Norm Rauland and George Borg started a new company, Rauland-Borg Corporation, continuing the sound and communications business.
