Nederlandsche Radiowerken (NRW) was founded in 1924 in Doorn by Ir. Willem Frederik de Mol van Otterloo. Later he became a partner with Dr. Frederik Lodewijk Rutgers.

From the year 1926 NRW was located at the Pieterskerkhof 17 in Utrecht in the former factory of the Eerste Nederlandsche Electro-Magnetische Uurwerkenfabriek Utrecht (ENEM). The activities of the ENEM were taken over by NRW.
In addition to radios, the company also made rectifiers, coil sets, time switches, loudspeakers and transformers.
NRW made radios from 1924 until about 1931. After 1927, the brand name "Rumol", an amalgamation of the surnames of the founders, was used.
Conflicts with Philips over licenses in the period 1929 - 1930 were the reason that in 1932 the company eventually went bankrupt. In 1934 it was dissolved.
