From an August 1928 article in "Radio Retailer and Jobber":

"B. Abrams, chief executive of the Emerson Radio and Phonograph Corporation, that nationally-operating radio distributing house, with headquarters and stock-rooms gigantic at 307-309 Sixth Avenue, New York City, announced exclusively to the Radio Retailer and Jobber, Monday, July 16th, that the Emerson Corporation had acquired outright, and for a term of years, the entire output of radio tubes of that veteran producer of radio audions de luxe, the Elektron Radio Corporation of Lynn, Massachusetts.

The Elektron Corporation is one of the greater and more representative of radio tube producers. It makes all types of AC, DC, rectifier and power tubes and is beginning to be a factor in that new art and science — television."

The article goes on to say that Elektron's annual tube output was two million tubes per year.
