RCA Victor Radio S.A., Av. Engº.Billings, 2229, S. Paulo. Records "A Voz do Dono" (His Master's Voice).


In addition to its strong presence in the music industry, RCA also gave important contributions in the technical area. Until 90s Brazil had strong restrictions on imported products and, as the internal market has always been significant, large business groups settled in the country. RCA was no exception and in 1957 installed in the state of Minas Gerais, a plant for vacuum tubes production. It was the second in the country, because since 1955 was also running the tube factory from Ibrape (Philips group). Both produced also TV picture tubes.

This manufacturer was suggested by Vitor Oliveira.
