Summary:

Ediswan-Ekco (Australia) Pty. Ltd.
Yennora, Sydney (1956)
Nelson Road, Fairfield, Sydney (1957)

At least in 1957, sets bore the logo "AEI Ekco" and had a statement on the back "manufactured by Ediswan-Ekco (Aust.) Pty. Ltd. by arrangement with E.K. Cole Ltd. of England and Australian Electrical Industries Pty. Ltd. of Australia".

The factory seat in Yennora is most likely the same as the one in Fairfield, as Nelson Road runs close to the Yennora railway station and Yennora is a Syndney suburb adjacent to Fairfield. Today, Nelson Rd. is part of Yennora.
