Summary:

Dixons, UK. Retailer of electric and electronic goods.

Dixons had subsidiaries in other countries than UK, e.g. in Belgium.

Founded: 1937
History:
Started as a photographic studio in 1937 by Charles Kalms in Southend. Sometimes after WW2 the business changes and the company was taoken over by his son Stanley Kalms. Dixons Electrical stores are found in many locations but recently (August 2008) rebranded Currys. The Internet site however is maintaining the brand Dixons.
During the 1980s, some Matsui televisions were rebranded Ferguson sets made in the UK by Thorn-EMI or, later, Thomson Electronics . [ citation needed ] Since Dixons and Currys are owned by the Dixons Retail Group , some Matsui products are identical to items using DSG's Saisho and Logik brands.

This manufacturer was suggested by Francisc VISKY.
