Elton (brand), Helsingborg.

Brand name established by the company Concentra (H. C. Augustin) in Helsingborg. Propably in late 1932. It is likely that the brand was registered as a separate company "Elton radio AB". This company (and possibly also Concentra) was liquidated in 1935 (date unknown). It is known that a photo- and radiostore called Hefoma (Helsingborgs Fotografiska Magasin) approached the trustee of Elton in liquidation to make some kind of deal about the brand and/or the productionfacilities. It is possible that the last known Elton radio (type 31 of 1935-36) was manufactured under the direction of Hefoma but it has not been securely proved.

Production: 1932 -

This manufacturer was suggested by Anders Söderström.
