Advance Instruments; Hainault, Essex, England. This is Division of Advance Electronics Limited.

The company was started by A.W. Stapleton in his garden shed. Advance Components Ltd. was formed on 24th March 1932, initially producing radio components, RF chokes, and small sub assemblies, and soon entered the field of electronic test equipment. In 1956 it moved from Walthamstow to larger premises in Hainault, Essex, and the company went public. The name was changed to Advance Electronics in 1964, and about 1968 it moved to a new factory in Bishops Stortford, and a factory was also opened in Wrexham to manufacture capacitors.
The main activities were the manufacture of test equipment, metallised film capacitors, power supplies, constant-voltage transformers. They were one of the leaders in designing counting and control equipment for industry including digital voltmeters.
In 1968 they had distributors in 34 countries. In about 1973 they were bought by Gould of the USA and continued to trade as Gould Advance Ltd.

This manufacturer was suggested by Peter Steffen.
