Name: Skantic Radio AB, Stockholm    (S)  
alternative name:
Skandinaviska Radio AB
Abbreviation: skantic

The company was started as "Skandinaviska Radio AB" ca 1934. First selling imported Philco radios but soon manufacturing their own. Due to financial troble it was bought by Luxor radio, Motala in 1945. The name was changed to Skantic radio AB ca 1953. From the late forties Skantic radios are Luxor products in different cabinets.

Both "Skandinaviska Radio AB; Sweden" and "Skantic Radio AB, Stockholm" are the same company at different times. The name was changed from the first to the later one in ca 1953. To prevent Scantic radios from beeing posted under both names we changed "Skandinaviska Radio AB; Sweden" to a code 9 company and continue Skantic only under "Skantic Radio AB, Stockholm". "Skandinaviska Radio AB; Sweden" and "Skantic Radio AB, Stockholm" did only import their radios under a few years and it is, to the best of our knowledge, not confirmed that they actually rebranded the Philcos they sold.

This manufacturer was suggested by Herbert Odermatt † 26.Nov.05.
