"Finlux" is a brand of consumer electronic related products, ranging from radio receivers to plasma televisions and DVD players.
It was also the name of two companies: "Iskumetalli Oy" in Lohja, and "Turun TV-tehdas A/B" in Turku that owned the brands ASA, Finlux, Luxor and Salora.

Over the years the brand name has been owned by several international companies.

Founded: 1971
Production: 1971 -
The name "Finlux" first appeared in 1964 when "Iskumetalli Oy" began marketing TV sets with that brand name after being acquired by the Finnish Lohja conglomerate (Lohja Oy, Turku).
Since 1947 "Iskumetalli Oy" was owned by "Lohjan Kalkkitehdas" and started in 1949 manufacturing of "Luxor" radios under licence.
In 1971 it was renamed "Finlux" - this was the first time that "Finlux" had been used as a company name.
As of 2009 the brand is owned by the Turkish electronics manufacturer "Vestel" as "Oy Vestel Scandinavia Ab / Finlux" in Järvenpää.

This manufacturer was suggested by Lasse Nirhamo.
