Summary:

The name Conrac was derived by combining letters from the names of its two original founders, CON from Mr. Conrow and RAC ("Car" spelled backwards) from Mr. Carrington. From its first manufacturing facility located in Glendora, California, Conrac quickly earned a reputation for innovative, quality products. In 1947 Conrac began manufacturing the Fleetwood brand of custom television receivers under the name of Peyton Manufacturing Company.

In the early 1950's, Conrac pioneered the development of broadcast studio monitors, introducing the first color studio monitor in 1954. In 1962, the company was merged with the Giannini Controls Corporation, but continued to market under the Conrac name. Source: Conrac website
