Name: Ben-Gal (Bengal); Rishon Le Zion    (IL)  
Abbreviation: ben-gal
Products: Model types

The company started production after the WWII and ceized in 60-ies.

The company name is Ben Gal, sometimes written as Bengal or Gen-Gal. Ben Gal was in the market from roughly 1945 till 1965. In the first years of the new-born state of Israel when not many could afford such commodity Ben Gal first assembled radios, later TV sets as well. Most parts were imported from Europe, like the loudspeaker which often have the stamp "NEOS" France. We don't know if the chassis was originated in Israel or if it was an assembly production.

This manufacturer was suggested by Dejan Dizdar.
