Telestar trade name used in Finland 1951-1956

In September 1944 Finland and Soviet Union ended up to intermediate peace agreement (WW II) (truce agreement). The agreement also included that German owned property in Finland, which had some direct or indirect connections to war operations here, had to be surrendered to Soviet Union.
There were about 35 companies, which this affected, and German AEG daughter company Sähkö Osakeyhtiö A.E.G., in Helsinki was one of those. Telefunken was included, because it was own group in Finnish AEG. Telefunken trade name was registered to Finnish AEG

In 1950 Finnish company Sähköliikkeiden Oy (SLOY) and (West) German AEG made a distributor agreement for Finland and co-operation began. At the same time similar agreement was made with  Telefunken Drahtlose Telegraphie m.p.H., Hannover.

Telefunken Trade name was registered in Finland by Sähkö Osakeyhtiö A.E.G (look at point 1.) and this company belonged to Soviet Union as told above. So Telefunken G.m.b.H. could not use their own “Telefunken trade name” in Finland.  New trade name TELESTAR was adapted for business, which happened via SLOY sales channels. Telestar in Finland was just a tradename, which was used for West Telefunken products during the time frame 1950 -1956 (1957).

Herzlichen Dank an Ake Nyholm für den hervorragenden und interessanten Bericht, der ohne seine umfangreichen Recherchen nicht möglich gewesen wäre.

Da hier auch die Firma Telefunken beteiligt ist, ist diese Geschichte für uns nicht weniger interessant. Daher gibt es auch eine Übersetzung in die deutsche Sprache.

Gruß F.H.
