Founded in 1920 by Christopher Collaro in London, it moved to Barking, Essex in 1924. The company became well-known for one-piece spring motors for gramophones and later electric gramophone motors. After the war, they started producing record players and accessories under their brand. In 1960 the company was acquired by the American corporation Magnavox.
