The Le Mans factory was built by Schneider ca 1959-60, and in 1971 La Radiotechnique joined in using the facilities. Le Mans produced radio and TVs (from parts to PCBs to assembly and QC), and May 1969 has seen the millionth Schneider TV exiting the plant.

To clarify the time line: Some time during the 1980''s TV production is Suresnes was discontinued, but as can be seen from the production dates (also contained in the serial number or on separate stickers) they were already producing computers back then.

The Schneider brand probably became Philips owned some time in the 1970''s, while the Radiola brand was already owned by RTC when Philips aquired them in 1931.

I''m pretty sure Philips was the owner of RTC since the 1930''s. Both TV sets and computers (Videopac series, early MSX models) were manufactured in Suresnes (serial number starting with S or SF) while Le Mans manufactured mobile phones (serial number starting with VY). I don''t know what products were made in Le Mans before the 1990''s, though.

Ho un esemplare di produzione francese di questo computer perfettamente funzionante, devo dire per˛ che Ŕ un p˛ limitato, ha un layout simile allo Spectrum, purtroppo non ho documentazione che lo riguardi, c''Ŕ qualcuna che possa aiutarmi?
