If you look carefully at the badge above, you'll see the letters REC in the middle. The Rotor Electric Company was headquartered at 123 Bentworth Avenue in Toronto and manufactured a wide variety of electric appliances for the home market: transformers, toasters, heaters, blenders, cooking utensils, car warmers, exercisers, fans, humidifiers, hair dryers, battery chargers, cabinets for TV sets and record players. From 1954 to 1960, it supplied a lot of equipment to Admiral for the production of TV sets.
The "Torcan" trademark is now owned by Matsushita Seiko Co., Ltd. of Osaka, Japan.
I would. Love to know more of rotor electric. My father was there from the start and designed most of the early stuff. It was started by Benjamin Benny
I have a stereo and separate speaker system. Serial no# 1126 and no 1262. If you can tell me ANYTHING about these pieces I would really appriciate it. Thank you
I can't help you, but maybe the folks on the antique radio forum can. There'a link to their forum under the image of the phonograph above.
I am still using the Electric Refrigerator and Freezer Defroster in my 1955 refrigerator. I bought it in 1969.
(Your comment is from a few years ago) but I'd like to know more too! I'd certainly like to know ornsee what some of your father's early designs were. I might have a Torcan fan that he designed!
I have the original torcan box fan that’s green with the rocker 2 speed switch and the motor was made by McMullen electric in Toronto
Thanks for the feedback. McMullen electric, another company to research!
