Seymour (Arbroath) Ltd., West Mill Wynd, Arbroath, Angus

Seymour appear to have been formed immediatly after World War Two and made an attempt to enter the TV market in 1949 at time when they had just relocated from Manchester to Angus in Scotland. It is not clear if their one and only television made it into production and the company went into liquidation in May the following year.

In around January 1952 the Seymour name was aquired by Fife Radio and Television.

Many small manufacturers popped up around this time with many of them utilising a standard Plessey chassis, however it appears Seymour designed and produced their own television chassis.
