Electron Corporation is a Joint-Stock Company, its shares were registered in Ukraine under №1. Today “Electron” is developing dynamically as a machine building corporation. “Electron” corporation and its enterprises are old and reliable partners of many Ukrainian and foreign companies.
The history of “Electron” began in 1918 with the founding of Lviv electrical enterprise “Contact” – one of the first electrotechnical enterprises in Halychyna (production of electrical appliances, electricity meters, electric motors and products based on them, telephones and switchboards, electrical products, electrical fittings, etc.).
In the 1950s the rise of Lviv television factory began. By resolution of the Council of National Economy in Lviv economic region №57 of October 4, 1957 based on “Contact” company Lviv Television Factory was established. Director of the factory became S. Petrovskyi. The first TV brand “Lviv” came off the assembly line on Oct. 2, 1957. TV “Lviv” was the first one to use cathode ray tube of 43 cm (developers: design – K. Shnitser, concept – A. Yuker). In 1960 a new production model – “Verkhovyna” was created. It was recognized as the best TV set in the USSR.

It was corporatized by the classical and transparent methodology developed with the participation of British experts and scientists from Lviv, in particular, prof. V. Pynzenyk. Shares of JSC “Concern-Electron” are registered in the Ministry of Finance with the № 1. “Electron” founded one of the first regional commercial banks in Ukraine – “Electron Bank” (Registered by National Bank of Ukraine in 1991, under the № 25), and which has become one of the leading banks in the country (now – JSC “Volksbank”).
