Almost all the electric parts were made by VLM Components. VLM Components was founded in 1945 in Buccinasco, a small village near Milan, Italy. VLM Components is part of the Relco Group, founded in 1967. Today they are the owners of the brands Relco, Leuci, Relco Lighting, VLM Components and Segno. VLM Components became famous for the switches they produce which were designed by Achille Castiglioni in 1968.
The switch is made by Acciarri, another Italian company. Acciarri is an Italian family name, mostly found on the east coast of the country. Nothing to be found about this company, it must be long gone. Acciarri also produced switches and other electric parts for Reggiani, the famous Italian lightning company. Also Massive from Belgium used Acciarri parts, and so did many other companies.
