Videocolor was a fabricant of Electronic components in Anagni (Italy).
Was formed from an Italian CRT Fabricant called ERGON which was sold to Thomson in 1971 and the technology further called PIL (Precision In Line) was produced by a collaboration with RCA.
In 2005 Videocolor was sold to Videocon An Indian conglomerate (Ouch !) wich has converted it to Plasma Lcd (Crap) manufacturing, resulting in a total FAIL !!
Videocolor Spa was one of the leading companies of the Thomson group, until the company shut down in 2005. The factory turned out tens of millions of cathode ray tubes. It was one of the biggest companies in the region, which, in the 1990s, still employed over 2500 workers. Then the plasma screens arrived. “Nearly 100% of the market,” noted Domenico De Santis, the provincial secretary of the CGIL. “In 2004-2005, Thomson chose to abandon the sector throughout the world,” said Giacomo Di Giulio, a CGIL shop steward. The company was “given away, with a dowry of nearly 180 million euros, to Videocon, an Indian group,” he continued. “The money was to be used to relaunch the company.” Several projects were to be developed: the development of a plasma screen prototype to be manufactured later on, the production of air conditioners, and the assembly of television sets using imported parts. In the end, the only project implemented was the assembly of TV sets. “The shareholders decided, at one point, that it was no longer suitable to engage in this sort of production in Europe,” Domenico De Santis emphasized.
Rancor towards the authorities.
At the beginning of the year, Videocon turned down government financial aid to convert the factory. In fact, “Thomson was to sell off the premises. And since the operation implied not only costs, but above all damage to their brand image, they decided to have the ‘Indians’ do the job,” Giacomo Di Giulio concluded. “In relation to Thomson, we felt colonized,” Ludovico Chiodo, a worker, confided in more down-to-earth terms. “They used our professional resources, both Italian and ciociares (a region in Frosinone province – editor’s note) for thirty years.”
Now Videocolor has Stopped the production, it' gone (Forever) !!
