  Company Profile

CONRAC PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE

Founded in 1939 by L.W. Conrow and G.L. Carrington, the name Conrac was derived by combining letters from their respective names - "CON" from Mr. Conrow and "RAC" ("CAR" spelled backwards) from Mr. Carrington.

From its first manufacturing facility located in Glendora, California, Conrac quickly earned a reputation for innovative, quality products.  In 1947 Conrac began production of it's Fleetwood brand of custom television receivers under the name of Peyton Manufacturing Company and in the early 1950's, Conrac partnered with the major television networks to pioneer development of broadcast studio monitors culminating in the introduction of the first color studio monitor in 1954.

In 1962, the company was merged with the Giannini Controls Corporation, but continued to market under the Conrac name.  Giannini continued to expand by acquiring a number of diverse companies and ultimately changed its name to the Conrac Corporation.  Throughout the 1960's and 70's, Conrac's uncompromising commitment to research and development yielded a number of industry firsts such as:

bullet The first intelligent computer terminal
bullet The first color display monitor designed specifically for the process control market
bullet The first multi-scan rate color graphics monitor
bullet The first ultra-high resolution large screen CAD/CAM display
bullet The first Autotrak™ professional Personal Computer display
