Empire Vacuum Products - CRT Rebuilding Plant

This CRT rebuilding plant was started in 1955-56 in Pacoima, California by Dennis Posten. He built all of the ovens and racks. The plant operated until 1962 when it went bankrupt. Tubes were rebuilt under the names Galaxy MK7 and Empire.

Dennis Posten lived from 1923 to 2004. He was a decorated World War II B24 Liberator bomber pilot.

His Son Bruce donated these photos to the museum.
