REVO Company Background.

The company first rose to prominence in the 1930s but their founding is obscure. Apparently the company started off as Cable And Accessory, founded by Frederick Reeves, who was in partnership with Vaughan of VONO. Perhaps he renamed his own company REVO to emphasise the link.

In a 1960s advert, REVO mentioned their pride of 50 years of electrical achievement, suggesting the firm was founded in 1910.

During the 1960s, and the huge mergers and consolidations, REVO became a third of Duport's holdings (the others being VONO and Duport Foundries Limited). As part of a major company, and as became common during the late 1960s, assets were transferred and sold, and REVO's streetlighting division was sold to Tubes Limited who sold and developed the range under the Relite name.

It isn't known what happened to the remainder of the REVO company, we suspect it was fully merged into its parent company, Duport, in the 1970s.
